JavaScript variables can store any type of value. The JavaScript typeof operator can be used to find out the native type of value.

It returns a string value indicating the type of the value.

Syntax:

typeof(value)

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <body>
    <h2>Function returns native type of the value</h2>
    <strong>Output: </strong><br />
    <div id="output"></div>
    <script>
      document.getElementById("output").innerHTML =
        typeof 98 + " " + typeof "geeksforgeeks" + " " + typeof null;
    </script>
  </body>
</html>


Output: 

Possible output values of typeof:

Type Result
undefined “undefined”
null “object”
