The JavaScript String.fromCharCode() method is used to create a string from the given sequence of UTF-16 code units. This method returns a string, not a string object.

Syntax:

String.fromCharCode(n1, n2, ..., nX)

Parameters: The method takes the UTF-16 Unicode sequences as its argument. The number of arguments to this method depends upon the number of characters to be joined as a string. The range of the numbers is between 0 and 65535

Return value: The return value of this method is a string containing the characters whose UTF-16 codes were passed to the method as arguments.

Below is an example of the String.fromCharCode() Method.

Example: 

JavaScript




<script>
    function func() {
        var str = String.fromCharCode(71, 70, 71);
        console.log(str);

</script>
