Pictorial Presentation:

JavaScript: Returns a passed string with letters in alphabetical order

Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>Returns a passed string with letters in alphabetical order</title>
</head>
<body>
  
</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function alphabet_order(str)
  {
return str.split('').sort().join('');
  }
console.log(alphabet_order("webmaster"));

Sample Output:

abeemrstw

Explanation:

The split() method is used to split a String object into an array of strings by separating the string into substrings.
Code : console.log('32243'.split(""));
Output : ["3", "2", "2", "4", "3"]

The sort() method is used to sort the elements of an array in place and returns the array.
Code : console.log(["3", "2", "2", "4", "3"].sort());
Output : ["2", "2", "3", "3", "4"]

The join() method is used to join all elements of an array into a string.
Code : console.log(["2", "2", "3", "3", "4"].join(""));
Output : "22334"
