    We can count the number of words by using split method of javascript.

    What split method does:

    split() - Splits a string into an array of substrings

    Below is an example:-

    <form name=countingWords>
    <textarea rows="12" name="countingWords1 cols="38" wrap="virtual"></textarea><br>
    <input type="button" value="Calculate Words" onClick="quickcount()"> <input type="text" name="countingWords3" size="20">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function quickcount(){
    var displaycontent=document. countingWords.countingWords1.value
    displaycontent = displaycontent.split(" ")
    document.countingWords.countingWords3.value= displaycontent.length

    By using split() method, we separate the text by spaces and then counting the words by length method. Without the help of split method counting the number of words would be a difficult task.
