Welcome back to shortlearner.com, in our previous post we see how to convert words into number with the help of PHP.
Now today we will see how to convert numbers into words with the help of JavaScript.

```<span id="words"></span>
<input id="digit" type="text" />
```

We call a javascript onkeyup  function to get the number and convert it into words. by using below javascript code.

```var a = ['','one ','two ','three ','four ', 'five ','six ','seven ','eight ','nine ','ten ','eleven ','twelve ','thirteen ','fourteen ','fifteen ','sixteen ','seventeen ','eighteen ','nineteen '];
var b = ['', '', 'twenty','thirty','forty','fifty', 'sixty','seventy','eighty','ninety'];

function inWords (num) {
if ((num = num.toString()).length > 9) return 'overflow';
n = ('000000000' + num).substr(-9).match(/^(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{1})(\d{2})\$/);
if (!n) return; var str = '';
str += (n[1] != 0) ? (a[Number(n[1])] || b[n[1][0]] + ' ' + a[n[1][1]]) + 'crore ' : '';
str += (n[2] != 0) ? (a[Number(n[2])] || b[n[2][0]] + ' ' + a[n[2][1]]) + 'lakh ' : '';
str += (n[3] != 0) ? (a[Number(n[3])] || b[n[3][0]] + ' ' + a[n[3][1]]) + 'thousand ' : '';
str += (n[4] != 0) ? (a[Number(n[4])] || b[n[4][0]] + ' ' + a[n[4][1]]) + 'hundred ' : '';
str += (n[5] != 0) ? ((str != '') ? 'and ' : '') + (a[Number(n[5])] || b[n[5][0]] + ' ' + a[n[5][1]]) + 'only ' : '';
return str;
}

document.getElementById('digit').onkeyup = function () {
document.getElementById('words').innerHTML = inWords(document.getElementById('digit').value);
};```
