Terms, Icons, and Labels

Many classes have shortcut names used when creating (instantiating) a class with a configuration object. The shortcut name is referred to as an alias (or xtype if the class extends Ext.Component). The alias/xtype is listed next to the class name of applicable classes for quick reference.

Access Levels

Framework classes or their members may be specified as private or protected. Else, the class / member is public. Public, protected, and private are access descriptors used to convey how and when the class or class member should be used.

Member Types

Member Syntax

Below is an example class member that we can disect to show the syntax of a class member (the lookupComponent method as viewed from the Ext.button.Button class in this case).

lookupComponent ( item ) : Ext.Component
protected

Called when a raw config object is added to this container either during initialization of the items config, or when new items are added), or {@link #insert inserted.

This method converts the passed object into an instanced child component.

This may be overridden in subclasses when special processing needs to be applied to child creation.

Parameters

item :  Object

The config object being added.

Returns
Ext.Component

The component to be added.

Let's look at each part of the member row:

Member Flags

The API documentation uses a number of flags to further commnicate the class member's function and intent. The label may be represented by a text label, an abbreviation, or an icon.

Class Icons

- Indicates a framework class

- A singleton framework class. *See the singleton flag for more information

- A component-type framework class (any class within the Ext JS framework that extends Ext.Component)

- Indicates that the class, member, or guide is new in the currently viewed version

Member Icons

- Indicates a class member of type config

- Indicates a class member of type property

- Indicates a class member of type method

- Indicates a class member of type event

- Indicates a class member of type theme variable

- Indicates a class member of type theme mixin

- Indicates that the class, member, or guide is new in the currently viewed version

Class Member Quick-Nav Menu

Just below the class name on an API doc page is a row of buttons corresponding to the types of members owned by the current class. Each button shows a count of members by type (this count is updated as filters are applied). Clicking the button will navigate you to that member section. Hovering over the member-type button will reveal a popup menu of all members of that type for quick navigation.

Getter and Setter Methods

Getting and setter methods that correlate to a class config option will show up in the methods section as well as in the configs section of both the API doc and the member-type menus just beneath the config they work with. The getter and setter method documentation will be found in the config row for easy reference.

History Bar

Your page history is kept in localstorage and displayed (using the available real estate) just below the top title bar. By default, the only search results shown are the pages matching the product / version you're currently viewing. You can expand what is displayed by clicking on the button on the right-hand side of the history bar and choosing the "All" radio option. This will show all recent pages in the history bar for all products / versions.

Within the history config menu you will also see a listing of your recent page visits. The results are filtered by the "Current Product / Version" and "All" radio options. Clicking on the button will clear the history bar as well as the history kept in local storage.

If "All" is selected in the history config menu the checkbox option for "Show product details in the history bar" will be enabled. When checked, the product/version for each historic page will show alongside the page name in the history bar. Hovering the cursor over the page names in the history bar will also show the product/version as a tooltip.

Search and Filters

Both API docs and guides can be searched for using the search field at the top of the page.

On API doc pages there is also a filter input field that filters the member rows using the filter string. In addition to filtering by string you can filter the class members by access level, inheritance, and read only. This is done using the checkboxes at the top of the page.

The checkbox at the bottom of the API class navigation tree filters the class list to include or exclude private classes.

Clicking on an empty search field will show your last 10 searches for quick navigation.

API Doc Class Metadata

Each API doc page (with the exception of Javascript primitives pages) has a menu view of metadata relating to that class. This metadata view will have one or more of the following:

Expanding and Collapsing Examples and Class Members

Runnable examples (Fiddles) are expanded on a page by default. You can collapse and expand example code blocks individually using the arrow on the top-left of the code block. You can also toggle the collapse state of all examples using the toggle button on the top-right of the page. The toggle-all state will be remembered between page loads.

Class members are collapsed on a page by default. You can expand and collapse members using the arrow icon on the left of the member row or globally using the expand / collapse all toggle button top-right.

Desktop -vs- Mobile View

Viewing the docs on narrower screens or browsers will result in a view optimized for a smaller form factor. The primary differences between the desktop and "mobile" view are:

Viewing the Class Source

The class source can be viewed by clicking on the class name at the top of an API doc page. The source for class members can be viewed by clicking on the "view source" link on the right-hand side of the member row.

Summary

Creates an object wrapper.

The Object constructor creates an object wrapper for the given value. If the value is null or undefined, it will create and return an empty object, otherwise, it will return an object of a type that corresponds to the given value.

When called in a non-constructor context, Object behaves identically.

Using Object given undefined and null types

The following examples store an empty Object object in o: var o = new Object();

var o = new Object(undefined);

var o = new Object(null);

Using Object to create Boolean objects

The following examples store Boolean objects in o:

// equivalent to o = new Boolean(true);
var o = new Object(true);

// equivalent to o = new Boolean(false);
var o = new Object(Boolean());

properties

Instance Properties

constructor

Specifies the function that creates an object's prototype.

Returns a reference to the Object function that created the instance's prototype. Note that the value of this property is a reference to the function itself, not a string containing the function's name, but it isn't read only (except for primitive Boolean, Number or String values: 1, true, "read-only").

All objects inherit a constructor property from their prototype:

 o = new Object // or o = {} in JavaScript 1.2
 o.constructor == Object
 a = new Array // or a = [] in JavaScript 1.2
 a.constructor == Array
 n = new Number(3)
 n.constructor == Number

Even though you cannot construct most HTML objects, you can do comparisons. For example,

 document.constructor == Document
 document.form3.constructor == Form

The following example creates a prototype, Tree, and an object of that type, theTree. The example then displays the constructor property for the object theTree.

 function Tree(name) {
     this.name = name;
 }
 theTree = new Tree("Redwood");
 console.log("theTree.constructor is " + theTree.constructor);

This example displays the following output:

 theTree.constructor is function Tree(name) {
     this.name = name;
 }

The following example shows how to modify constructor value of generic objects. Only true, 1 and "test" variable constructors will not be changed. This example explains that is not always so safe to believe in constructor function.

 function Type(){};
 var    types = [
     new Array,    [],
    new Boolean,    true,
    new Date,
    new Error,
    new Function,    function(){},
    Math,
    new Number,    1,
    new Object,    {},
    new RegExp,    /(?:)/,
    new String,    "test"
 ];
 for(var i = 0; i < types.length; i++){
     types[i].constructor = Type;
     types[i] = [types[i].constructor, types[i] instanceof Type, types[i].toString()];
 };
 alert(types.join("\n"));

prototype

Allows the addition of properties to all objects of type Object.

methods

Instance Methods

constructor ( [value] )

Creates new Object.

Parameters

value :  Object (optional)

The value to wrap.

hasOwnProperty ( prop ) : Boolean

Returns a boolean indicating whether an object contains the specified property as a direct property of that object and not inherited through the prototype chain.

Every object descended from Object inherits the hasOwnProperty method. This method can be used to determine whether an object has the specified property as a direct property of that object; unlike the in operator, this method does not check down the object's prototype chain.

The following example determines whether the o object contains a property named prop:

o = new Object();
o.prop = 'exists';

function changeO() {
    o.newprop = o.prop;
    delete o.prop;
}

o.hasOwnProperty('prop');   //returns true
changeO();
o.hasOwnProperty('prop');   //returns false

The following example differentiates between direct properties and properties inherited through the prototype chain:

o = new Object();
o.prop = 'exists';
o.hasOwnProperty('prop');             // returns true
o.hasOwnProperty('toString');         // returns false
o.hasOwnProperty('hasOwnProperty');   // returns false

The following example shows how to iterate over the properties of an object without executing on inherit properties.

var buz = {
    fog: 'stack'
};

for (var name in buz) {
    if (buz.hasOwnProperty(name)) {
        alert("this is fog (" + name + ") for sure. Value: " + buz[name]);
    }
    else {
        alert(name); // toString or something else
    }
}

Parameters

prop :  String

The name of the property to test.

Returns

:Boolean
Returns true if object contains specified property; else returns false.

isPrototypeOf ( prototype, object ) : Boolean

Returns a boolean indication whether the specified object is in the prototype chain of the object this method is called upon.

isPrototypeOf allows you to check whether or not an object exists within another object's prototype chain.

For example, consider the following prototype chain:

function Fee() {
    // . . .
}

function Fi() {
    // . . .
}
Fi.prototype = new Fee();

function Fo() {
    // . . .
}
Fo.prototype = new Fi();

function Fum() {
    // . . .
}
Fum.prototype = new Fo();

Later on down the road, if you instantiate Fum and need to check if Fi's prototype exists within the Fum prototype chain, you could do this:

var fum = new Fum();
. . .

if (Fi.prototype.isPrototypeOf(fum)) {
// do something safe
}

This, along with the instanceof operator particularly comes in handy if you have code that can only function when dealing with objects descended from a specific prototype chain, e.g., to guarantee that certain methods or properties will be present on that object.

Parameters

prototype :  Object

an object to be tested against each link in the prototype chain of the *object* argument

object :  Object

the object whose prototype chain will be searched

Returns

:Boolean
Returns true if object is a prototype and false if not.

propertyIsEnumerable ( prop ) : Boolean

Returns a boolean indicating if the internal ECMAScript DontEnum attribute is set.

Every object has a propertyIsEnumerable method. This method can determine whether the specified property in an object can be enumerated by a for...in loop, with the exception of properties inherited through the prototype chain. If the object does not have the specified property, this method returns false.

The following example shows the use of propertyIsEnumerable on objects and arrays:

var o = {};
var a = [];
o.prop = 'is enumerable';
a[0] = 'is enumerable';

o.propertyIsEnumerable('prop');   // returns true
a.propertyIsEnumerable(0);        // returns true

The following example demonstrates the enumerability of user-defined versus built-in properties:

var a = ['is enumerable'];

a.propertyIsEnumerable(0);          // returns true
a.propertyIsEnumerable('length');   // returns false

Math.propertyIsEnumerable('random');   // returns false
this.propertyIsEnumerable('Math');     // returns false

Direct versus inherited properties

var a = [];
a.propertyIsEnumerable('constructor');         // returns false

function firstConstructor()
{
    this.property = 'is not enumerable';
}
firstConstructor.prototype.firstMethod = function () {};

function secondConstructor()
{
    this.method = function method() { return 'is enumerable'; };
}

secondConstructor.prototype = new firstConstructor;
secondConstructor.prototype.constructor = secondConstructor;

var o = new secondConstructor();
o.arbitraryProperty = 'is enumerable';

o.propertyIsEnumerable('arbitraryProperty');   // returns true
o.propertyIsEnumerable('method');              // returns true
o.propertyIsEnumerable('property');            // returns false

o.property = 'is enumerable';

o.propertyIsEnumerable('property');            // returns true

// These return false as they are on the prototype which
// propertyIsEnumerable does not consider (even though the last two
// are iteratable with for-in)
o.propertyIsEnumerable('prototype'); // returns false (as of JS 1.8.1/FF3.6)
o.propertyIsEnumerable('constructor'); // returns false
o.propertyIsEnumerable('firstMethod'); // returns false

Parameters

prop :  String

The name of the property to test.

Returns

:Boolean
If the object does not have the specified property, this method returns false.

toLocaleString String

Returns a string representing the object. This method is meant to be overridden by derived objects for locale-specific purposes.

Object's toLocaleString returns the result of calling toString.

This function is provided to give objects a generic toLocaleString method, even though not all may use it. Currently, only Array, Number, and Date override toLocaleString.

Returns

:String
Object represented as a string.

toString String

Returns a string representation of the object.

Every object has a toString() method that is automatically called when the object is to be represented as a text value or when an object is referred to in a manner in which a string is expected. By default, the toString() method is inherited by every object descended from Object. If this method is not overridden in a custom object, toString() returns "[object type]", where type is the object type. The following code illustrates this:

var o = new Object();
o.toString();           // returns [object Object]

You can create a function to be called in place of the default toString() method. The toString() method takes no arguments and should return a string. The toString() method you create can be any value you want, but it will be most useful if it carries information about the object.

The following code defines the Dog object type and creates theDog, an object of type Dog:

function Dog(name,breed,color,sex) {
    this.name=name;
    this.breed=breed;
    this.color=color;
    this.sex=sex;
}

theDog = new Dog("Gabby","Lab","chocolate","female");

If you call the toString() method on this custom object, it returns the default value inherited from Object:

theDog.toString(); //returns [object Object]

The following code creates and assigns dogToString() to override the default toString() method. This function generates a string containing the name, breed, color, and sex of the object, in the form "property = value;".

Dog.prototype.toString = function dogToString() {
    var ret = "Dog " + this.name + " is a " + this.sex + " " + this.color + " " + this.breed;
    return ret;
}

With the preceding code in place, any time theDog is used in a string context, JavaScript automatically calls the dogToString() function, which returns the following string:

Dog Gabby is a female chocolate Lab

toString() can be used with every object and allows you to get its class. To use the Object.prototype.toString() with every object, you need to call Function.prototype.call() or Function.prototype.apply() on it, passing the object you want to inspect as the first parameter called thisArg.

var toString = Object.prototype.toString;

toString.call(new Date); // [object Date]
toString.call(new String); // [object String]
toString.call(Math); // [object Math]

Returns

:String
Object represented as a string.

valueOf Object

Returns the primitive value of the specified object.

JavaScript calls the valueOf method to convert an object to a primitive value. You rarely need to invoke the valueOf method yourself; JavaScript automatically invokes it when encountering an object where a primitive value is expected.

By default, the valueOf method is inherited by every object descended from Object. Every built- in core object overrides this method to return an appropriate value. If an object has no primitive value, valueOf returns the object itself, which is displayed as:

[object Object]

You can use valueOf within your own code to convert a built-in object into a primitive value. When you create a custom object, you can override Object.valueOf to call a custom method instead of the default Object method.

You can create a function to be called in place of the default valueOf method. Your function must take no arguments.

Suppose you have an object type myNumberType and you want to create a valueOf method for it. The following code assigns a user-defined function to the object's valueOf method:

myNumberType.prototype.valueOf = new Function(functionText)

With the preceding code in place, any time an object of type myNumberType is used in a context where it is to be represented as a primitive value, JavaScript automatically calls the function defined in the preceding code.

An object's valueOf method is usually invoked by JavaScript, but you can invoke it yourself as follows:

myNumber.valueOf()

Note: Objects in string contexts convert via the toString method, which is different from String objects converting to string primitives using valueOf. All objects have a string conversion, if only "[object type]". But many objects do not convert to number, boolean, or function.

Returns

:Object
Returns value of the object or the object itself.
Static Methods

create ( proto, [propertiesObject] ) : Object
static sta

Creates a new object with the specified prototype object and properties.

Classical inheritance with Object.create

Below is an example of how to use Object.create to achieve classical inheritance, this is for single inheritance, which is all that Javascript supports.

//Shape - superclass
function Shape() {
  this.x = 0;
  this.y = 0;
}

Shape.prototype.move = function(x, y) {
    this.x += x;
    this.y += y;
    console.info("Shape moved.");
};

// Rectangle - subclass
function Rectangle() {
  Shape.call(this); //call super constructor.
}

Rectangle.prototype = Object.create(Shape.prototype);

var rect = new Rectangle();

rect instanceof Rectangle //true.
rect instanceof Shape //true.

rect.move(); //Outputs, "Shape moved."

If you wish to inherit from multiple objects, then mixins are a possibility.

function MyClass() {
     SuperClass.call(this);
     OtherSuperClass.call(this);
}

MyClass.prototype = Object.create(SuperClass.prototype); //inherit
mixin(MyClass.prototype, OtherSuperClass.prototype); //mixin

MyClass.prototype.myMethod = function() {
     // do a thing
};

The mixin function would copy the functions from the superclass prototype to the subclass prototype, the mixin function needs to be supplied by the user.

Using propertiesObject argument with Object.create

var o;

// create an object with null as prototype
o = Object.create(null);


o = {};
// is equivalent to:
o = Object.create(Object.prototype);


// Example where we create an object with a couple of sample properties.
// (Note that the second parameter maps keys to *property descriptors*.)
o = Object.create(Object.prototype, {
  // foo is a regular "value property"
  foo: { writable:true, configurable:true, value: "hello" },
  // bar is a getter-and-setter (accessor) property
  bar: {
    configurable: false,
    get: function() { return 10 },
    set: function(value) { console.log("Setting `o.bar` to", value) }
}})


function Constructor(){}
o = new Constructor();
// is equivalent to:
o = Object.create(Constructor.prototype);
// Of course, if there is actual initialization code in the Constructor function, the Object.create cannot reflect it


// create a new object whose prototype is a new, empty object
// and a adding single property 'p', with value 42
o = Object.create({}, { p: { value: 42 } })

// by default properties ARE NOT writable, enumerable or configurable:
o.p = 24
o.p
//42

o.q = 12
for (var prop in o) {
   console.log(prop)
}
//"q"

delete o.p
//false

//to specify an ES3 property
o2 = Object.create({}, { p: { value: 42, writable: true, enumerable: true, configurable: true } });

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

proto :  Object

The object which should be the prototype of the newly-created object. Throws a `TypeError` exception if the `proto` parameter isn't null or an object.

propertiesObject :  Object (optional)

If specified and not undefined, an object whose enumerable own properties (that is, those properties defined upon itself and not enumerable properties along its prototype chain) specify property descriptors to be added to the newly-created object, with the corresponding property names.

Returns

:Object
the newly created object.

defineProperties ( obj, props )
static sta

Defines new or modifies existing properties directly on an object, returning the object.

In essence, it defines all properties corresponding to the enumerable own properties of props on the object.

Object.defineProperties(obj, {
  "property1": {
    value: true,
    writable: true
  },
  "property2": {
    value: "Hello",
    writable: false
  }
  // etc. etc.
});

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object on which to define or modify properties.

props :  Object

An object whose own enumerable properties constitute descriptors for the properties to be defined or modified.

defineProperty ( obj, prop, descriptor )
static sta

Defines a new property directly on an object, or modifies an existing property on an object, and returns the object.

This method allows precise addition to or modification of a property on an object. Normal property addition through assignment creates properties which show up during property enumeration (for...in loop or Object#keys method), whose values may be changed, and which may be deleted. This method allows these extra details to be changed from their defaults.

Property descriptors present in objects come in two main flavors: data descriptors and accessor descriptors. A data descriptor is a property that has a value, which may or may not be writable. An accessor descriptor is a property described by a getter-setter pair of functions. A descriptor must be one of these two flavors; it cannot be both.

Both data and accessor descriptor is an object with the following optional keys:

  • configurable True if and only if the type of this property descriptor may be changed and if the property may be deleted from the corresponding object. Defaults to false.

  • enumerable True if and only if this property shows up during enumeration of the properties on the corresponding object. Defaults to false.

A data descriptor is an object with the following optional keys:

  • value The value associated with the property. Can be any valid JavaScript value (number, object, function, etc) Defaults to undefined.

  • writable True if and only if the value associated with the property may be changed with an assignment operator. Defaults to false.

An accessor descriptor is an object with the following optional keys:

  • get A function which serves as a getter for the property, or undefined if there is no getter. The function return will be used as the value of property. Defaults to undefined.

  • set A function which serves as a setter for the property, or undefined if there is no setter. The function will receive as only argument the new value being assigned to the property. Defaults to undefined.

Bear in mind that these options are not necessarily own properties so, if inherited, will be considered too. In order to ensure these defaults are preserved you might freeze the Object.prototype upfront, specify all options explicitly, or point to null as proto property.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object on which to define the property.

prop :  String

The name of the property to be defined or modified.

descriptor :  Object

The descriptor for the property being defined or modified.

freeze ( obj )
static sta

Freezes an object: that is, prevents new properties from being added to it; prevents existing properties from being removed; and prevents existing properties, or their enumerability, configurability, or writability, from being changed. In essence the object is made effectively immutable. The method returns the object being frozen.

Nothing can be added to or removed from the properties set of a frozen object. Any attempt to do so will fail, either silently or by throwing a TypeError exception (most commonly, but not exclusively, when in strict mode).

Values cannot be changed for data properties. Accessor properties (getters and setters) work the same (and still give the illusion that you are changing the value). Note that values that are objects can still be modified, unless they are also frozen.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object to freeze.

getOwnPropertyDescriptor ( obj, prop ) : Mixed
static sta

Returns a property descriptor for an own property (that is, one directly present on an object, not present by dint of being along an object's prototype chain) of a given object.

This method permits examination of the precise description of a property. A property in JavaScript consists of a string-valued name and a property descriptor. Further information about property descriptor types and their attributes can be found in Object#defineProperty.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object in which to look for the property.

prop :  String

The name of the property whose description is to be retrieved. A property descriptor is a record with some of the following attributes: - **value** The value associated with the property (data descriptors only). - **writable** True if and only if the value associated with the property may be changed (data descriptors only). - **get** A function which serves as a getter for the property, or undefined if there is no getter (accessor descriptors only). - **set** A function which serves as a setter for the property, or undefined if there is no setter (accessor descriptors only). - **configurable** true if and only if the type of this property descriptor may be changed and if the property may be deleted from the corresponding object. - **enumerable** true if and only if this property shows up during enumeration of the properties on the corresponding object.

Returns

:Mixed
Value of the property descriptor.

getOwnPropertyNames ( obj ) : String[]
static sta

Returns an array of all properties (enumerable or not) found directly upon a given object.

Rreturns an array whose elements are strings corresponding to the enumerable and non-enumerable properties found directly upon obj. The ordering of the enumerable properties in the array is consistent with the ordering exposed by a for...in loop (or by Object#keys) over the properties of the object. The ordering of the non-enumerable properties in the array, and among the enumerable properties, is not defined.

var arr = ["a", "b", "c"];
print(Object.getOwnPropertyNames(arr).sort()); // prints "0,1,2,length"

// Array-like object
var obj = { 0: "a", 1: "b", 2: "c"};
print(Object.getOwnPropertyNames(obj).sort()); // prints "0,1,2"

// Printing property names and values using Array.forEach
Object.getOwnPropertyNames(obj).forEach(function(val, idx, array) {
  print(val + " -> " + obj[val]);
});
// prints
// 0 -> a
// 1 -> b
// 2 -> c

// non-enumerable property
var my_obj = Object.create({}, { getFoo: { value: function() { return this.foo; }, enumerable: false } });
my_obj.foo = 1;

print(Object.getOwnPropertyNames(my_obj).sort()); // prints "foo, getFoo"

If you want only the enumerable properties, see Object#keys or use a for...in loop (although note that this will return enumerable properties not found directly upon that object but also along the prototype chain for the object unless the latter is filtered with hasOwnProperty).

Items on the prototype chain are not listed:

function ParentClass () {
}
ParentClass.prototype.inheritedMethod = function () {
};

function ChildClass () {
  this.prop = 5;
  this.method = function () {};
}
ChildClass.prototype = new ParentClass;
ChildClass.prototype.prototypeMethod = function () {
};

alert(
  Object.getOwnPropertyNames(
    new ChildClass() // ["prop", "method"]
  )
)

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object whose enumerable and non-enumerable own properties are to be returned.

Returns

:String[]
Array of property names.

getPrototypeOf ( object ) : Object
static sta

Returns the prototype (i.e. the internal [[Prototype]]) of the specified object.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

object :  Object

The object whose prototype is to be returned. Throws a TypeError exception if this parameter isn't an Object.

Returns

:Object
the prototype

isExtensible ( obj ) : Boolean
static sta

Determines if an object is extensible (whether it can have new properties added to it).

Objects are extensible by default: they can have new properties added to them, and can be modified. An object can be marked as non-extensible using Object#preventExtensions, Object#seal, or Object#freeze.

// New objects are extensible.
var empty = {};
assert(Object.isExtensible(empty) === true);

// ...but that can be changed.
Object.preventExtensions(empty);
assert(Object.isExtensible(empty) === false);

// Sealed objects are by definition non-extensible.
var sealed = Object.seal({});
assert(Object.isExtensible(sealed) === false);

// Frozen objects are also by definition non-extensible.
var frozen = Object.freeze({});
assert(Object.isExtensible(frozen) === false);

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object which should be checked.

Returns

:Boolean
True when object is extensible.

isFrozen ( obj ) : Boolean
static sta

Determines if an object is frozen.

An object is frozen if and only if it is not extensible, all its properties are non-configurable, and all its data properties (that is, properties which are not accessor properties with getter or setter components) are non-writable.

// A new object is extensible, so it is not frozen.
assert(Object.isFrozen({}) === false);

// An empty object which is not extensible is vacuously frozen.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object which should be checked.

Returns

:Boolean
True if the object is frozen, otherwise false.

isSealed ( obj ) : Boolean
static sta

Determines if an object is sealed.

An object is sealed if it is non-extensible and if all its properties are non-configurable and therefore not removable (but not necessarily non-writable).

// Objects aren't sealed by default.
var empty = {};
assert(Object.isSealed(empty) === false);

// If you make an empty object non-extensible, it is vacuously sealed.
Object.preventExtensions(empty);
assert(Object.isSealed(empty) === true);

// The same is not true of a non-empty object, unless its properties are all non-configurable.
var hasProp = { fee: "fie foe fum" };
Object.preventExtensions(hasProp);
assert(Object.isSealed(hasProp) === false);

// But make them all non-configurable and the object becomes sealed.
Object.defineProperty(hasProp, "fee", { configurable: false });
assert(Object.isSealed(hasProp) === true);

// The easiest way to seal an object, of course, is Object.seal.
var sealed = {};
Object.seal(sealed);
assert(Object.isSealed(sealed) === true);

// A sealed object is, by definition, non-extensible.
assert(Object.isExtensible(sealed) === false);

// A sealed object might be frozen, but it doesn't have to be.
assert(Object.isFrozen(sealed) === true); // all properties also non-writable

var s2 = Object.seal({ p: 3 });
assert(Object.isFrozen(s2) === false); // "p" is still writable

var s3 = Object.seal({ get p() { return 0; } });
assert(Object.isFrozen(s3) === true); // only configurability matters for accessor properties

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object which should be checked.

Returns

:Boolean
True if the object is sealed, otherwise false.

keys ( obj ) : String[]
static sta

Returns an array of a given object's own enumerable properties, in the same order as that provided by a for-in loop (the difference being that a for-in loop enumerates properties in the prototype chain as well).

Returns an array whose elements are strings corresponding to the enumerable properties found directly upon object. The ordering of the properties is the same as that given by looping over the properties of the object manually.

var arr = ["a", "b", "c"];
alert(Object.keys(arr)); // will alert "0,1,2"

// array like object
var obj = { 0 : "a", 1 : "b", 2 : "c"};
alert(Object.keys(obj)); // will alert "0,1,2"

// getFoo is property which isn't enumerable
var my_obj = Object.create({}, { getFoo : { value : function () { return this.foo } } });
my_obj.foo = 1;

alert(Object.keys(my_obj)); // will alert only foo

If you want all properties, even the not enumerable, see Object#getOwnPropertyNames.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object whose enumerable own properties are to be returned.

Returns

:String[]
Array of property names.

preventExtensions ( obj )
static sta

Prevents new properties from ever being added to an object (i.e. prevents future extensions to the object).

An object is extensible if new properties can be added to it. preventExtensions marks an object as no longer extensible, so that it will never have properties beyond the ones it had at the time it was marked as non-extensible. Note that the properties of a non-extensible object, in general, may still be deleted. Attempting to add new properties to a non-extensible object will fail, either silently or by throwing a TypeError (most commonly, but not exclusively, when in strict mode).

It only prevents addition of own properties. Properties can still be added to the object prototype.

If there is a way to turn an extensible object to a non-extensible one, there is no way to do the opposite in ECMAScript 5

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object which should be made non-extensible.

seal ( obj )
static sta

Seals an object, preventing new properties from being added to it and marking all existing properties as non-configurable. Values of present properties can still be changed as long as they are writable.

By default, objects are extensible (new properties can be added to them). Sealing an object prevents new properties from being added and marks all existing properties as non-configurable. This has the effect of making the set of properties on the object fixed and immutable. Making all properties non-configurable also prevents them from being converted from data properties to accessor properties and vice versa, but it does not prevent the values of data properties from being changed. Attempting to delete or add properties to a sealed object, or to convert a data property to accessor or vice versa, will fail, either silently or by throwing a TypeError (most commonly, although not exclusively, when in strict mode code).

The prototype chain remains untouched.

NOTE: This method is part of the ECMAScript 5 standard.

Parameters

obj :  Object

The object which should be sealed.
