Lesson 15 - Anonymous Objects And Prototypes In JavaScript

In the previous lesson, Encapsulation In JavaScript, we looked at encapsulation. In today's JavaScript tutorial, we're going to go over the promised prototypes that we've successfully avoided until now. Today, we're finally going to understand how OOP in JavaScript works under the hood, learn to read older source codes (which you'd encounter sooner or later anyway :) ), and we'll be able to debug our code better by fully understanding its structure. We're going to learn to extend already existing classes and use new operators.

Creating Objects In JavaScript

Objects are fundamental JavaScript components. Virtually everything in JavaScript can be perceived as an object. We can create objects by ourselves. There are several ways to do it. We should be aware how they work at least to be able to read others' source codes. Let's introduce JavaScript objects in depth.

new Object()

The first way is to use new Object() to create a new empty object. We already know that we can add properties and methods to JavaScript objects freely, even they've been already created, although this is not a good practice. Let's try this approach:

Premium article is a large database made up of manuals and tutorials, whose main goal is to provide high-quality IT education to everyone. We started out in the Czech republic, where we display roughly a million articles per month and receive plenty of gratitude from our users. Thanks to our successful establishment, we are now bringing these articles to the rest of the world.

Although we are trying to keep our content free of charge, maintaining the site is a huge effort for everyone involved. Therefore, some content (exercises and more advanced material) costs network points. Don't worry, they're really cheap :)
