JS: Reflect.getOwnPropertyDescriptor

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

New in ES2015.

Reflect.getOwnPropertyDescriptor ( obj, key )

Return the property attributes. If the property doesn't exist, returns undefined.

[see JS: Property Attributes]

The return value is a Property Descriptor.

[see JS: Property Descriptor]

If obj is not object, throw a TypeError exception.

const hh = {p:4};

console.log (
 Reflect.getOwnPropertyDescriptor ( hh , "p" )
);
// { value: 4, writable: true, enumerable: true, configurable: true }

// non-exist key
console.log (
 Reflect.getOwnPropertyDescriptor ( hh , "yyy" ) === undefined
);
// true

Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor vs Reflect.getOwnPropertyDescriptor?

What's the difference?

Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor ( obj, key ) will first convert obj to object.
