JS: Function Object

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Function is the value of the property key "Function" of the global object. [JS: the Global Object]

console.log( window["Function"] === Function ); // true


Function is a function.

[see JS: Data Types]

// type of Function
console.log ( typeof Function === "function" ); // true


Parent of Function is Function.prototype. [see JS: Prototype and Inheritance]

// parent of Function
console.log ( Object.getPrototypeOf ( Function ) === Function.prototype ); // true


Purpose of Function is:

  1. To define a function from strings. (Useful when you need to generate function definition at run time).
  2. Holds the property key "prototype". The value of Function.prototype is the parent object of all function objects.
