JavaScript new object | Basic code

  • by

JavaScript new object means you can create an object, use the new keyword with Object() constructor, like this:

const person = new Object();

And add properties to this object, we have to do something like this:

person.firstName = 'Name1';
person.lastName = 'Name2';

To create a new object use key-value pairs separated by ‘:’ inside a set of curly braces({ }) and your object is ready to be served (or consumed), like below:

const person = {
  firstName: 'testFirstName',
  lastName: 'testLastName'

JavaScript new object

Simple example code.

<!DOCTYPE html>

    const person = {
      firstName: 'John',
      lastName: 'Steve'

    const p1 = new Object();
    p1.age = '007';
    p1.firstName = 'James';
    p1.lastName = 'Bond';

Using ‘new’ with a user-defined constructor function

This will be useful if want to create hundreds of “person” objects. To get rid of manually adding properties to the objects, we create custom (or user-defined) functions. We first create a constructor function and then use the ‘new’ keyword to get objects:

function Person(fname, lname) {
  this.firstName = fname;
  this.lastName = lname;

Now, anytime you want a ‘Person’ object, just do this:

const personOne = new Person('testFirstNameOne', 'testLastNameOne');
const personTwo = new Person('testFirstNameTwo', 'testLastNameTwo');

Using a Constructor Function: You can create objects using constructor functions. Constructor functions are used to create multiple objects with the same structure. Here’s an example:

function Person(firstName, lastName, age) {
  this.firstName = firstName;
  this.lastName = lastName;
  this.age = age;

const person = new Person("John", "Doe", 30);

Using Object.create(): You can create an object and specify its prototype using the Object.create() method.

const personPrototype = {
  greet: function() {
    console.log(`Hello, my name is ${this.firstName} ${this.lastName}.`);

const person = Object.create(personPrototype);
person.firstName = "John";
person.lastName = "Doe";
person.age = 30;

Using ES6 Classes: You can also create objects using ES6 classes, which provide a more structured way to define object blueprints.

class Person {
  constructor(firstName, lastName, age) {
    this.firstName = firstName;
    this.lastName = lastName;
    this.age = age;

const person = new Person("John", "Doe", 30);

These are some of the common ways to create objects in JavaScript. The choice of method depends on your specific use case and coding style preferences.
