Boolean Object (JavaScript)

Creates a new Boolean value.

boolObj = new Boolean([boolValue])
boolObj

Required. The variable name to which the Boolean object is assigned.

boolValue

Optional. The initial Boolean value for the new object. If boolvalue is omitted, or is false, 0, null, NaN, or an empty string, the initial value of the Boolean object is false. Otherwise, the initial value is true.

The Boolean object is a wrapper for the Boolean data type. JavaScript implicitly uses the Boolean object whenever a Boolean data type is converted to a Boolean object.

You rarely instantiate the Boolean object explicitly.

The following table lists the properties of the Boolean object.
