propertyIsEnumerable Method (Object) (JavaScript)

Determines whether a specified property is enumerable.

object. propertyIsEnumerable(proName)


Required. Instance of an object.


Required. String value of a property name.

The propertyIsEnumerable method returns true if proName exists in object and can be enumerated using a For loop. The propertyIsEnumerable method returns false if object does not have a property of the specified name or if the specified property is not enumerable. Typically, predefined properties are not enumerable, but user-defined properties are always enumerable.

The propertyIsEnumerable method does not consider objects in the prototype chain.

var a = new Array("apple", "banana", "cactus");

// Output: true
