Logical AND Operator (&&) (JavaScript)

Performs a logical conjunction on two expressions.

result = expression1 && expression2 


Any variable.


Any expression.


Any expression.

If, and only if, both expressions evaluate to True, result is True. If either expression evaluates to False, result is False.

JavaScript uses the following rules for converting non-Boolean values to Boolean values:

  • All objects are considered true.

  • Strings are considered false if, and only if, they are empty.

  • null and undefined are considered false.

  • Numbers are false if, and only if, they are zero.
