propertyIsEnumerable Method (JavaScript)

Returns a Boolean value indicating whether a specified property is part of an object and if it is enumerable.

object.propertyIsEnumerable(proName)

object

Required. Instance of an object.

proName

Required. String value of a property name.

The propertyIsEnumerable method returns true if proName exists in object and can be enumerated using a ForIn 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 while user-defined properties are always enumerable.

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

function testIsEnumerable(){
  var a = new Array("apple", "banana", "cactus");
  return(a.propertyIsEnumerable(1));
}
