new constructor[( [arguments] )]
Required. Object's construction. The parentheses can be omitted if the constructor takes no arguments.
Optional. Any arguments to be passed to the new object's constructor.
The new operator performs the following tasks:
It creates an object with no members.
It calls the constructor for that object, passing a reference to the newly created object as the this pointer.
The constructor then initializes the object according to the arguments passed to the constructor.
These examples demonstrate some uses of the new operator.
var myObject : Object = new Object;
var myArray : Array = new Array();
var myDate : Date = new Date("Jan 5 1996");
