setObj.add(value)

setObj

Required. A Set object.

value

Required. New element of the Set.

The new element can be of any type and must be unique. If you add a non-unique element to a Set, the new element will not be added to the collection.

The following example shows how to add members to a set and then retrieve them.

var s = new Set();
s.add("Thomas Jefferson");
s.add(1776);
s.add("founding father");

s.forEach(function (item) {
    document.write(item.toString() + ", ");
});

// Output:
// Thomas Jefferson, 1776, founding father,
