Prototype Enumerable partition() Method

previous next


Advertisements

This method partitions the elements in two groups:

By default, regular JavaScript boolean equivalence is used, but an iterator can be provided, that computes a boolean representation of the elements.

This is a preferred solution to using both findAll/select and reject: it only loops through the elements once!

The optional context parameter is what the iterator function will be bound to. If used, the this keyword inside the iterator will point to the object given by the argument.

Syntax:

Iterator.partition([context]);

Return Value :

Example:

<html>
<head>
<title>Prototype examples</title>
<script type="text/javascript" 
   src="/javascript/prototype.js">
</script>

<script>

function showResult(){

  var arr = ['hello', null, 42, false, true, , 17].partition();

  alert("Test 1 : " + arr.inspect() );
  // Returns [['hello', 42, true, 17], [null, false, undefined]]

  var arr = $R(1, 10).partition(function(n) {
  return 0 == n % 2;
  })

  alert("Test 2 : " + arr.inspect() );
  // Returns   [[2, 4, 6, 8, 10], [1, 3, 5, 7, 9]]
}

</script>
</head>

<body>

  <p>Click the button to see the result.</p>
  <br />
  <br />
  <input type="button" value="Result" onclick="showResult();"/>

</body>
</html>

To understand it in better way you can Try it yourself.
