JavaScript for...in loop


Advertisements


The for...in loop is used to loop through an object's properties. As we have not discussed Objects yet, you may not feel comfortable with this loop. But once you understand how objects behave in JavaScript, you will find this loop very useful.

Syntax

for (variablename in object){
   statement or block to execute
}

In each iteration, one property from object is assigned to variablename and this loop continues till all the properties of the object are exhausted.

Example

Try the following example to implement ‘for-in’ loop. It prints the web browser’s Navigator object.

<html>
   <body>
      
      <script type="text/javascript">
         <!--
            var aProperty;
            document.write("Navigator Object Properties<br /> ");
         
            for (aProperty in navigator) {
               document.write(aProperty);
               document.write("<br />");
            }
            document.write ("Exiting from the loop!");
         //-->
      </script>
      
      <p>Set the variable to different object and then try...</p>
   </body>
</html>
