Prototype Enumerable any() Method


This method determines whether at least one element is boolean-equivalent to true, either directly or through computation by the provided iterator.

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.



Return Value

  • Returns boolean true value if atleast one value in the iterator is true.

<script type="text/javascript" 


function showResult(){

  alert( "[].any() : "  + [].any() );
  // false  (empty arrays have no elements)

  alert("$R(0, 2).any() : " + $R(0, 2).any() );
  // true (on the second loop cycle, 1 is true-equivalent)

  alert("[0, 1, 2].any() : " + [0, 1, 2].any() );
  // true (with 1 and 2 loop cycle is true )

  alert([9, 10, 15].any(function(n) { return n >= 10; }) );
  // true (the iterator will return true more than 10 )
