previous next AddThis Social Bookmark Button


This method incrementally builds a result value based on the successive results of the iterator. This can be used for array construction, numerical sums/averages, etc.

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.


Iterator.inject(accumulator, context);

Return Value :

  • Returns accumulated value.

<script type="text/javascript" 


function showResult(){

  alert("Test1: " + $R(1,10).inject(0, function(acc, n) 
                                         return acc + n; 
                                       }) );
  // Returns 55 (sum of 1 to 10)

  alert("Test2: " + $R(2,5).inject(1, function(acc, n) 
                                        return acc * n; 
                                      }) );
  // Returns 120 (factorial 5)
