Accessor property and its attributes in JavaScript

The accessor property helps us in implementing getter and setter functions in JavaScript.They execute a function on getting or setting a value.

There are four attributes of an accessor property −

  • get − It gets called when a property is read. It doesn’t’ take any arguments/
  • set − It gets called when a property is set. It takes only one argument.
  • enumerable − Allows the object to be iterable when set to true.
  • configurable − When set to false it will not allow to delete the property or change its values.

Following is the code for accessor property and its attributes −
