BackboneJS - Collection Model


Advertisements

Description

To specify the model class, we need to override the model property of the collection class.

Syntax

Backbone.Collection.model

Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <head>
      <title>Collection Example</title>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.3.min.js"
         type = "text/javascript"></script>
      
      <script src = "https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/underscore.js/1.8.2/underscore-min.js"
         type ="text/javascript"></script>
      
      <script src = "https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/backbone.js/1.1.2/backbone-min.js"
         type = "text/javascript"></script>
   </head>
   
   <body>
      <script type = "text/javascript">
      
         //The model 'MyTeam' includes default values and extended using the 
         //Backbone.Model class
         var MyTeam = Backbone.Model.extend ({
            defaults: {
               player: "sachin",
               country: "india"
            },
         });
         
         //'MyTeam1' is an instance of the collection
         var MyTeam1 = Backbone.Collection.extend ({
            model: MyTeam  //model 'MyTeam'is specified for a collection by overriding the 'model' property
         });

         //The collection 'MyTeam1' is instantiated by using new keyword
         var myval = new MyTeam1({});

         //The JSON.stringify() method returns values of collection in the JSON format
         document.write("The values in the collection are: ",JSON.stringify(myval));
      </script>
      
   </body>
