Maximizing the number of parameters through JavaScript

Hi Jessica,

Inside every function, we have an object called an arguments array. It is this object that stores and calculates how many parameters you are passing on to the function. This array is present in every function even if we do not declare this or demand it.

With the help of the arguments array and some minor changes in defining the functions we create, we can make a function that accepts any number of parameters.

Instead of the normal function with parameters,

function hello(x,y,z){
 
}

We create a function as so:

function hello(){
 
}

See that the function we created above no longer has any parameters. Then we just create a loop inside the function we made:

function hello(){
for (x=0;x<hello.arguments.length;x++)
//do whatever
}



Thanks Jessica, hope this would be of help.

If you are a beginner and wants to learn about JavaScript programming, one way of learning this yourself is through an online tutorial website like JavaScript Tutorial. This site gives an excellent tutorials and examples on different web programming languages like JavaScript, PHP, HTML, HTML5, and so on. Just visit the site to start your lesson.

JavaScript, on the other hand, is the scripting language of the web that is being used by billions of web pages around the world. Web sites use this to add style, functionality, validate forms, communicate with the server, and more. You can really use it on whatever purpose it is you want. An example of a JavaScript command is the “document.write(‘’)”. It is used to display or print something on the page. Here is an example for this command that will display the text “Hello! How are you doing?”:

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write(‘Hello! How are you doing?’)
</script>

Output:

Hello! How are you doing?

Here’s another example using it to display a link. This will display the link for this website.

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write(‘<a href=’+’”’+’ http://www.techyv.com’+’”’+’>TechyV.com</a>’)
</script>

Output:

TechyV.com
