Sample text

It works like this: 19 CHAPTER 2 ■ JAVASCRIPT SYNTAX if (condition) { statements; } The condition is contained within parentheses. The condition always resolves to a Boolean value, which is either true or false. The statement or statements contained within the curly braces will only be executed if the result of the condition is true. "); } The result of the condition is false because one is not greater than two. We’ve indented everything between the curly braces. This is not a syntax requirement of JavaScript—we’ve done it purely to make our code more readable.

Luckily, there are a couple more ways of storing data. First, we’ll look at a more readable way of populating arrays, and then move on to the preferred method, storing data as an object. Associative arrays The beatles array is an example of a numeric array. The index for each element is a number that increments with each addition to the array. The index of the first element is zero, the index of the second element is one, and so on. If you only specify the values of an array, then that array will be numeric.

Instead, you should be using a generic Object. Objects Like an array, an object is a grouping of multiple values under the same name. Each one of these values is a property of the object. living = false; 16 CHAPTER 2 ■ JAVASCRIPT SYNTAX Again, like the Array, an object is declared by using the Object keyword, but instead of using square brackets with an index to specify elements, you use dot notation and specify the property name the same way you would on any JavaScript object. For more about Objects, see the section "Objects" at the end of this chapter.
