ES6 Boolean

The ES6 Boolean objects can represent two values, either 'true' or 'false'. In JavaScript, the Boolean is used as a function to get the value of an object, a variable, conditions, expressions, and many more in terms of true and false.

The object has the initial false value if the value parameter is omitted or 0, negative, false, null, NaN, undefined, or an empty ("") string.

Syntax

There are three methods and two properties of the Boolean object. Let us try to understand the properties and methods of the Boolean object.

Boolean Properties

There are two properties of the Boolean object that are tabulated as follows:

S.no. Properties Description
1. Constructor This property returns a constructor function for an object.
2. Prototype It is used to add properties and methods to the Boolean instances.

Let us try to elaborate on the above Boolean properties.

ES6 Boolean constructor() property

The JavaScript Boolean constructor() method is used to return the reference to the Boolean function that created the Boolean prototype.

Syntax

Return value

Example

Output

example.constructor() is : function Boolean() { [native code] }

ES6 Boolean prototype property

It is an inbuilt property in ES6, which is used for adding new properties and methods to any Boolean instance such as Number, String, Date, etc. It is a global property which is available with almost all objects.

Syntax

Return value

  • Boolean.prototype.valueOf(): It is used to return the value of Boolean object.
  • Boolean.prototype.toString(): It is used to return a string according to the Boolean value.

Example

Output

Yellow

Boolean Methods

The Boolean object contains three methods, which are tabulated as follows:

S.no. Methods Description
1. toSource() This method returns a string having a source of the Boolean object.
2. toString() It returns a string of either true or false depends on the Boolean object value.
3. valueOf() It returns the primitive value of the Boolean object.

Let us try to elaborate on the above Boolean methods.

Boolean.prototype.toSource() method

This method returns a string that contains the source code of the Boolean object. It overrides the Object.prototype.toSource() method.

Note: This method is not compatible with all browsers.

Syntax

Example

You can run the above example in the Firefox browser because this method is not compatible with other browsers.

Boolean.prototype.toString() method

It returns a string of either true or false depends on the Boolean object value.

Syntax

Example

Output

true

Boolean.prototype.valueOf() method

It returns the primitive value of the Boolean object.

Syntax

Example

Output

true
