Extends Literal. Whilst each type of theme template has access to existing objects, you can create your own basic objects within your template. An object can be initialised as a list of zero or more key value pairs, enclosed in curly braces {...}.


// initiate an empty object
var myEmptyObj = {};

var isCustomer = true;

// initiate an object with properties
var person = {
    name: 'Bobby Bobson',
    age: 21,
    customer: isCustomer // assign value of existing variable

Note that in initialisation is always followed by a semicolon.

Accessing properties

Having created an object, you'll need to read or change its properties. Object properties can be accessed by using the dot notation or the bracket notation.

// getting values
person.name; // Bobby Bobson
person['age']; // 21

// setting values
person.age = 22;
person['name'] = 'Bob Bobson';
