JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-245 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to Invokes the provided function after wait milliseconds.

  • Use setTimeout() to delay execution of fn.
  • Use the spread (...) operator to supply the function with an arbitrary number of arguments.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2 
const delay = (fn, wait, ...args) => setTimeout(fn, wait, ...args);

delay(
  function(text) {
    console.log(text);
  },
  1000,
  'later'
);

Sample Output:

later

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Checking if a key exists in a JavaScript object?

Checking for undefined-ness is not an accurate way of testing whether a key exists. What if the key exists but the value is actually undefined?

var obj = { key: undefined };
obj["key"] !== undefined // false, but the key exists!

You should instead use the in operator:

"key" in obj // true, regardless of the actual value

If you want to check if a key doesn't exist, remember to use parenthesis:

!("key" in obj) // true if "key" doesn't exist in object
!"key" in obj   // ERROR!  Equivalent to "false in obj"

Or, if you want to particularly test for properties of the object instance (and not inherited properties), use hasOwnProperty:

obj.hasOwnProperty("key") // true
