Reading Snippets [46 => Objects] πŸ“”

github logo ・1 min read  

The only way to remove a property from an object is to use the delete operator. Using null or 0 only removes the value associated with the property but not the key.

The keyword may need to be notated as a string literal in order for it to be properly interpreted by older JavaScript engines.

var test = {
'case': 'I am a keyword, so I must be notated as a string',
delete: 'I am a keyword, so me too' // raises SyntaxError
