What is null in javascript?

Post by admin » Sun Oct 20, 2019 1:55 am

null is used for representing the intentional absence of an object value and is a primitive value. Unlike undefined, it is not a property of the global object.

It is equal to undefined but not identical to it.

Code: Select all

null == undefined; // true
null === undefined; // false
CAREFUL: The typeof null is 'object'.

Code: Select all

typeof null; // 'object';
To properly check if a value is null, compare it with the strict equality operator

Code: Select all

var a = null;
a === null; // true
