How do I remove a property from a JavaScript object

0 votes

Say I create an object as follows:

let myObject = {
    "ircEvent": "PRIVMSG",
    "method": "newURI",
    "regex": "^http://.*"
};

What is the best way to remove the property regex to end up with new myObject as follows?

let myObject = {
    "ircEvent": "PRIVMSG",
    "method": "newURI"
};

Hello @kartik,

The delete operator is used to remove properties from objects.

const obj = { foo: "bar" }
delete obj.foo
obj.hasOwnProperty("foo") // false

Note that, for arrays, this is not the same as removing an element. To remove an element from an array, use Array#splice or Array#pop. For example:

arr // [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]
arr.splice(3,1); // 3
arr // [0, 1, 2, 4]

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
