How to create a dynamic call property on javascript object with jQuery


Hallo all. I got a javascript object with some propeties let's say

function Animal() {;;

I need to call id function in a dynamic way to get and set its value: something like this

Animal animal = new Animal();
var propertyName = "id";
animal.+propertyName = "name";

Is there an elegant way to do it? With jQuery?

Kind regards


Apart from object syntax, in JavaScript you can also use an array-like syntax to query object properties. So in your case:

function Animal() {; };
Animal animal = new Animal(); = "testId";

var propertyName = "id";
alert(animal[propertyName]); // this should alert the value "testId";
