objects in arrays

" " indicates code.

I have created a javascript object by use of a function.

object function
"function myObject(attrib ute1, attribute2,etc) "
"this.attribute 1=attribute1"
"this.attribute 2=attribute2"
I wish to put the object I create into an array, so I create the array

"myObjectArray= new Array()"

Then I say that I wish to fill the aray with objects

"myObjectArray= new(myObject)"

Then I create the instances

"myObjectAr ray[0]=new myObject(attrib ute1,attribute2 ,etc)"
"myObjectAr ray[1]=new myObject(attrib ute1,attribute2 ,etc)"

This all seems to work fine until I try and establish how many objects I
have by looking at the length of my myObjectArray.

"myObjectArray. length" returns as undefined.

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks

That's your problem. Leave that line out and it should work.
After that line, myObjectArray is no longer an array.
You don't have to say what you're going to put into an array,
and there is no way to do so.

Can someone point me to an example of how to implement and access the kind of object shown below? Most of the examples if found are an object that contains one other object. I need to create an object that contains a hash of sub-objects each sub-object is made up of a number of different objects and an array of an object type. Object1 contains scalars

I am not a javascript guru or anything so I was wondering if someone could tell me what the code below is doing. Is it creating a multidimensional array?

I have two questions which are very similar: Is it possible to return an object in C++. Below is part of my code for reference however I am more concerned about the concept.

Ok, I'm quite a newbie, so this question may appear silly. I'm using g++ 3.3.x. I had been taught that an array isn't a lot different from a pointer (in fact you can use the pointer arithmetics to "browse" it). So I expected that when I run this program, I get both c1.A and c2.A pointing to the same address, and changing c1.A means that also c2.A changes too. ----- BEGIN example CODE -----------

Hello Is there any explanation why Microsoft chose to implement arrays as objects allocated on the heap instead of structs allocated on the stack? For "mathematical stuff", one normally wishes to avoid unnecessary garbage collection, but that is exactly what's going to happen if a lot of arrays, matrixes etc are allocated on the heap.

Hi, Is there a general solution for the following problem: I have an array of instances of class B. Class B is publicly derived from class A. Then I have a class named Buffer that generally takes care of allocating and deallocating arrays. Class Buffer knows only that the objects contained in its internal array are derived from class A but not that they are exactly of type B, so Buffer has a member variable of type A* that points at...

I've read the msdn doc about IEnumerable. It seems to me that IEnumerable objects are essentially wrapped-up arrays. It simply gives us the foreach convenience. Is this correct?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
