Hey geek! The constant emerging technologies in the world of web development always keeps the excitement for this subject through the roof. But before you tackle the big projects, we suggest you start by learning the basics. Kickstart your web development journey by learning JS concepts with our JavaScript Course. Now at it's lowest price ever!

  • Example: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj
  // is created for the value 27
  var obj = new Boolean(27);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
  • Output: 
     
true

The boolean.valueOf() method is used to return a boolean value either “true” or “false” depending upon the value of the specified boolean object.
Syntax: 
 

boolean.valueOf()

Parameter: This method does not accept any parameter.
Return value: It returns a boolean value either “true” or “false” depending upon the value of the specified boolean object.
More codes for the above method are as follows: 
 

  • Program 1: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is created
  // for the value true.
  var obj = new Boolean(true);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
true
  •  

 



  • Program 2: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is
  // created for the value 1.
  var obj = new Boolean(1);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function
  // is used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
true
  •  

 

  • Program 3: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is
  // created for the value -1.
  var obj = new Boolean(-1);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function
  // is used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
true
  • Program 4: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is
  // created for the value 1.2
  var obj = new Boolean(1.2);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function
  // is used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
true
  • Program 5: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is
  // created for the value as string "gfg"
  var obj = new Boolean("gfg");
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
true

 

  • Program 6: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is created for the value false.
  var obj = new Boolean(false);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
false
  •  

 

  • Program 7: 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is created
  // for the value zero (0)
  var obj = new Boolean(0);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  document.write(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
false

 

  • Program 1: Here the value as geeksforgeeks gives an error because this value is not defined only true and false has been predefined.
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is created
  // for the value geeksforgeeks.
  var obj = new Boolean(geeksforgeeks);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  console.log(obj.valueOf());
</script>
  • Output: 
     
Error: geeksforgeeks is not defined
  •  
  • Program 2: Here complex number can not be taken as the parameter only integer values and string can be taken as the parameter that is why it returns error. 
     

javascript




<script>
  // Here Boolean object obj is created
  // for the value such as complex number 1+2i
  var obj = new Boolean(1 + 2i);
 
  // Here boolean.valueOf() function is
  // used for the created object obj.
  console.log(obj.valueOf());
  • Output: 
     
Error: Invalid or unexpected token
