JavaScript Proxy() Object is used to define the custom behavior of fundamental operations (e.g. property lookup, assignment, enumeration, function invocation, etc).


const p = new Proxy(target, {
 Proxy method: function(target, thisArg, argumentsList) {

Example: Below examples illustrate the handler.apply() method in JavaScript:


    function sum(a, b) {
      return a + b;
    const handler = {
      apply: function(target, thisArg, argumentsList) {
        console.log(`Calculate sum: ${argumentsList}`);
        return target(argumentsList[0], argumentsList[1])*14/3;
    const proxy1 = new Proxy(sum, handler);
    console.log(sum(23, 4));
    console.log(proxy1(23, 4));


"Calculate sum: 23, 4"
