JavaScript Reflect is a built-in object. It gives access to other methods for interceptable operations. Like most objects in JavaScript, it is not a constructor.

Syntax:

Reflect.function()

Example: Below examples illustrate the Reflect.setPrototypeOf() method in JavaScript:

Javascript




const object1 = {};
 
console.log(Reflect.setPrototypeOf(object1, Object.prototype));
console.log(Reflect.setPrototypeOf(object1, null));
 
const object2 = {};
console.log(Reflect.setPrototypeOf(Object.freeze(object2), null));
 
let object3 = {
    gfg() {
        return 'value';
    }
}
let obj = {
    geeks() {
        return 'answer';
    }
}
Object.setPrototypeOf(obj, object3);
console.dir(obj);
console.log(obj.geeks());
console.log(obj.gfg());


Output

true
true
false
{ geeks: [Function: geeks] }
answer
value

Note: There are no Properties or Contructor in Reflect Object.

The complete list of JavaScript Reflect are listed below:

String Methods: JavaScript methods are actions that can be performed on objects. There are two types of String methods in JavaScript.
