The Javascript weakMap.has() is an inbuilt function in JavaScript that is used to return a boolean value which indicates whether an element with a particular key is present in the weakmap object or not. 



Parameters: It accepts a parameter ‘key’ which is the key of the element which is going to be tested for presence in the object weakmap. 

Return values: It returns true if the element with the specified key is present in the weakmap object otherwise it returns false.

Below are examples of weakMap.has() method.

Example 1: Below is a basic example of weakmap.has() method that returns true.


    function gfg() {
    const weakmap = new WeakMap();
    const key = {};
    weakmap.set(key, 'gfg');



Example 2: Here output is false because the key “key1” has not been set at the end of the weakMap object. 


    // Creating a WeakMap() object
    const weakmap1 = new WeakMap();
    // Creating a key "key1"
    const key1 = {};
    // Testing whether the key is present
    // in the weakMap() object or not
