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!

_.bound( obj, function);

Parameters: 

  • obj: The object in which the function is defined.
  • function: A function defined containing the returning logic.

Return Value: This method returns a function.



Note: This will not work in normal JavaScript because it requires the underscore.js contrib library to be installed. Underscore.js contrib library can be installed using npm install underscore-contrib –save.

Example 1:

Javascript




// Defining underscore contrib variable
var _ = require('underscore-contrib'); 
  
var gfgObject = {
    name: "GeeksforGeeks",
    detail: "Computer science portal for geeks",
    geekFunc: function() {
        return this.name + ": " + this.detail;
    }
};
  
var gfgFunction = _.bound(gfgObject, "geekFunc");
console.log(gfgFunction());

Output:

GeeksforGeeks: Computer science portal for geeks

Example 2: 

Javascript




// Defining underscore contrib variable
var _ = require('underscore-contrib'); 
  
var gfgObject = {
    one : 1,
    two : 2,
    geekFunc: function() {
        return this.one + " and " + this.two;
    }
};
  
var gfgFunction = _.bound(gfgObject, "geekFunc");
console.log(gfgFunction());

Output:

1 and 2
