Create a List of Objects in Javascript

Well, is it possible in javascript to create a list of objects in javascript?. The concept of lists is not there in Javascript. To create an effect of lists, we can use arrays and maps.

Create a List of Objects in Javascript using Array

In the below example, we will be creating a list of objects using arrays as lists do not exist in javascript.

Example:-

Create a list of objects with properties voterName, eligibility, and city

Code:-

let customList = [
    { voterName: 'Paul', eligibility: 'Yes' , city: "NewYork"},
    { voterName: 'Eva', eligibility: 'No', city: "Santiago"},
    { voterName: 'Veronica', eligibility: 'Yes' , city: "NewYork"}
  ];

  for (let i = 0; i < customList .length; i ++ ){
     console.log(customList[i]);
}

Output:-

{ voterName: 'Paul', eligibility: 'Yes', city: 'NewYork' }
{ voterName: 'Eva', eligibility: 'No', city: 'Santiago' }
{ voterName: 'Veronica', eligibility: 'Yes', city: 'NewYork' }

Explanation:-

Here, in the above code, we create an array of objects named customList and then iterate the array using a for-loop to get the items sequentially.

Create a Dynamic List of Objects in Javascript

We can create an effect of dynamic list creation in javascript using arrays.

Example:-

Create a dynamic list of objects with properties voterName, eligibility and city

Code:-

let customList = [];
let voterNames = ["Paul", "Eva", "Veronica"];
let eligibility = ["Yes", "No", "Yes"];

for(i = 0; i< voterNames.length; i++ )
{
    var objectValue1 = {};
    objectValue1['type1'] = 'voterName';
    objectValue1['value1'] = voterNames[i];
    objectValue1['type2'] = 'eligibility';
    objectValue1['value2'] = eligibility[i];
    customList.push(objectValue1);

}

for (let i = 0; i < customList .length; i ++ )
{
         console.log(customList[i].type1 
            + " : "
             + customList[i].value1
              + " , " 
              + customList[i].type2 
              + " : " 
              + customList[i].value2 );
 }

Output:-

voterName : Paul , eligibility : Yes
voterName : Eva , eligibility : No
voterName : Veronica , eligibility : Yes

Explanation:-

  • Here, in the above code, we create an array of objects named customList. In the customList we add propertiesvoterName,’ and ‘eligibility’, and their corresponding values using a for-loop. 
  • To sequentially get the values of customList, we are using for-loop and printing on console the property and its corresponding value.

Example:-

Create a dynamic list of names

Code:-

let customList = new Array();
customList.push('George');
customList.push('Ryan');

for (var i = 0; i < customList.length; i ++ ){
    console.log(customList[i]);
}

Output:-

George
Ryan

Explanation:-

Here, in the above code, we create an array named customList and push the values to it using the push() method. Again, we are iterating the values of customList sequentially using for-loop. 

I hope this article helped you create a list of objects in javascript using arrays. Good Luck !!!
