JS Variables

Post by Admin on Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:03 pm

JavaScript Variables

JavaScript variables are containers for storing data values.

In this example, x, y, and z, are variables:
Example
var x = 5;
var y = 6;
var z = x + y;

From the example above, you can expect:

x stores the value 5
y stores the value 6
z stores the value 11

JavaScript Identifiers

All JavaScript variables must be identified with unique names.

These unique names are called identifiers.

Identifiers can be short names (like x and y) or more descriptive names (age, sum, totalVolume).

The general rules for constructing names for variables (unique identifiers) are:

Names can contain letters, digits, underscores, and dollar signs.
Names must begin with a letter
Names can also begin with $ and _ (but we will not use it in this tutorial)
Names are case sensitive (y and Y are different variables)
Reserved words (like JavaScript keywords) cannot be used as names

For any clarifications you can leave your comment below. Laughing

Good Evening Jason! Numbers are written without quotes. If you put a number in quotes, it will be treated as a text string. Therefore, if you run the program the answer will be 3333 because the variable you assign in x is treated as a text string it will not be added to 33.

Creating a variable in JavaScript is called "declaring" a variable. You declare a JavaScript variable with the var keyword:, After the declaration, the variable has no value. Technically it has the value of undefined. To assign a value to the variable, use the equal sign:, You can also assign a value to the variable when you declare it:. In the example below, I create a variable called myName and assign the value "Kayganthe" to it. Razz

var myName = "Kayganthe";

What is assignment operator?

In JavaScript, the equal sign (=) is an "assignment" operator, not an "equal to" operator.

Just simply start the statement with var and separate the variables by comma. For Example: var person = "Kayganthe", myName = "Kayla", age = 19;

Did you get it?

Strings are written inside double or single quotes. It does not matter.
