Yes! But it is still important to name the object method something that makes sense. There are the custom methods that you create, but you do have to name them as well as clarify what they are supposed to do when called. There are also built-in methods that are pre-defined so all you need to do is call the already established name.

Here's a link to the JavaScript Object Methods on w3schools which goes over and gives examples for:

  • The this keyword
  • JavaScript methods
  • Accessing object methods
  • Adding a method to an object
  • Using built in methods

Happy coding!

Thank you so much! I love it when you respond to the answers because you always go above and beyond from the explanation. Very helpful. Thank you!
