JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Data Using Objects Accessing Object Properties

confused about printing a text!!

some times they use document.write(), some times just print() by passing a string in it.. We can use what ever we want to or there is some rule ?

1 Answer

print() is a custom function not a core javascript method. The print() will run whatever is inside the function, often used to log a string to the console.

Unless you have the print function defined then you can use it but it will not be available "out of the box" like document.write().

Chyno Deluxe - sorry I made a mistake, I didn't see that it is a function defined by the user which contains document.write() to avoid writing the code again and again. Thanks :)
