Shorthand

How about if the Js compiler mistakes for { name : name} property/key name for the name's value and Value name for just a string name.

How does it decide internally, what is the Property and what is the value, even for short hand? {name}

Only users make mistakes, not the compiler. :wink:

The shorthand notion can only be used when the property name is the same as the name of the variable containing the value. Otherwise, you must use the full style where the colon clearly separates the property from the value.
