Concept of This

What is 'this' in JavaScript?

This in JavaScript simply refers to the 'object' inside which current function is being executed. Most often 'this' will refer to the 'window object' but when inside some object property, which is function, then 'this' will refer to that object.



alert(this); //returns window object

var obj1 = new Object;
obj1.name = "Peter";
obj1.fn1 = function(){
  alert(this); //returns obj1
