Map.prototype.entries()

The entries() method returns a new Iterator object that contains the [key, value] pairs for each element in the Map object in insertion order. In this particular case, this iterator object is also an iterable, so the for-of loop can be used. When the protocol [Symbol.iterator] is used, it returns a function that, when invoked, returns this iterator itself.

Syntax

entries()

Return value

A new Map iterator object.

Examples

Using entries()

let myMap = new Map()
myMap.set('0', 'foo')
myMap.set(1, 'bar')
myMap.set({}, 'baz')

let mapIter = myMap.entries()

console.log(mapIter.next().value)  // ["0", "foo"]
console.log(mapIter.next().value)  // [1, "bar"]
console.log(mapIter.next().value)  // [Object, "baz"]
