javascript object, access variable property name?

Trying to get more advanced in my JS…

I have a custom object:

Object myObject = new Object();

myObject.thing = anythingHere;

I would like to be able to retrieve a custom objects property by passing in a string… eg:

var propertyString = 'thing';

I can’t quite figure that out. I’ve looked at a number of tutorials for custom objects – but nothing shows how to get properties that I don’t know the names of… Also – I would like to avoid looping through all properties if possible…


How to solve:

Simply use myObject['thing'].


You could use:

myObject[propertyString] ;
