I am trying to write a convenience wrapper for console.log, and I would like to print any variables passed in along with their contents.
Can I turn a variable name into a string in js?
There is a possibility. And here is how
var passed_variable = '65'; // The actual variable var varname = 'passed_variable'; // The name of the variable in another variable
Now, pass the
varname around but not the actual variable. When you need to the value of the variable you can simply do :
console.log(varname, ' : ', window[varname]); // Outputs, passed_variable : 65
I hope you find a way not to use this. 🙂
