24. Core JavaScript Reference > String: support for strings

Name

String: support for strings — ECMAScript v1: Object → String

Constructor

new String(s) // Constructor function
String(s)     // Conversion function

Arguments

s

The value to be stored in a String object or converted to a primitive string.

Returns

When String( ) is used as a constructor with the new operator, it returns a String object, which holds the string s or the string representation of s. When the String( ) constructor is used without the new operator, it simply converts s to a primitive string and returns the converted value.
