Learn how to use the ellipsis operator with the spread syntax, which allows you to expand arrays into multiple variables.
- [Instructor] The other use for the ellipsis operator…in ES6 is with spread.…In some ways, this is the opposite of Rest parameters…which essentially gathers values into a single argument.…The spread syntax is used to take an iterable object…such as an array and assign it to multiple variables.…This can happen when passing an argument to a function…or when applying values into an array.…Let's look at how to use the spread syntax in a function.…Here we have a constructor function…that takes three arguments.…
Then we have three potential values for those arguments…stored in an array.…When calling the constructor function in ES5,…we would have to individually reference each array element…via its index.…This is obviously pretty repetitive and with ES6,…it's a perfect use case for the spread syntax.…Because all the values of the array are stored…in the same order as the constructor arguments,…we can just use the array variable as an argument…to the constructor function…and apply the spread operator to it.…
This will spread the array into three arguments…
