In JavaScript, how do I apply a method directly to an array?

So I can use something like this:


And have it work on any array?

You can do it using Array.prototype:

Array.prototype.getFirstElement = function() {
  return this[0]

That creates a new getFirstElement() method you can apply to any array.

You would use it like this:

["123", "1245"].getFirstElement() // "123"
