How to Get 'Object this' Inside an Arrow Function in JavaScript
Adam C. |
In an arrow function, the this keyword behaves differently than in a regular function. In an arrow function, the this keyword is lexically scoped, meaning that it takes its value from the enclosing execution context. This is in contrast to regular functions, where the value of this is determined by how the function is called.
