Crypto.constructor (Property)

A constructor function for the Crypto object in Netscape.


JavaScript - 1.2
Netscape - 4.04
Property/method value type:Crypto object
JavaScript syntax:Ncrypto.constructor

You can use this as a way of creating Crypto objects.

This property is useful if you have an object that you want to clone, but you don't know what sort of object it is. Simply access the constructor belonging to the object you have a reference to.

Netscape provides constructors for many objects, virtually all of them in fact, even when it is highly inappropriate to do so. MSIE is far more selective and there are some occasions when you might wish for a constructor that MSIE does not make available.
