prototype Property (Intl.DateTimeFormat)

Returns a reference to the prototype for a formatter.




The dateTimeFormat argument is the name of a formatter.

Use the prototype property to provide a base set of functionality to a class of objects. New instances of an object "inherit" the behavior of the prototype assigned to that object.

For example, to add a method to the Intl.DateTimeFormat object that returns the value of the largest element of the set, declare the function, add it to Intl.DateTimeFormat.prototype, and then use it.
