Javascript Question

Does JavaScript have a similar capability as LINQ's Select statement?

Say I have an array of window objects and each has an ID property and I need to get an array of those IDs.

In LINQ, I would just do this...

var ids = windows.Select(window =>;

Nice and simple. But in Javascript, I've been doing this...

var ids = [];

for(i = 0; i < windows.length; i++)
var window = windows[i];

I'm just wondering if there's a simpler/easier way in Javascript, similar to LINQ's elegant solution.


If you are happy with IE8 and above support, is a comparable option:

var ids = {

This of course becomes even more succinct (and similar to LINQ) if using ES6 fat arrow functions, although this will require a transpiler if supporting non-cutting edge browsers:

var ids = =>;
