undefined and not defined in JS


undefined is a property of the global object. That is, it is a variable in global scope. The initial value of undefined is the primitive value undefined.

A variable is ‘declared’, it has its own placeholder (memory is allcoated) but not having the value of itself ‘defined’ hence ‘undefined’. Until the variable has assigned a value, the ‘undefined’ fills that particular placeholder and ‘undefined’ is itself a datatype.

Not Defined

This case comes in error where js engine neither find that particular variable nor its placeholder and cannot find the variable in 1st phase of context (Memory allocation context)

JS is loosely typed language, this means that JavaScript will figure out what type of data you have and make the necessary adjustments so that you don’t have to redefine your different types of data.
