TypeScript Accessors


Example

In this example, we modify the "Simple class" example to allow access to the speed property. Typescript accessors allow us to add additional code in getters or setters.

class Car {
    public position: number = 0;
    private _speed: number = 42;
    private _MAX_SPEED = 100
    
    move() {
        this.position += this._speed;
    }
    
    get speed(): number {
        return this._speed;
    }

    set speed(value: number) {
        this._speed = Math.min(value, this._MAX_SPEED);
    }
}

let car = new Car();
car.speed = 120;
console.log(car.speed);  // 100
