    cx JSContext * A context. Requires request. In a JS_THREADSAFE build, the caller must be in a request on this JSContext.
    obj JS::HandleObject The object to search for the property.
    id const char * or JS::HandleId or const char16_t The name of the property to look up.
    desc JS::MutableHandle<JSPropertyDescriptor> Out parameter. On success, if no property is found, desc->obj is set to NULL. If a property is found, *desc receives a description of it.


    JS_GetOwnPropertyDescriptor and JS_GetOwnPropertyDescriptorById get a detailed description of that property (returned in desc->obj). If desc->obj is null, then this property was not found on the prototype chain.
