The size accessor property returns the number of elements in a Map object.


The value of size is an integer representing how many entries the Map object has. A set accessor function for size is undefined; you can not change this property.


Using size

var myMap = new Map();
myMap.set("a", "alpha");
myMap.set("b", "beta");
myMap.set("g", "gamma");

myMap.size // 3
