Vanilla JS - Get the max prop value from an object array in JavaScript

This is a quick example of how to get the maximum value of a property in an array of objects in JavaScript.

The below code snippet uses the following three Vanilla JS tools to get the max prop value from an array:

  • the function to create a new array that contains only the property we're interested in (.value)
  • the ES6 Spread Operator (...) to expand/convert the array into a list of arguments that can be passed to a function as input parameters
  • the Math.max() function to get the largest value from the input parameters
const arrayOfObjects = [
    { value: 1 },
    { value: 2 },
    { value: 3 },
    { value: 4 },
    { value: 5 }
const maxValue = Math.max( => x.value));
