TypeScript Tutorial - return based on args

Hello, This is the third article of the advanced typescript tutorial series. Today I'll cover basic usage of generic functions

type Point = {
  x?: number
  y?: number
  z?: number
const myFunc = <T extends Point>(args: T): T => {
  return args
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

As arguments, I'll provide an object containing Point properties. This function will only return Partial of Point based on provided parameters in args argument;

const result = myFunc({
  x: 1,
  y: 1,
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And the intellisense for such function is
Typescript return correct args

As you see there is no z property here. Typescript already knows we provided these 2 args and it should return only them!

This part is super short as I can provide the infinite number of generic functions usages.
