@use JSDoc

@global

Table of Contents

Overview

The @global tag specifies that a symbol should appear in the documentation as a global symbol. JSDoc ignores the symbol's actual scope within the source file. This tag is especially useful for symbols that are defined locally, then assigned to a global symbol.

Examples

Use the @global tag to specify that a symbol should be documented as global.

Document an inner variable as a global
(function() {
    /** @global */
    var foo = 'hello foo';

    this.foo = foo;
}).apply(window);
