Dynamically call a function

5 New Member
For the project I'm working on, I need to dynamically call one of several functions (which are dynamically named by asp.net). How do I call a function when I have the function name in a string? A case statement is not an option, because the function names are dynamic.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function function1() {
  2.    ...
  3. }
  4. function function2() {
  5.     ...
  6. }
  7. var functionName = 'function1'
...what next?

How do I execute the function whose name is stored in functionName?

when the functions are declared in the window-scope then you might use:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. window['yourFunctionName']();
to call the function.

kind regards

I have a table that stores the menu item name, parent item (if applicable), display order, etc. so that I can dynamically load my

I'm trying to generate dynamic functions to use as separate callbacks for an AJAX API call. The API doesn't seem to allow for the inclusion of any parameters in the callback, so I can't associate the call with the handling routine (for reference purposes, I'm calling the Google Language Translation API). As a work-around, I thought I'd dynamically generate a unique callback function for each API call. Right now, I'm stuck hobbling...
