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'
  8.  
...what next?

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

Thanks

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

Hello, I'm toying with the idea of loading a MenuStrip (VB.Net 2005) dynamically based on who is logged into my system.

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...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
