using setTimeout when using prototype

I have an object, and I define the following:
var processForm=new Object();

processForm=function(inservleturl) {
this.inservleturl = inservleturl;
this.submitForm();
}

processForm.prototype.submitForm2=function() {
}

processForm.prototype.submitForm=function() {
setTimeout("submitStep2()", 20);
}
How can the submitForm function's setTimeout call submitStep2?

Thank you.

processForm=function(inservleturl) {
this.inservleturl = inservleturl;
this.submitForm();

}

processForm.prototype.submitForm2=function() {
}

processForm.prototype.submitForm=function() {
var self = this;
setTimeout(
function(){ self.submitForm2();}
, 20);
}

No need to assign an object to the variable when you overwrite
it immediatly afterwards:
processForm=function(inservleturl) {
this.inservleturl = inservleturl;
this.submitForm();
}

processForm.prototype.submitForm2=function() {
Should this have been "submitStep2"?
}

processForm.prototype.submitForm=function() {
setTimeout("submitStep2()", 20);
WHen the first argument to setTimeout is a string, then it
is parsed and executed as a program in the global context.
Even if it wasn't, "submitStep2" is not a variable in
any scope.

Try:
var self = this;
setTimeout(function(){self.submitStep2();}, 20);

Say property instead and you are correct.

^^^^^
Are you sure?

Not understood. I assumed that "submitForm2" should have been
"submitStep2". It was a property of processForm.prototype, but it was
not a variable anywhere.

.... checking ... rechecking ... yes, I'm sure.

Perhaps it would be more readable to Rename the variable "self" to
"thisProcessFrom", but that would not change the meaning of the
program.

What I meant was that a method reference does not need to be a
identifier of a variable for the method to be possible to be called.

Correct. Sorry, I overlooked the first line, probably because it was late.

You've already been told to pay more attention to what you write.

Time-of-day is no excuse for carelessness.

Gaining a reputation for unreliability will not enhance your career
prospects.

Feeling that you must answer, even if in haste, is mere arrogance; you
are not indispensable.
