Problem with inner functions in Ajax


I have a problem while using one ajax function inside of another ajax function,


function ajaxFunction1()

http.onreadystatechange = RespondFunction1();


function ajaxFunction2()
http.onreadystatechange = respondFunction2();

Here, my problem is,

i expect the function ajaxFunction2() should invoke after the full execution of function RespondFunction1();
but, the actual result invoke the function ajaxFunction2() after invoking the function respondFunction1() its not waiting for the ajaxFunction1() to complete fully.


if the respondFunction1() is inside a for...loop,
i get only the final iteration as a output,
middle iterations are suspended.

Suggest me this regards.

http.onreadystatechange = RespondFunction1();
Should be

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. http.onreadystatechange = RespondFunction1;
If you use RespondFunction1(), the browser will execute RespondFunction1 and use the result.

If you needed to pass extra parameters to RespondFunction1, do something like this instead:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var extraArg = 'test';
  2. http.onreadystatechange = function(response) { return RespondFunction1(response, extraArg); };
