Hi

I have two functions in jquery. They are called like this:

Func1
Func2

The trouble is I only want Func2 to be called when Func1 has completed.

Any help appreciated

Thanks

javascript is single threaded - they will be called in sequence no matter what you do

using javascript callback functions, you can do this as given below:-
function Func1(y, func2)
{
//process Func1 function
var x =10;
x=x+y;

alert('Func1 has done processing, press ok to call func2 now');

func2();//calling func2 function after func1 has finished...
}

function Func2()
{
alert('Func2 is called');
}
//calling func1 and passing reference to func2 to be used as callback function
Func1(5,Func2);

Open in new window
