Is there an initBinding() method in either javascript or jquery?


Relatively newbie in the world of javascript and jquery.

Someone told me there is a predefined javascript function called: initBinding().
It is supposed to be a javascript predefined method to bind the controls and data.

I'm not seeing any references to it anywhere online.
I believe that one of us is confused on the matter.

Can someone clarify this?

With jquery all bindings are done for you when the document is loaded.

Say you wanted to capture when someone clicks a link then this would be an example

<a href="somelink.php" id="mylink">Click me</a>

$(function() { // This will only fire when the document has loaded
     $("#mylink").click(function(e){ // we bind the click event on the anchor tag
          e.preventDefault() // stop the link being followed
          alert("You clicked my link")

Is this what you are referring to?

No, I was actually checking on the actual existence if the call (in either JavaScript or Jquery) of the call: initBinding().

I've searched and not found any reference to the specific call. I want to understand the call ( if it in fact exists ) or point out to them that it doesn't.

Thanks for the explanation so far though.

I don't know who's telling you that, but initBinding() is just a function name that someone made up - like naming your functions with meaningful names so you can quickly know what they are for
It is not some special js command
