Hi,

In this code, the line clearInterval(myVar) never stops the interval, any idea?

<script>

var myVar = "";

$("li").bind("taphold",function(event){	
	
	alert($(this).attr("numeroEvento"));

var formData = {evento: $(this).attr("numeroEvento")}; //Array 
 
$.ajax({
    url : "medicionInsert.php",
    type: "POST",
    data : formData,
    success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)
    {
        alert (data);
		var myVar = setInterval(function(){ test() }, 3000);
		
    },
    error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown)
    {
 
    }
});

	/*if($(this).attr("enviado") == 'no'){
		
		
	var x = $(this).html();
	
	$(this).html(x + "<p>Evento enviado a medicion</p>");
	
	$(this).attr("enviado","si");
	
	alert("EVENTO ENVIADO A MEDICION");
	
}else{
	
	alert($(this).attr("numeroEvento")+" ya fue enviado a medicion");
		
}*/		
	
	
	});
	
	var test = function(){
	
	$.ajax({
    url : "pararlectura.php",
    type: "POST",
    success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)
    {
		var prueba = data
		alert(prueba)
		
        if ($.trim(prueba) == "YA"){
			
			alert ("test");
			clearInterval(myVar);
		}
		
		
    },
    error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown)
    {
 
    }
});	
	
	}
	
	
	
</script>

it's a scope issue
use :
myVar = setInterval(function(){ test() }, 3000);

If it doesn't work, use :
	window.myVar = "";

	$("li").bind("taphold",function(event){	
		
		alert($(this).attr("numeroEvento"));

		var formData = {evento: $(this).attr("numeroEvento")}; //Array 
	 
		$.ajax({
			url : "medicionInsert.php",
			type: "POST",
			data : formData,
			success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)
			{
				alert (data);
				window.myVar = setInterval(function(){ test() }, 3000);
				
			},
			error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown)
			{
		 
			}
		});

	});
	
	var test = function(){
	
		$.ajax({
			url : "pararlectura.php",
			type: "POST",
			success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)
			{
				var prueba = data;
				alert(prueba)
				
				if ($.trim(prueba) == "YA") {
					alert ("test");
					clearInterval(window.myVar);
				}
			},
			error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown)
			{
		 
			}
		});	
	
	}
