function with arguments

Postby Ron » Tue Aug 26, 2008 11:56 am

I downloaded a piece of JS code that I want to run in my method.
It appears that v.4 not supports functions with arguments, like:

function product(a,b)
{
a * b
}

function callproduct()
(
answer = product(3,2)
)

This would be realy nice to have.

Regards,
Ron

Why not use the arguments-array?

Code: Select all
function product()
{
   var a = arguments[0];
   var b = arguments[1];

   return a * b;
}

function callproduct()
{
   var answer = product(3,2);
}

Thanks for the code Joas, in fact it does the same thing.
Problem stays however that I have to rebuilt available
JS code with function arguments.

You can define it with named arguments dynamically, like this...
Code: Select all
function my_global_init_function() {
   globals['product'] = function(a,b) {
      return a*b;
   }
}


Then you be able to call "globals.product(1,2)" in your code. Just be sure your init function is called before you intend to use it (like in your solution open method).
