jQuery $.proxy() Method

❮ jQuery Event Methods


Enforce the context of the "test" function, inside objPerson:

$("button").click($.proxy(objPerson, "test"));
Try it Yourself »

Definition and Usage

The $.proxy method takes an existing function and returns a new one with a particular context.

This method is often used for attaching events to an element where the context is pointing back to a different object.

Tip: If you bind the function returned from $.proxy, jQuery will still unbind the correct function if passed the original.

Syntax 1

$(selector).proxy(function,context) Try it

Syntax 2

$(selector).proxy(context,name) Try it

Parameter Description
function The existing function to be called
context The name of the object where the function lies
name The existing function whose context will be changed (should be a property of the context object).
