Why isn't _this available in my callback. I see it in Closure.

Especially since friendId is available and working, but in the callback _this is showing as undefined.

Thanks

I changed the code to work, kind of a hack, but it works



So I added an ID to the <a link and grab it via that ID, instead of it being the this to the inviteToEvent function. <br /> <br /> Mark rel="nofollow">

_this.toggle() won't work because _this is not a jQuery wrapped set.

So toggle is a JQuery method and that is why I can't call that method.

But still, I found it very odd that _this was undefined in my callback, when it was obviously declared in the outer enclosing function.

So while I wouldn't be able to call toggle(), I should still see it defined and usable with POJS, Plain Ol JavaScript.

Thanks.

I will try Eric's suggestion and see what happens.

Well, I thought it was a great suggestion, and besides Bear, Eric is the one with the always awesome great suggestions, so I just assumed it was Eric's.

Gregg does have some good suggestions, as long as he has had his meds that day. ;)
