Using Deferred Objects

  • Adam Freeman


Throughout this book, you have seen examples that relied on callbacks – you provide a function that is executed when something occurs. A good example is the way events are handled, using a method such as click, passing in a function as an argument. The code statements in the function are not performed until the user triggers the event – until that point our function is dormant.
