Back to Basics of Life

Once again it's time to go back to basics. The basic premise on which our culture is based. We are so busy in our day to day life that we sometimes seems to ignore the most basic things in life. These things could be as simple as
- Saying hello to a friend (whom you are not in contact for quite some time)
- Saying hello to a friend whom you daily meet
- Caring for kids and elders
- Respecting all people (from all walks of life)
- Helping someone in need (in your capacity)
- Thanking those who helped us
- Controlling our words
- Listen when someone says something (usually people don't listen, they only listen what they want to hear)
- Help in day to day task (family)
- Sharing joy and grief (as sharing is caring)

And many more things.... These are so simple things that we normally don't have time to indulge in.

Remember *Life takes a 360 degree turn* at you (at some point in life :))...

JavaScript Function Spaghetti Code

In this post we will have a look at the spaghetti code created by functions and how to avoid them. First lets quickly go through why this is a cause of concern.


Problems with Function Spaghetti Code

Variables/ functions are added to the global scope
The code is not modular
There's potential for duplicate function names
Difficult to maintain
No namespace sense.
Let's take for example the following set of functions and check whats the issue with them.
// file1.js
function saveState(obj) {     // write code here to saveState of some object     alert('file1 saveState'); }
// file2.js (remote team or some third party scripts) function saveState(obj, obj2) {      // further code...     alert('file2 saveState"); }
Now the problem here is if your application is using saveState() then the execution of saveState() which one to call is determined by the script loading.  The later script overrides same functions already defined by earlier script.
For e.g.

If this script is refer…

JavaScript - The this keyword

"this" is one of the most misunderstood construct in JavaScript.  To understand this first lets go through how to create a construction function in JavaScript.  A constructor function is a function which is used to create instances of objects in JavaScript.

You define a constructor function using the same notation that you use to define a normal JavaScript function.  The convention to follow is to capitalize the first letter of the function name.

This requirement is not enforced by the JavaScript language but it is a generally accepted practice and there are many benefits which we will shortly discuss.

Let's define a constructor function to hold our menu information.

function Menu() { }
So, in the above snippet you have a constructor function named Menu defined. At present this function doesn't do anything good.

Let's see how to invoke this function

var menu = new Menu();
Let's add some public properties to this function.
function Menu() { this.menuName = &q…
