Hi ,

Would appreciate if an expert could explain the use of the this keyword. In Jefry’s video tutorial 15-Part 2, a part of the source code is as below

var Verify_Loaded_Css = { init : function() { $(‘ ‘).appendTo(‘body’); } , check : function(runCallback){ if ($(’#test’).width() == 2) runCallback(); else setTimeout( function() { Verify_Loaded_Css.check(runCallback) } , 300 ); } };

My query is about usage of the this keyword. Why is the code writen as :

Verify_Loaded_Css.check(runCallback)

Since it is referring to itself, shouldn’t it be writen as below?

this.check(runCallback)
Hoping for enlightenment from a real coder.

Oops, so sorry about the unintended smileys and sentence structure. I hope other readers get what I mean. I was looking for a preview button to preview my post but couldn’t find one. Again, my apologies.
