    API

    getBoundFunc(context, func)

    Creates a new bound function of func that is bound to context and caches the result. If getBoundFunc has already been called for the given context and func, then the cached bound function is returned.

    Parameters

    • context (*) The context of the returned bound function (I.E. context will equal this within the scope of the bound function).
    • func (Function) The function to be bound.

    Returns

    A version of func that is bound to context.

    Type: Function


    deleteBoundFunc(context)

    Clears from memory all cached bound functions for the given context.

    NOTE: It is not always required to use this function to clear cached bound functions. Behind the scenes, WeakMaps are used to store the cached bound functions, therefore, whenever all other references to the context object have been removed, the context's corresponding bound functions in the cache will automatically be cleared for you. However, this function has been made available in the case that you want to manually clear the cache so that memory is freed up sooner, or in instances where the context will not be garbage collected.

    For more information, refer to the MDN documentation on WeakMap.

    Parameters

    • context (*) The context of the bound functions that will be removed from memory.
