Name Java Method---invoke a method of a JavaScript object


Part of the netscape.javascript package included with Navigator 3.0


public Object call(String methodName, Object args[])



The name of the JavaScript method to be invoked.


An array of Java object to be passed as arguments to the method.


A Java Object that represents the return value of the JavaScript method.


The call() method of the Java JSObject class invokes a named method of the JavaScript object represented by the JSObject. Arguments are passed to the method as an array of Java objects, and the return value of the JavaScript method is returned as a Java object. Chapter 19, LiveConnect: JavaScript and Java describes the data conversion performed to convert the method arguments from Java objects to JavaScript values and to convert the method return value from a JavaScript value to a Java object.
