Defined in proxy:50

A function proxy for methods. By default, JavaScript methods do not maintain scope, so passing a method as a callback will result in the method getting called in the scope of the caller. Using a proxy ensures that the method gets called in the correct scope.

Additional arguments can be passed that will be applied to the function when it is called.


 myObject.addEventListener("event", createjs.proxy(myHandler, this, arg1, arg2));

 function myHandler(arg1, arg2) {
      // This gets called when myObject.myCallback is executed.


  • method Function

    The function to call

  • scope Object

    The scope to call the method name on

  • [arg] Mixed optional
    • Arguments that are appended to the callback for additional params.
