    Howdy all! I'm working on a LiveJournal app, and I'm trying to get an HTML page with Ajax. Request using the following syntax:

        var gFS = this.getFriendsSuccess;
        var gFF = this.getFriendsFailure;
        var request = new Ajax.Request('<a url goes here>', {
            method: 'get',
            requestHeaders: {Cookie: 'ljsession=' + ljsession},
            evalJS: false,
            evalJSON: false,
            onSuccess: gFS,
            onFailure: gFF
    (URL removed because I can't post links...)

    Unfortunately, my callback functions (getFriendsSuccess and getFriendsFailure) never get called, even though I can see in wireshark that the request is sent and I get a good response back.

    Is this a problem because I'm trying to do a cross-domain request or something? Is there a way to avoid this?

    Done some searching but apparently I don't have the right terms...any help would be greatly appreciated!

    this.getFriendsSuccess is a function, and the first thing it does is to print a log message, which never happens. (I tried the gFS=this.getFriendsSuccess because I thought passing this.getFriendsSuccess directly in might be a problem...)

    Try using:

    onSuccess: function(transport){
    /* STUFF HERE */
    onFailure... etc, etc

  6.    #6 turns out I was calling in the getFriendsSuccess() function instead of I must be tired. After making that change, it works as expected.

    Thanks all!
