support for error and timeout in JSONP calls
|Reported by:||tr4nslator||Owned by:|
As discussed in this thread, jQuery would benefit significantly from the addition of timeout and error handlers for JSONP calls, helping to close the functionality gap XHR calls.
Such support could be added by:
- using setTimeout before the script is injected to call the error function when the timeout time elapses,
- using clearTimeout when the script is successfully executed to remove the above call, and
- using the onerror handler for the script, to call the error function in the event that the script returns a non-200 response (and therefore is not executed).
Also, it would help if the injected script was returned by $.ajax for further manipulation, just as the XHR object is returned for XMLHttpRequest calls.
