/* The reason is that 'height' is a function, so assigning it as is to a variable will store the reference of the function itself... to call a function, you need to append a parenthesis pair after its name, so the function is executed, and the returned value is stored in the variable ^^ */ function myfunction() { return 42; } var a = myfunction; alert(a); // show the function source code, because a hold the function itself, and default cast to string will show its code var b = myfunction(); alert(b); // output 42 // but with 'a', since you've assigned to it a function reference, you can now do: var c = a(); alert(c); // output 42 // or shorter: alert(a()); // output 42
