Get Function Name

This will only return (a string) if the object passed to getFunctionName is a function or an "object" function from IE.
The function does not rely on if present as it can't always be trusted.


getFunctionName(function Foo(){}) == "Foo"
getFunctionName(function(){}) == ""

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. function getFunctionName(func) {
  2. if ( typeof func == "function" || typeof func == "object" )
  3. var fName = (""+func).match(
  4. /function\s*([\w\$]*)\s*\(/
  5. ); if ( fName !== null ) return fName[1];
  6. }
