re: There's the industry-standard Javascript hack… var that = this;
 

I sometimes encounter var self = this; too, kind of annoying. I prefer to use myFunction() { /* much stuff, very algorithm */}.bind(this) if I am in an event handler for example, much natural to work with this even if the bind is a bit ugly!

 

haha "much stuff, very algorithm" :)

Thankfully I don't need to deal with this very often at this point, but I agree with you. I'll keep this style in mind and try to remember to use it whenever I encounter it again!
