    Exclamation Function within function within function

    Hmm, maybe this is possible or not but I have tried and failed, what I would like is to be able to do the following:

    Code:
    function Player()
    {
    	this.name = "Bob";
            this.animate= function(direction)
    	{
    		return direction;
                    stop = function() {
                           //code here
                    }
    	} 
    }
    Then I simply want to do the following:

    Code:
    var player = new Player();
    player.animate("left").stop();
    I tried many different ways and the only way I could get it to work is by using:

    Code:
    player.animate.stop();
    I know many will know how to do this but I tried researching and couldn't find any results, thanks if you help...
    Joel.

    everything after return would not be executed, it need to be blocked off with a switch, loop, or if statements. The code you gave in the first block does not do anything by return in the first statement.

    Oh right, though I don't need the return statement, if I remove it... it still doesn't work.

    Code:
    function Player()
    {
    	this.name = "Bob";
            this.animate= function(direction)
    	{
                    this.stop = function() {
                          return 'kawabanga';
                    }
    return this;
    	} 
    }
    then

    Code:
    var player = new Player();
    player.animate("left").stop();
