JavaScript jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Simple Drawing Application Perform: Part 2

It slid past me the first dozen times I watched this video.

Andrew called his function changeColor() a method. And he explained that this is so because the function was a method on the window object. I just found that fascination. Especially because he pointed out that some people would be pedantic about this particular use of the term. I also found it fascinating cause I actually understood what he meant... little by little, I'm getting there :D

Assuming your code is running in a browser...

Isn't every function a method of the window object?   :wink:

I would have to suppose, that was Andrews point :D
