Using abort() function to abort ajax request

Explanation

In the above JS code:

  • Lines 2–7: We use the ajax method to sent an AJAX request to this URL using the jQuery. Once the request is completed, the success callback function will be executed.
  • Lines 9–17: We send another AJAX request for the same URL using the ajax method and assign the AJAX request reference to a variable with the name XHRToBeAborted.
  • Line 21: We use the abort() method of the XHRToBeAborted variable. This will abort the send request and execute the error callback. Inside the error callback, we print the error message.
