MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

XDomainRequest.ontimeout

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

An event handler which is called when a pending XDomainRequest times out.

Syntax

xdr.ontimeout = funcRef;

Parameters

funcRef
A function to be called when the event times out.

Example

var xdr = new XDomainRequest();
xdr.open("POST", "http://example.com/api/method");

xdr.ontimeout = function(){
  //Handle timeout
}

xdr.onload = function(){ 
  //Handle Response with xdr.responseText 
} 

xdr.send("param1=value1&param2=value2");
