Javascript newbie stuck with XMLHttpRequest return data

I think the issue was by ths following , XMLHttpRequest requires you to add an event listener and wait for the load event. This will tell you once the request has completed and then you can do something with the response.
Take a look at this website for a more detailed description: https://javascript.info/xmlhttprequest

will be helpful for those in need Make sure that you have form_for [@ingredient, @unit_conversion] in your form.
<% title "New Unit Conversion" %>
<%= render :partial => 'form' %>
<p><%= link_to "Back to List", ingredient_unit_conversions_path(@ingredient) %></p>
<% form_for [@ingredient, @unit_conversion] do |f| %>
  <%= f.error_messages %>
  ... fields here
  <p><%= f.submit "Submit" %></p>
<% end %>

Javascript: xmlhttprequest randomly stuck at Ready State 1

To fix this issue Well it looks like I figured it out. I had a feeling it was an unresolved request, since it only happens when instances of it are closed (meaning that if one of them is closed while in communication with the server it stays in communication forever and no one else can access the server) and it appears that is the case. I made some modifications to the code in multiple areas and basically what it comes down to is when the gadget closes it makes sure to abort all of the requests. The requests are now instance variables (to allow for the aborting of them), but are still made new everytime they are needed.

AJAX - Order of commands with XMLHttpRequest (Newbie)

Hope that helps Because onreadystatechange is an event, and that code won't get invoked until the ready state changes, which will occur at some point in the future when the request is complete.

Javascript : return XMLHttpRequest out of scope

it fixes the issue Well, since you are using jQuery tag, I think my answer could be valid and I prefer doing this way for what you need and I understood (it is well explained so please read code comments and check browser console, this can be found at the end of the answer).
Remember that you won't be able to return a XMLHttpRequest because ajax calls are async but you can force an ajax call to be sync in order to get your data on a return statement from any function or do other things as you expected. However, forcing is not a good approach to do because UI will freeze for the user until getting the response back from server and you really don't know how much time that will take (specially if you are expecting a big amount of data to be returned - I know that's not entirely a metric but other factors may apply).
<div id="wrapper">
    <div id="loader"></div>
    <div id="content"></div>
$(function() {

    var series = [], // Your series array
        loader = $('#loader'), // UI loader sample
        request = {}; // Request params

     * Set request method, url and data if needed
     * In this case I am sending an object with a text property
     * that will be returned from jsfiddle "echo" service
    request.method = 'GET';
    request.url = '/echo/jsonp/';
    request.data = {
        text: 'Second message returned from "echo" service'

    // Send ajax call
    retrieveData(request, series, handleData);

    // Set loading message to UI

    // Just do some logging to know how process goes
    console.log('Populating series for the first time');

     * Populate series for the first time, at this point process
     * will go on and after the response from server was finally
     * done, process will go to the callback (since ajax calls 
     * are async).

    // Just do some logging to know how process goes
    console.log('End populating series for the first time');

function populate(series) {
    var dummy = {
        text: 'First message populated over process'

    // Set dummy object to series array

 * Used to make ajax call and return data from server
function retrieveData(cfg, series, callback) {
        type: cfg.method,
        url: cfg.url,
        data: cfg.data
     }).done(function(data, status, xhr) {
        // Pass args to callback function if defined
        if (callback) callback(series, data);
     }).fail(function(xhr, status) {
         * Pass args to callback function if defined
         * At this point, request wasn't success so 
         * force data arg at callback to be 'null'
        if (callback) callback(series, null);

 * Used to handle data returned from server
 * Note: Your series array can be modified here since you
 * passed it into the callback
function handleData(series, data) {
    var loader = $('#loader');

    // Just do some logging to know how process goes
    console.log('Populating series from server');

    // Check if data is defined and not an empty object
    if(data && !($.isEmptyObject(data))) {
        // Add it to series array

    // Set UI loader empty

    // Retrieve series

function showData(series) {
    var contentDiv = $('#content');

    // Loop process and append to UI
    for(var i = 0; i < series.length; ++i) {
        contentDiv.append(series[i].text + '<br>');

Javascript return after XMLHTTPRequest()

Tag : javascript , By : Florian D.

hope this fix your issue This is the programming paradigm that every new javascript developer has to deal with.
Because of the asynchronous nature of javascript, functions tend not to pass values back via return statements, but instead the values are passed back via callback methods.
function something(url) {
     getPage(url, function(temp) {

function getPage(url, callback) {
     var x = new XMLHTTPRequest();
     x.onload = function() {
          var html = x.responseText;
          var variable = SOMETHING PARSED FROM HTML
     x.open("GET", url);
