The reasoning for that will soon become apparent. That was an example of a successful job completion, a “fulfilled promise”.

  • The first promise in the chain is most deeply nested and is the first to pop.
  • In the example above, only the first one to resolve will be called and the rest will be ignored.
  • Promise.resolve Returns a new Promise object that is resolved with the given value.
  • Output of the promise chain callIn case there is an error or a promise rejection, the .catch method in the chain will be called.
  • It calls an API to get your nearby pizza shop’s id.
  • Promise returning functions should generally guarantee that they should not throw synchronously since they might throw asynchronously.

@Lancer.Yan Not really, what B is indicating is that the behavior of return changes depending on the settled value of the Promise. When writing the code you don’t really know if it will resolve or reject.

The executor function takes two arguments, resolve and reject. These are the callbacks provided by the JavaScript language. Your logic goes inside the executor function that runs automatically when a new Promise is created. Promise.prototype.finally() Appends a handler to the promise, and returns a new promise that is resolved when the original promise is resolved. The handler is called when the promise is settled, whether fulfilled or rejected. The rule is that if a function is inside, the handler returns the value, and the promise resolves/rejects that value.

Add a catch after the offending then to handle this properly. Response also has a json() method, which returns a promise that will resolve with the content of the body processed and transformed into JSON. Once a promise has been called, it will start in a pending state. This means that the calling function continues executing, while the promise is pending until it resolves, giving the calling function whatever data was being requested. Please note that in this task resolve is called without arguments. We don’t return any value from delay, just ensure the delay.

Example of chaining promises

Here we use a callback for each of the API calls. This leads us to use another callback inside the previous, and so on. Let’s have a close look at the orderPizza function in the above code. If it’s available, it detects what kind of beverages we get for free along with the pizza, and finally, it places the order.

  • In the above case we just returned a string, but it could be an object, or null as well.
  • If you need to synchronize different promises, Promise.all() helps you define a list of promises, and execute something when they are all resolved.
  • The promise is resolved with the given value, or the promise passed as the value if the value was a promise object.
  • A finally handler also shouldn’t return anything.
  • The Fetch API is a promise-based mechanism, and calling fetch() is equivalent to defining our own promise using new Promise().

This promise will have the state as pending and result as undefined. It allows us to call the next .then method on the new promise. Usually, the .then() method should be called from the consumer function where you would like to know the outcome of a promise’s execution. Successful call completions are indicated by the resolve function call, and errors are indicated by the reject function call. The fulfillment of the promise is logged, via a fulfill callback set using p1.then().

The Promise.race() method

3) When the x is the pending Promise, return x will return a pending Promise, which will be evaluated later. You are not limited to using fetch of course, any promise can be used in this fashion. It’s unlikely that in modern JavaScript you’ll find yourself not using promises, so let’s start diving right into them.

While callbacks are helpful, there is a huge downside to them as well. At times, we may have one callback inside another callback that’s in yet another callback and so on. Let’s understand this “callback hell” with an example. If the value has a “then” attached to the promise, then the returned promise will follow that “then” to till the final state. // successMessage is whatever we passed in the resolve(…) function above. Generally, if you don’t know if a value is a promise or not, Promise.resolve it instead and work with the return value as a promise.

JavaScript Promise Tutorial – How to Resolve or Reject Promises in JS

When the first .then method returns a value, the next .then method can receive that. The second one can now pass to the third .then() and so on. This forms a chain of .then methods to pass the promises down. Promise.any Takes an iterable of Promise objects and, as soon as one of the promises in the iterable fulfills, returns a single promise that fulfills with the value from that promise. A settings object is an environment that provides additional information when JavaScript code is running. This includes the realm and module map, as well as HTML specific information such as the origin.

javascript promise resolve

‘Resolve’ will set the promise as fullfilled but continue execution if there are more statements below. It performs the call asynchronously after all synchronous code has happened but before any I/O happens. In your first example, you return “bbb” in the first then() handler, so “bbb” is passed into the next then() handler. This treatment of thenables allows promise implementations to interoperate, as long as they expose a Promises/A+-compliant then method. It also allows Promises/A+ implementations to “assimilate” nonconformant implementations with reasonable then methods.

Promise.reject Returns a new Promise object that is rejected with the given reason. Promise.allSettled Wait until all promises have settled . A promise can participate in more than one nesting. For the following code, the transition of promiseA into a “settled” state will cause both instances of .then() to be invoked. To learn about the way promises work and how you can use them, we advise you to read Using promises first.

  • Returns a Promise that fulfills after all of the given promises is either fulfilled or rejected, with an array of objects that each describe the outcome of each promise.
  • In that case, the action will be performed at the first asynchronous opportunity.
  • When anything in the chain of promises fails and raises an error or rejects the promise, the control goes to the nearest catch() statement down the chain.
  • In this case, it is very much hard-coded but serves the same purpose.
  • If the singer has already released their song and then a person signs up on the subscription list, they probably won’t receive that song.

Returning a promise from an onFulfilled() handler kicks off promise resolution. There is no point it’s the same as Promise.resolve in 99.99% of cases.

Let’s look at a couple of examples of handling results and errors using the .then and .catch handlers. We will make this learning a bit more fun with a few real asynchronous requests. We will use the PokeAPI to get information about Pokémon and resolve/reject them using Promises.
