How to pass a function as parameter in JavaScript ?

We can pass a function as a parameter to another function as named variable and sometimes as parameters.

Below is a sample code snippet demonstrating the passing of function as parameter in JavaScript.

<script type="text/javascript">       
    function MainFunction(param1, param2, param3) {
        // param1 is the name of the function
        param1(param2, param3); 
        
    }
    var param = function(param1, param2) {
         alert(param1 + " " + param2);
    };

    // Calling the main function
    MainFunction(param, "Welcome to ", "Abundantcode.com");
