Is there a way to fire an extension UID from a different extension?

Rookie Contributor

for cleanup purposes, I have different event triggers that I want to fire off a javascript function.  Is the best way to create a javascript extension and store the this function as a global function, or is there a way that you can tell Telium to fire off an extension UID?

@jeffrey_gruver You can define your function in a JavaScript Code Extension scoped to Pre Loader (this code is globally scoped in the window), then your event triggers can call that function. Extensions are not intended to be executed directly by UID (like Tags are), but through the convenience of extension scopes and global namespacing, you can easily create a global function using this approach.

Thank you Justin.  That is what I was thinking, was just hoping that there was a possible different option :)
