Default dynamic function


I have this function that triggers a timer... but when the timer is done I want it to trigger different functions depending on the arguments created... So say that when the timer is first initialized, I store the name of the function that I want to be executed in a variable... now when the timer is done, I want it to execute that function...

So were I to use the new function argument... how do I actually trigger the thing? Or does someone have a better suggestion?

Thank you,

Your question is too vague without any example code but to call a function based on its name you can use:
or if you are using setTimeout:
setTimeout("myFunction", 1000);
