This question already has an answer here:
How do I redirect to another webpage?
To redirect to another page, you can use:
window.location = "http://www.yoururl.com";
It’s better than using
window.location.href = 'http://sidanmor.com';
replace() is better because it does not keep the originating page in the session history, meaning the user won’t get stuck in a never-ending back-button fiasco.
If you want to simulate someone clicking on a link, use
If you want to simulate an HTTP redirect, use
// similar behavior as an HTTP redirect window.location.replace("http://sidanmor.com"); // similar behavior as clicking on a link window.location.href = "http://sidanmor.com";

How to redirect to another page in jQuery?
You can’t redirect to a function. What you can do is pass some flag on the URL when redirecting, then check that flag in the server side code and if raised, execute the function.
document.location = "MyPage.php?action=DoThis";
Then in your PHP code check for “action” in the query string and if equal to “DoThis” execute whatever function you need.
You may need to explain your question a little more.
When you say “redirect”, to most people that suggests changing the location of the HTML page:
window.location = url;
When you say “redirect to function” – it doesn’t really make sense. You can call a function or you can redirect to another page. You can even redirect and have a function called when the new page loads.

// Similar behavior as an HTTP redirect window.location.replace("http://stackoverflow.com"); // Similar behavior as clicking on a link window.location.href = "http://stackoverflow.com";
