Hi,

I'm using await in ajax call within async function but still is gives Synctax Error: await is only valid in async function.

What I have tried:

JavaScript
function Function2(){
  //Somelogic
}


async function GetDetails(id) {
    $.ajax({
        url: "/url",
        data: { id: id},
        dataType: "json",
        type: "GET",
        success: function (data) {
           await Function2();
        }
    });

The GetDetails function is marked as async; the AJAX success callback function is not.

Rather than using a callback function, you can simply await the $.ajax function:
JavaScript
async function GetDetails(id) {
    var data = await $.ajax({
        url: "/url",
        data: { id: id },
        dataType: "json",
        type: "GET"
    });
    
    // Do stuff with the returned data here...
}
