Destroy a Model on the server.

model.destroy([success[, error]])


  1. success {function()}Optional

    A callback to call on successful destruction. The callback receives the can.Model as it was just prior to destruction.

  2. error {function()}Optional

    A callback to call when an error occurs. The callback receives the XmlHttpRequest object.



A Deferred that resolves to the Model as it was before destruction.

Destroys the instance by calling destroy with the id of the instance.

recipe.destroy(success, error);

This triggers "destroyed" events on the instance and the Model constructor function which can be listened to with bind and bind.

Recipe = can.Model.extend({
 destroy : "DELETE /services/recipes/{id}",
 findOne : "/services/recipes/{id}"

Recipe.bind("destroyed", function(){
 console.log("a recipe destroyed");

// get a recipe
Recipe.findOne({id: 5}, function(recipe){
 recipe.bind("destroyed", function(){
   console.log("this recipe destroyed")
