Overview

This isn't just a book of scripts for you to cut and paste into your HTML, only to find out that nothing works. The Book of JavaScript will teach you how to use JavaScript to quickly add interactivity, animation and other tricks to your Web pages—on your own and without cut-and-paste solutions. Using real-world examples as a starting point, wild-man thau! shows you, step-by- step, how various scripts work and how to use them to produce the effects you want. Learn how to:

  • Work with frames, forms, cookies, and alarms
  • Use events to have your pages to react to a user's actions
  • Perform image swaps and roll-overs
  • Program your own JavaScript functions to produce customized solutions
  • Use windows to make a remote control or a picture frame
  • Store user preferences with cookies and build a shopping cart
  • Use Dynamic HTML to turn web pages into multimedia applications

BONUS: Includes a complete reference to all JavaScript objects and functions, including examples, properties, methods, handlers, and browser compatibility!

The CD-ROM includes code and images for every example in the book (including the real-world ones), answers to the assignments, script libraries for hard-to-program applications, and many useful software programs.
