Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fully revised second edition is aimed at the large group of less technical Web authors who know HTML but know nothing about programming. As a simple programming language designed to be used with HTML, JavaScript is the next step in making Web pages more powerful. With JavaScript, even Web page creators without a programming bone in their body can call up pre-cooked Java animations, add clocks and other time-based features to their Web pages, enable their pages to ask questions and gather information from visitors, and provide other interactive features.

Book News Annotation:

Discusses integration of the JavaScript programming language to add interactivity to web pages with scripts for such tasks as navigation, form validation, cookie management, frame creation, and event handling. The fourth edition expands explanations of HTML in the sidebars.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

JavaScript for the World Wide Web, 4th Edition: Visual QuickStart Guide is the perfect book for those who are familiar with HTML and are ready to move up to the next level to add some pizzazz and interactivity to their Web site. Using a task-based, visual step-by-step approach and loads of useful illustrations, readers learn the basics of JavaScript: creating rollovers and frames, validating forms, working with browser windows, adding dynamic elements to your site, and more.

This revised bestseller has been expanded with five new chapters and a new appendix. New material can be found in the following chapters:

  • Forms and Regular Expressions
  • Handling Events
  • Introducing Cascading Style Sheets
  • Applied JavaScript
  • Bookmarklets
  • and a new appendix: Cascading Style Sheets Reference

An exciting new feature of this book is the 16-page color appendix of the JavaScript Object Flowchart and the JavaScript Object Table, all in glorious four-color detail.

Don't want to wear out your fingers by typing in all that code? Check out the supplemental Web site, where you can find all the scripts ready for you to cut and paste into your own work, as well as additional notes, addenda, and updates.
