The Book of JavaScript: A Practical Guide to Interactive Web Pages Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Book of JavaScript teaches readers how to add interactivity, animation, and other tricks to their web sites with JavaScript. Rather than provide a series of cut-and-paste scripts, thau! takes the reader through a series of real world JavaScript code with an emphasis on understanding. Each chapter focuses on a few important JavaScript features, shows how professional web sites incorporate them, and takes readers through examples of how they might add those features to their own web sites. This thoroughly updated 2nd edition includes new chapters on Ajax, revised appendices, and new examples throughout. Summary sections and assignments close each chapter, making the book perfect for use in college courses or independent study. CD includes code and images for every example, answers to assignments, script libraries for hard-to-program applications, and many useful software programs.

Book News Annotation:

Updated to include all things new, this edition includes comprehensive coverage of asynchronous JavaScript and SML (Ajax) and a complete reference to all JavaScript objects and functions, including data on properties, methods, handlers and browser compatibility. Master practitioner and trainer Thau describes using variables and built-in functions for automatic updates for web pages, working with browsers and rollovers, opening and manipulating browser windows, writing your own functions, using forms to provide and receive information, keeping track with arrays and loops, timing events, using frames and image maps, validating forms, massaging strings, working with server-side programs, saving visitor information with cookies, using dynamic HTML, handling XML in JavaScript and Ajax and server-side Ajax, integrating through shared to-do lists, and debugging. He provides answers to the assignments embedded in the text, and resources along with code for applications.
