Product description

From Amazon

When Peachpit Press released the debut edition of JavaScript for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide, it immediately became one of the most useful tools for busy Web developers. Now in its fourth edition, this book has been improved, expanded, and more finely tuned. Written for Web coders who have at least some familiarity with HTML, the book doesn't necessarily require you to have knowledge of JavaScript programming or scripting. The presentation is illustrative and productive, and concepts are introduced via practical examples, explained briefly, presented in code, and then explained line by line. Using judicious screen shots and new code highlighted in red, the authors have made JavaScriptquite intuitive. In this new edition, they point out features compatible with only certain Web browsers using new IE and Netscape icons. Along with its core content, the text includes an excellent genealogy of the various flavours of JavaScript, complete with an extensive object flowchart that is colour coded by browser version. It also steps outside the base language with a chapter on visual development tools that use JavaScript, such as Dreamweaver, GoLive, and Fireworks. There are tons of useful scripts in the book, and the publisher provides a companion Web where you can get each script, as well as an interface for viewing the code in action. You can download all of the scripts in a single ZIP file. This is simply a must-have guide to JavaScript. --Stephen W Plain

Topics covered:Browser detection, Rollovers, Cycling banners, Frames, Windows, Form validations, Regular expressions, Date and time display, Event handling, Cookies, Cascading style sheets (CSS), DHTML, User interface design, Bookmarklets, Visual development tools, Debugging, Genealogy and reference.

From the Back Cover

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.
