JavaScript Books

Beginning JavaScript; Paperback

Paul Wilton

Javascript is the only scripting language that runs in all the leading Web browsers, making it an essential part of the Web developer's tool kit. The language itself is not especially difficult to learn, but it becomes more challenging when you include related topics such as HTML forms, dynamic HTML and cross-browser compatibility. Beginning JavaScript, which is suitable for beginning or intermediate programmers, covers all these topics and more to provide a complete Javascript handbook.

Covers

  • language basics,
    • data types,
    • functions,
    • conditions and loops,
    • string handling,
    • programming with objects. The authors explain
  • how to control the Web browser
  • how to combine scripts with forms.
  • how to write scripts that control the content of the page
  • guide to debugging with Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • using cookies to store user preferences.
  • explanation of the DOM (document object model), as specified by the W3C Web standards group
  • Several appendixes offer a language reference and object models for Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator 4.0

Sams Teach Yourself JavaScript in 24

Michael Moncur

Paperback - 397 pages 2nd Ed (31 December, 2000)

JavaScript has become the language no Web developer can do without, mainly because it runs in both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. Sams Teach Yourself JavaScript in 24 Hours explains how to include JavaScript code in Web pages, in order to achieve effects such as rollover buttons, navigation menus, pop-up windows, animated graphics and simple forms. The material is presented in 24 short chapters, each of which concludes with a summary, a quiz and several exercises.

In its fundamentals JavaScript is similar to other programming languages, so early chapters teach essential concepts such as variables, functions, arrays, operators and loops. There is also good coverage of how to control a Web page by programming its DOM (Document Object Model) and responding to events such as button clicks and mouse movements. The author explains that there are incompatibilities between different browsers, and shows how to write code that works in all recent browsers, if necessary by detecting which one is in use. There is also a guide to troubleshooting and handling errors. The most advanced chapters require either Internet Explorer or Netscape 6.0, because of limitations in the DOM presented by Netscape Navigator 4.0. Towards the end, you learn how to create a complete poker game that runs in a browser.

This hands-on guide is ideal for those Web page authors who want to dip a toe into the world of Web scripting. --Tim Anderson

Synopsis
