The Book of JavaScript, 2nd Edition: A Practical Guide to Interactive Web Pages

About the eBook

JavaScript makes it easy to add interactivity, animation, and other tricks to your web pages. But this isn't just a book of JavaScripts for you to cut and paste into your HTML, only to find out that nothing works as you'd expected. Using real-world examples as the starting point, author thau! walks you step-by-step through various scripts and explains how they produce the effects you want.

Because no discussion of JavaScript today is complete without coverage of Ajax Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), this thoroughly updated second edition includes new chapters on Ajax to get you up to speed with this valuable method for creating truly dynamic web pages.

You'll also find revised appendices and new examples that reflect today's web environment. Learn to:
– Work with frames, forms, cookies, and alarms
– Use events to react to a user's actions
– Perform image swaps and rollovers
– Program your own functions to produce customized solutions
– Store user preferences and build a shopping cart
– Use Ajax to turn web pages into applications

If you need to spruce up tired-looking pages, The Book of JavaScript, 2nd Edition will help take your site from bland to brilliant.

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