Description

This is a new kind of JavaScript book. It's not cut'n'paste, it's not a reference, and it's not an exhaustive investigation of the JavaScript language. It is about client-side, web focused, and task-oriented JavaScript. JavaScript is a core skill for web professionals, and as every web professional knows, client-side JavaScript can produce all sorts of glitches and bugs. 'Practical JavaScript for the Usable Web' takes a two pronged approach to learning the JavaScript that you need to get your work done: teaching the core client-side JavaScript that you need to incorporate usable interactivity into your web applications, including many short functional scripts, and building up a complete application with shopping cart functionality. When you have finished working with this book, you'll have a thorough grounding in Client-side JavaScript, and be able to construct your own client-side functionality quickly, easily, and without falling into any of the usability traps that this technology leaves wide open. This book covers: DHTML for IE4 and NN4 browsers, and the Dom for the latest browsers Usability techniques Working scripts that can be incorporated into your web applications immediately Step-by-step breakdown of JavaScript shopping cart functionality Advanced Data Validation Techniques Book Info Covers DHTML for IE4 and NN4 browsers, and the Dom for the latest browsers. Discusses working scripts that can be incorporated into your web applications immediately. Provides advanced data validation techniques. Softcover. From the Publisher This is for readers who are either learning JavaScript from scratch, or who have a little experience - perhaps with DreamWeaver behaviors, or incorporating scripts into their pages. It assumes a though understanding of HTML, and a little CSS experience.
