JavaScripts

JavaScript is an very simple programming language which can be embedded into HTML documents.It allows content on the Internet to become executable on the "client-side" (your computer, not the host) via your browser. The scripts are intermixed with the Web content. Among the many things JavaScript will let you do is: a. Control the function of your browser (create popup windows, message bars)b. Control the content and appearance of your HTML Web pages.c. Interact with the user graphically and functionally. These scripts can trigger and kind of action in response to the user.d. Perform computations and read and write 'cookies'.

While we dont offer a lesson on JAVA Scripting, we intend to supply you with some JavaScript extensions to normal HTML tags and how they may be used in your HTML documents.JavaScript needs to be embedded before the <body> tag of your HTML document. You may download a copy (in HTML format) of the JavaScript that you see in each category by clicking on the blue title of each script.




Status Bar Messages
JavaScript HTML extensions: STATUS BAR MESSAGES
Status Bar Messages: Put your mouse over both the below links, don't click them just look at the status bar at the bottom of the window.                                             
Home Page | Home Page

The one on the right just displays the normal address but the one on the left displays

'Go Back To My Home Page'.

It is done by


<A HREF="../index.htm" ONMOUSEOVER="window.status='Go Back To My home Page' ;
return true">Home Page</A> 



Mouseovers
A 'mouseover' is a JAVA Script which allows the HTML document to change
when the user runs his mouse over the image on the screen. Mouseovers
are useful to create a button that lights up when you run your mouse
pointer over it. Boldface is used to indicate images the programmer
would use.

Insert the Java Script before the HTML </HEAD> tag

<!-- HIDE

if (document.images) {
var buttonon = new Image()
buttonon.src = "
directory name/buttonon.gif" <-your 'lit' button here
var button = new Image()
button.src = "
directory name/button.gif" <-your 'unlit' regular button here

var serviceson = new Image()
serviceson.src = "
directory name/serviceson.gif"
var services = new Image()
services.src = "
directory name/services.gif"

var contactuson = new Image()
contactuson.src = "
directory name/contactuson.gif"
var contactus = new Image()
contactus.src = "
directory name/contactus.gif"

}

var isMenuAct = false;

function actMenuItem(img1) {
isMenuAct = true
act (img1)
}

function inactMenuItem(img1) {
isMenuAct = false
if (document.images) {
inact(img1)

}
}

function act(imgName) {
if (document.images)
document[imgName].src = eval(imgName + 'on.src')
}

function inact (imgName) {
if (document.images)
document[imgName].src = eval(imgName + '.src')
}

// -->



NEXT, THE HTML DOCUMENT USES THE ONCLICK,ONMOUSEOVER,ONMOUSEOFF
COMMAND TO EXECUTE THE JAVASCRIPT WHEN THE USER RUNS HIS/HER
MOUSE OVER THE IMAGE.


<HEAD>
<TITLE>Untitled Document</TITLE>
<META NAME=GENERATOR CONTENT="Claris Home Page 3.0">

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"></SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY BACKGROUND="background.jpg">
<P>


IT CAN BE OUTSIDE A LINK:

onmouseover="actMenuItem('home')"
onmouseout="inactMenuItem('home')">
<IMG SRC="
directory name/button.gif"
ALT="Button" WIDTH=110 HEIGHT=38 BORDER=0
ALIGN=bottom name=button naturalsizeflag=3><BR>


OR INSIDE A LINK:

Marquees
This Marquee scroller will load automatically and appear on the browser
window upon entering the Web page.

Insert the Java Script before the HTML </HEAD> tag

onload="scroller_m4()">
<P>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
var timeID = 0
var Count = 0;
var Total_count=1
var m1 = " "
var m2 = "READY.....SET......GO!.....THEY'RE OFF!...."
var m3 = " "
var Text = m1+m2+m3
function scroller_m4() {
window.status = Text.substring (Count, Text.length) + Text.substring (0, Count)
if (Count < Text.length)
Count++;
else if (Count == Text.length) {
Total_count++;
Count=0;
}
else
Count=0;
if (Total_count != 100) setTimeout("scroller_m4()", 68)
}
function delay() {
clearTimeout()
}
// -->




Audio Mouseovers with the Beatnik Plugin
Insert the Java Script before the HTML </HEAD> tag


SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
<!-- HIDE

function startGroovoid (groovoidName) {
if (document.groovoidPlugin != null) {
document.groovoidPlugin.play(false,'groovoid://' + groovoidName);
}
}

function stopGroovoid () {
if (document.groovoidPlugin != null) {
document.groovoidPlugin.stop (true);
}
}

// -->
</SCRIPT>

<A HREF="bannerworks.html" TARGET=frame1
onclick="startGroovoid('UI-chimes')"
<-- UI-chimes **see below
onmouseover="actMenuItem('anypicture')"
onmouseout="inactMenuItem('anypicture')">
<IMG SRC="anypicture.gif" WIDTH=147 HEIGHT=119 BORDER=0 ALIGN=bottom name=topa></A>

EMBED the beatnik plug-in info in your HTML document.

(Techno.rmf, UI-Chimes are audio files which can be found at the
headspace.com/beatnik website or may come pre-installed in the
Beatnik plug-in. There are many other audio files to choose from.)



Factorial Tables
This Java Script generates a table of factorials:

<script language="JavaScript">;
document.write("<h2>Table of Factorials</h2>");
for (i=1, fact = 1; i < 10; i++, fact *= i) {
document.write(i + "! = " + fact);
document.write("<br>");
}
</script>
</body>
</html>

Alert Function
<form
<input type="button"
value="Click here"
onClick="alert('You clicked the button')">
</form>

the alert function called causes a dialog box to be displayed.
