overview

This Fifth Edition is completely revised and expanded to cover JavaScript as it is used in today's Web 2.0 applications. This book is both an example-driven programmer's guide and a keep-on-your-desk reference, with new chapters that explain everything you need to know to get the most out of JavaScript, including:



  • Scripted HTTP and Ajax

  • XML processing

  • Client-side graphics using the <canvas> tag

  • Namespaces in JavaScript--essential when writing complex programs

  • Classes, closures, persistence, Flash, and JavaScript embedded in Java applications



Part I explains the core JavaScript language in detail. If you are new to JavaScript, it will teach you the language. If you are already a JavaScript programmer, Part I will sharpen your skills and deepen your understanding of the language.



Part II explains the scripting environment provided by web browsers, with a focus on DOM scripting with unobtrusive JavaScript. The broad and deep coverage of client-side JavaScript is illustrated with many sophisticated examples that demonstrate how to:



  • Generate a table of contents for an HTML document

  • Display DHTML animations

  • Automate form validation

  • Draw dynamic pie charts

  • Make HTML elements draggable

  • Define keyboard shortcuts for web applications

  • Create Ajax-enabled tool tips

  • Use XPath and XSLT on XML documents loaded with Ajax

  • And much more



Part III is a complete reference for core JavaScript. It documents every class, object, constructor, method, function, property, and constant defined by JavaScript 1.5 and ECMAScript version 3.



Part IV is a reference for client-side JavaScript, covering legacy web browser APIs, the standard Level 2 DOM API, and emerging standards such as the XMLHttpRequest object and the <canvas> tag.



More than 300,000 JavaScript programmers around the world have made
this their indispensable reference book for building JavaScript applications.



"A must-have reference for expert JavaScript programmers...well-organized and detailed."
-- Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript
