Chapter 17. Advanced Dynamic Techniques


In Chapter 16, you learned about the basic building blocks for creating a dynamic Web site. These include relatively simple tasks, such as changing an object's position and visibility. Now, it is time to combine those techniques to not only change objects spatially, but also add a temporal element so that objects change over time. This process lets you animate objects and enables users to interact more extensively with the objects.

In this chapter we'll look at ways to do the following:

  • Loop functions to continue running at specific intervals

  • Make objects appear to move fluidly around the window

  • Use form input to make dynamic changes

  • Allow the visitor to move objects around on the page

  • Create objects that appear to follow the mouse pointer around the screen

We'll also look at how to make changes to the browser window so that it is located exactly where you need it while you're working.
