Part IV. Client-Side JavaScript Reference

This part of the book is a reference to client-side JavaScript. It includes entries for important client-side JavaScript object such as Window, Document, Element, Event, XMLHttpRequest, Storage, Canvas, and File. There is also an entry for the jQuery library. The entries are arranged alphabetically by object name and each entry includes a complete list of the constants, properties, methods and event handlers supported by that object.

Previous editions of this book included a separate reference entry for each method, but in this edition, the reference material is made more compact (without omitting details) by including the method descriptions directly in the parent entry.
