Bite-Sized Solutions to the Most Common Scripting Problems
After reading thousands of forum threads over the years, author and scripting pioneer Danny Goodman has compiled a list of problems that frequently vex scripters of various experience levels. For every problem he addresses, Goodman not only offers code but a discussion of how and why the solution works. "I wrote fresh code to solve the problems with emphasis on support for Web standards to facilitate forward compatibility with the latest (and next) generations of browsers. The second edition contains almost 20 new recipes, while many of the original ones have been extensively revised and updated to meet the demands of the latest best practices in client-side scripting."
Ideal for novices and experienced scripters alike, this book contains more than 150 recipes for:
- Working with interactive forms and stylesheets
- Presenting user-friendly page navigation
- Creating dynamic content via Document Object Model scripting
- Producing visual effects for stationary content
- Positioning HTML elements
- Working with XML data in the browser
Many recipes from the previous edition have been revised to help you build extensible user interfaces for Web 2.0 applications, and several new recipes provide client-side Ajax solutions. Every recipe is in the book is compatible with the latest W3C standards and browsers, including Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2, Safari, and Opera 9.
