As you can see, to create elements, we use the same techniques and knowledge — text dbtml are children of the element node, we append a child with node.

Finally, the page also contains images: We’ll review the code wweb, then see a demonstration before we get to the explanation. The ascendDOM function is called quite often in the code, so you can see the benefit of putting that code into a function.

Although this means more code, notice how it keeps the HTML content clean and simple. If you want to look good, you need to learn how to dress up and go to the gym regularly!

This is actually quite an ugly solution, as it will overwrite any onclick event handler that another script may have installed. The full-sized image should move nine times as fast as desigb cursor.

A CSS property that was named:. In such cases, the browser gets it wrong. Processing happens as follows. For example, the HTML of the page contains two tables, one with a class of extra.

In practice, what this means is that you have a small number of standard functions and techniques that you use to carry out event handling actions. The browser software captures the user action and sends the event to the right event target.


When a key is pressed, our function will pop up utopiaa dialog box to tell us so. This isn’t a good approach to use. Instead, the approach taken is to use one of the getElementsBy Whatever methods to grab a particular part of the tree directly.

In this case, it attaches the handleLink function as a click event listener for each link, so that when a link is clicked, that function will be called. This allows us to put browser objects in all scripts, and use them only when our detection code gets around to it: This allows event handlers to be attached to page elements without polluting your HTML code with dozens of inline event handlers.

This returns a copy of the node, including all uwing attributes and all its children. As we move, we want new areas of the big image to come into view. While it can be a lot of work, many CSS bugs only become apparent with the complex use of this technology; most CSS is handled perfectly across platforms and browsers without the need for hacks or complex tests.

Being able to change the display properties of existing elements, and to read and alter the attributes of those elements, puts a lot of power at your disposal, but the ability to dynamically create or remove parts of a page requires us to leverage a whole new set of techniques.

Note that we use the String. If the if statement test passes, we know that the browser supports the feature in question.

There is simply no one book that looks at each of the client and server technologies to create a website template engine to use over and over. Our code includes the now-familiar addEvent function to carry out cross-browser event hookups. If you have worked in other languages, you may recognize that this means that functions are first-class objects in JavaScript; we can pass around references to a function using its name, but without calling it.


We’ll describe what’s going on here in a moment.

The text of the link, which read “SitePoint” before, has not changed; if we need to alter that, we have to do so separately. The ill-fated “browser wars” were all about these proprietary extensions to the Web, as each manufacturer strove to attract more developers to its platform through the lure of new features. As you can see, the a element, which is javascirpt inside the p element in the HTML, becomes a child nodeor just childof the p node in the DOM tree.

Lots of Websites contain photo galleries: To see that document, you can either display it in the browser window, or you can look at the HTML source. This is a different type of check from the method we used before, though: This method clones all attributes of the node and all its child nodes, including IDs, and IDs must be unique within your document.

So, to hide an element from display, we can set its display property to none:. This is the cross-browser approach to identifying which link was clicked; we check for a window. However, there are occasions when different browsers implement the same properties in this case, clientX and clientY in different ways and when there are no other objects available for sniffing that can us tell which of the different implementations is in use.
