Best JavaScript Books And Sites

Sep 8, 2006

I recently launched a question answer site that connects people with
problems to those with solutions. We let people with problems pay
solution providers $0.25 for problems in over 100 categories.

As part of our service we let people review past problems and also
provide resources for their own research.

Can anyone tell me (in their opinion)?

Create A Virtual Library - Make A Random Number Of Books Pop Out On Mouse Over?

Jun 7, 2011

I have a background that is a shelf full of books, I wanted to figure out what I would need to do in order to make a random number of books pop out on mouse over (individually), and upon click have the book pulled out and be flipped through and read like a book. Would I have to recreate the library picture completely to make the random books moveable? And would I have to create the books that I want to move from the bookshelf?

how to pull the book out from the book shelf so that it looks like it's coming towards me and then to make it look like it has been pulled out. Would I need to use animation for this? What would be the parts to the animation required?

A little background on my knowledge of javascript: I understand the concepts of it and can understand it when I read it or its explained to me. I am looking to create something as simple as I can, I thought having a background and something basic like a few books be able to pop out. When I realized css couldn't do this and css3 wasn't supported by most browsers I turned to javascript and have been trying to figure out the steps I would need to do to do this specifically.

Dynamically Writing Html/javascript From A Javascript Function

Jul 23, 2005

I'm working on some code and am running into brick walls. I'm trying
to write out Javascript with Javascript and I've read the clj Meta FAQ
and didn't see the answer, read many similar posts (with no luck
though), and searched through the IRT.ORG Faqs
(www.irt.org/script/script.htm).

The Javascript is designed to open an popup window and then inside that
window call another script which will resize that window. There may be
another way around this but the reason I tried this approach initially
was that I wanted to call the onload handler in the popup window to
resize the image only after the image had completely loaded. I've had
some code in the primary Javascript file (showimage.js) before that
works if the image has been cached but on the first load, it doesn't
resize properly which tells me it is probably because it is trying to
resize the window based on the image size but it isn't completely known
at that point. So I removed that code and tried placing the resizing
code in the second Javascript file (resizewindow.js). BTW I've tried
other code to open a popup image and automatically size it ie Q1443 at
irt.org but that doesn't do exactly what we need.

Even if there is another way to do this with one file, I still want to
figure out why this isn't working in case I run into it in the future.

I thought what I would need to do to use document.writeln to write
Javascript would be to escape any special characters and to break
apart the script tag ie

document.writeln('</SCRIPT>');

would become

document.writeln('</SCR' + 'IPT>');

I have a HTML page and 2 Javascript files. All files are in the same
directory and have permissions set correctly.

Here are the 3 files (keep in mind wordwrap has jacked up the
formatting):

index.html
----------
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<SCRIPT type="text/javascript" LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.1"
SRC="showimage.js">
</SCRIPT>
</head>

<body>
Click the house<BR>
<A ONCLICK="newWindow1('house1.jpg','Nice House')"><IMG
SRC="house1thumb.jpg"></A>
</body>
</html>


showimage.js
------------
function newWindow1(pic,sitename)
{

picWindow=window.open('','','width=25,height=25,sc rollbars=1,resizable=1');
picWindow.document.writeln('<html> <head>');
picWindow.document.writeln('<SCR' + 'IPT type="text/javascript"
LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.1" SRC="resizewindow.js"></SCR' + 'IPT>');
picWindow.document.writeln('</head>');
picWindow.document.writeln('<body onload="resizewindow();">');
picWindow.document.writeln('<img src=' + pic + '>');
picWindow.document.writeln('</body> </html>');
picWindow.document.close();
}

resizewindow.js
---------------
function resizewindow()
{
// Do resizing here.
// Right now this isn't being executed
alert("resizing window");
}


Can anyone provide some pointers as to why this javascript is failing?
I'm using IE6 on Win2k and when I click on the image to open the popup
window, it does open the window but it is white with no content and the
system immediately goes from about 4% CPU usage to 100% and
consistently stays there until I kill that window with the task
manager.

DOM Javascript - Imbed Javascript In Dynamically Added Row

Jul 23, 2005

Attached is a simple HTML file that adds and delete rows. In the add
row function I set an attribute "onClick" this triggers the
testMessage() function. When I try this in Firefox it works just fine
however on IE it just refuses to work.

What is interseting is the ROW that already exists has a similar
'onClick' event which works when the page is loaded, but subsequent
"row" additions to the table to not work in IE. Code:

Javascript Function Has No Properties In Javascript Console

May 25, 2005

I'm getting errors in Firefox everytime I try to run this frame resize code, but it works fine in IE. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is with it.

The error is: Error: theFrame has no properties
Line: 8

The line that the javascript console is showing an error for is in italics.

code from page:

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
var defaultCols="100px,*";
var hiddenCols="0px,*";
function ShowHideMenu(){
theFrame = document.getElementById("framed");
if(theFrame.cols == defaultCols) theFrame.cols=hiddenCols;
else theFrame.cols=defaultCols;
}
</script>
<frameset cols="100px,*" name="framed">
<frame src="lframe.htm" name="frameMenu">
<frame src="mframe.htm" name="content">
</frameset>
</head>
<body>
</body></html>

Come someone let me know what I'm doing wrong here?

'Javascript Anthology' Or 'Professional Javascript For Web Developers'?

Mar 30, 2006

I'm already past the basics of Javascript, and i need something that takes me to the other level and teaches me the new technologies and cool stuff (drag&drop, AJAX, OOP in javascript, maybe XUL...etc). So far i found these two books:

1. Sitepoint's "The JavaScript Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks".
2. Worx's "Professional JavaScript for Web Developers (Wrox Professional Guides)"

Both seems to cover very insteresting topics, but i can only buy one of them. So which one do you suggest?

and by the way, i've read the sample chapter 5 of Sitepoint's book, and it seems like the author(s) just put the solutions/codes there and let you figure them out on your own. Is this how the rest of the chapters are?

Nixing Javascript Via Javascript: Pseudoproto?

Jul 23, 2005

This is a question about defensive web browsing. Ocassionally I run into a page whose JavaScript does something that I find obnoxious. I would like to turn off JavaScript only for that page (instead of disabling it globally). It would be cool if there were some way to do this through a "bookmarkable" JavaScript snippet using the javascript: pseudoprotocol. Does anyone know any trick to do any of this?

Extract Links From Javascript (not Using Javascript)?

May 26, 2006

I am looking for a method to extract the links embedded within the
Javascript in a web page: an ActiveX component, or example code in
C++/Pascal/etc. I am looking for a general solution, not one tailored
to a particular page/script.

Hopefully, the problem can be solved without recreating a complete
Javascript interpreter. Any ideas?

AJAX, Eval(), And Javascript Within Javascript

Apr 28, 2006

Ok so, this is my purpose:
- to be able to load asynchronously (via AJAX) some javascript ads (like google's or adbrite) so as to make them be loaded in the background, then update the page after the ads have loaded via innerHTML

Why?
-Because 90% of the time in my newer sites, javascript ads are the major offender in terms of speed of page rendering

My problem:
Via ajax, I can call a php file that retrieves some javascript and outputs it, XMLhttprequest returns those javascript lines, but they don't render in the page, since they miss the whole page loading, and are apparently not parsed
For example, let's say I call a php file via ajax, and it returns the output into a variable named "text" containing "document.write('hello')"
if I use xxx.innerHTML=text, nothing happens

My 1st solution:
Passing those javascript lines to eval() [like eval(text) ], but this produces a second problem, that I couldn't solve (probably because of my lack of knowledge in javascipt):
if I eval the code, it deletes my current page and renders a new one
for example, if I parse a document.write, my page disappears, and a new one is rendered with the document.write text

What I want is basically to make that "document.write" appear inside a div in my page, adding to the content (and not overwriting the whole page), much like what happens when using innerHTML

Is this even possible? How would you go about it?
I tried xxx.innerHTML=eval(outputfromphpfile) but it overwrites my whole page...

JavaScript Withing JavaScript ?

Nov 26, 2000

Just a quickie: is it possible to place javascript within javascript? The following is the code I am using to create a pop-up for a picture gallery. I would like to place a banner from a banner exchange in bold under each photo. When I use the code below I get an error message:

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript>
<!--
function openpic(pic_name) {
myWin= open("", "displayWindow", "width=640,height=510,status=no,toolbar=no,
menubar=no,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,alwaysraised=yes");

myWin.document.open();
myWin.document.write("<html><head><title>" + pic_name + "</title>");
myWin.document.write("</head><BODY><center><TABLE CELLPADDING=&#390;' CELLSPACING=&#390;' WIDTH=Úr'>");
myWin.document.write("<br><img src=kate/image"+ pic_name + ".jpg><br>");
myWin.document.write("<br><br><BR><br><BR><br><BR>");
myWin.document.write("<script language='javascript' type='text/javascript' src='http://www.linkbuddies.com/ad.go?id=134039+2&n=3'></script>");

myWin.document.write("</center></body></html>");

myWin.document.close();
}

//-->
</SCRIPT>

Javascript Inside Javascript

Dec 12, 2005

Basically, on one of my sites I'm running adsense and today I added Chitika. The problem is, I can't run those type of ads through my banner advertising program.

The banner advertising program calls the banners/HTML from code like this:

<script language=JavaScript src=http://www.mysite.com/advertise/abm.asp?z=1></script>

And using that program I'm able to either choose a banner or HTML I want to display when that code above is used. It displays HTML ok... but when I try to run an ad of either adsense or chitika nothing displays on the page. The code that would be called is:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
*Chicika code in here*
//--></script>
<script src="http://xxx/xxx/mm.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>

So... it looks like I can't have javascript call another javascript to display on a page. My question is then... how can I edit the above to make it work or how can I work around this problem? I'd really want this to work with Chitika and not so much with adsense... but it appears both Chitika and Adsense use similar javascript code.
