Hierarchy of objects

Hierarchy of objects

Basics usage of objects

Basics usage of objects

a) With dot (.) – the same as in C++ (preferred way)

b) With usage the table of properties of object, eg:

document[1] – useful with loops

c) With usage of association table:


Expressions operators

Expressions & operators

x=7; // variables doesn’t have type!

str = “Some text";

(bool1 == true) && (bool2 == false);

str = “Some" + " text";

All the operators are identical as in C++/Java.

Control flow statements


Example usage


for(i=1; i<5; i++) {

// expressions

break; }


The same as break.


See break..

for (i in obj) {// expressions}


goto label1;


if(condition) {// expressions if true } else {// expressions if false }


function sum(a,b) {x=a+b; return x;}



while(condition) {//expressions}

do { //expressions } while (condition)


with (document) {

write " Some text ";}

Control flow statements

Events onload and onunload

Events - onload and onUnload

Events are triggered when the user enters or leaves the page.

The onload event is often used to check the visitor's browser type and browser version,

Events are often used to deal with cookies that should be set when a user enters or leaves a page.


<body onload="DoSthonload">

<body onunload="DoSthonunload">

Events onfocus onblur and onchange

Events - onFocus, onBlur and onChange

Events are often used in combination with validation of form fields.


<input type="text" size="30“

id="email" onchange="checkEmail()">;

Events onsubmit

Events - onSubmit

Event is used to validate all form fields before submitting it.


<form method="post" action="xxx.htm"

onsubmit="return checkForm()">

Events onmouseover and onmouseout

Events - onMouseOver and onMouseOut

Events are often used to create "animated" buttons, eg:


<script type=“text/javascript”><!--

function changeImage(i,j) {

document.images[i].src = “image"+j+".gif";


<a href= "doc.htm" onmouseover="changeImage(0,2)" onmouseout="changeImage(0,1)"> <img src=“image1.gif" alt=“image1"/></a>

<a href= "doc.htm" onmouseover="changeImage(1,2)" onmouseout="changeImage(1,1)"> <img src=“image1.gif" alt=“image1"/></a></body></html>
