About the book

JavaScript in easy steps, now in its 5th edition, instructs the user how to create exciting web pages that employ the power of JavaScript to provide functionality.  You need have no previous knowledge of any scripting language so it's ideal for the newcomer to JavaScript. By the end of this book you will have gained a sound understanding of JavaScript and be able to add exciting dynamic scripts to your own web pages.

JavaScript in easy steps begins by explaining how to easily incorporate JavaScript code in an HTML document. Examples demonstrate how to use built-in JavaScript functions to work with Math, date and time, random numbers, cookies, text strings, and components of document content. You will learn how to create effects, such as an automated slide show, learn how JavaScript is used with HTML submission forms, and how to develop Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) using the latest techniques employing Asynchronous JavaScript And XML (AJAX).  The book examples provide clear syntax-highlighted code showing how to create behaviors for an HTML document to endow components with interactive functionality, to illustrate each aspect of JavaScript.

JavaScript in easy steps has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to anyone who wants to add functionality to their web pages. It will appeal to programmers who want to quickly add JavaScript to their skills set, and to the student who is studying website design at school or college, and to those seeking a career in web development who need an understanding of client-side scripting.
