Examples demonstrate how to use built-in JavaScript functions to work with Math, date and time, random numbers, cookies, text strings, and elements of web pages via the Document Object Model (DOM). You will learn how JavaScript is used with HTML submission forms and how JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is used for asynchronous browser-server communication. The book examples provide clear syntax-highlighted code showing how to create behaviours for an HTML document to endow components with interactive functionality, to illustrate each aspect of JavaScript.

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.
