About this product

Synopsis
* Most JavaScript books are very long-winded, boring, and developer-oriented – this one provides a quick and easy reference for those who are not code experts, but want to quickly learn and take advantage of JavaScript/DOM to add cool functionality to their web sites. * Shows readers how to build several real world projects. * All examples are fiercely standards compliant and up-to-date. Foundation JavaScript and DOM for Web Designers gives you everything you need to start using JavaScript and the Document Object Model to enhance your web pages with client-side dynamic effects. He book starts off by giving you a basic crash course in JavaScript and the DOM, then move on to provide you with several real world examples built up from scratch including dynamic image galleries and dynamic menus, and show you how to manipulate web page style using the CSS DOM, and create markup on the fly. This book deals with a programming language, but it isn t intended for programmers. This is a book for web designers. Specifically, this book is intended for standards-aware designers who are comfortable using CSS and XHTML. If that sounds like you, read on… This book is made up of equal parts code and concepts. Don t be frightened by the code: I know it might look intimidating at first, but once you ve grasped the concepts behind the code, you ll find yourself reading and writing in a new language. Learning a programming language might seem like a scary prospect, but it needn t be. DOM Scripting might appear to be more verbose than, say, CSS, but once you ve got the hang of the syntax, you ll find yo- self armed with a powerful web development tool. In any case, the code is there simply to illustrate the concepts. I ll let you in on a secret: nobody memorizes all the syntax and keywords that are part and parcel of any programming language. That s what reference books are for. This isn t a reference book. I m going to cover the bare minimum of syntax required to get up and running with JavaScript. I m really going to focus on the ideas behind DOM Scripting. A lot of these ideas might already be familiar to you: graceful degradation, progressive enhancement, and user-centered design are important concepts in any aspect of front-end web development.” We know from the success of titles such as Web Standards Solutions, Cascading Style Sheets: Separating Content from Presentation, and The Web Designer’s Reference that web designers are increasingly concerned with making sites that don’t just look pretty, but are also built using current best practices. There are three main technologies married together to create usable, standards-compliant web designs: XHTML for data structure, Cascading Style Sheets for styling your data, and JavaScript for adding dynamic effects and manipulating structure on the fly using the Document Object Model. This book is about the latter of the three. DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model gives you everything you need to start using JavaScript and the Document Object Model to enhance your web pages with client-side dynamic effects. Jeremy Keith starts off by giving you a basic crash course in JavaScript and the DOM, then moves on to provide you with several real-world examples built up from scratch, including dynamic image galleries and dynamic menus. Then, he shows you how to manipulate web page style using the CSS DOM, and create markup on the fly. You might have heard of the Document Object Model. You will almost certainly have heard of JavaScript. This book explains exactly what these technologies are, where they came from, and what they can do for you. You don’t need to be a programmer to understand DOM Scripting. In fact, this book is aimed specifically at web designers. Programming concepts are illustrated with easy-to-follow tutorials to teach you the ropes of JavaScript and the DOM as painlessly as possible. You will build practical, real-world examples that you can use on your websites. But this book is more than just a collection of useful scripts: it also examines best practices. JavaScript and the Document Object Model are two very powerful technologies that go together like peanut butter and jelly, but if they aren’t used with forethought, the results could be messy. The examples given here will encourage you to think about DOM Scripting in a responsible, user-centric way. If you’re already using web standards like CSS and XHTML, you’ll appreciate the enhancements that DOM Scripting can offer. Just as CSS allows you to keep your presentation separate from your structure, you can use unobtrusive JavaScript to add dynamic behavior to your web pages without messing with your markup or sacrificing usability. This book is your indispensable guide. Book jacket.
