New Book on JavaScript by SitePoint

The JavaScript Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks and Hacks

March 17, 2006; 05:07 AM

Following the same format as SitePoint’s hugely popular The CSS Anthology, this is the most complete question-and-answer book on JavaScript. It’s a collection of over 100 thoroughly-tested, customizable and elegant solutions that will  show you how to add usable and accessible interactivity to your site: from slick drop-down menus, to style sheet switchers, to AJAX applications, and much more.

The JavaScript Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks also includes download access to all of the best practice code samples used throughout the book -- plug them right into your own web sites without any retyping!

This book will show you how to:
  • Search and replace text using regular expressions.
  • Navigate the DOM and create, delete, and move elements on the page.
  • Validate email addresses on your web forms.
  • Print inline error messages when validating forms.
  • Minimize the problems associated with popup windows.
  • Make a slideshow of images.
  • Ensure your code works on different browsers.
  • Make a style sheet switcher.
  • Build an accessible drop-down menu system.
  • Construct drag 'n' drop interfaces using AJAX.
  • Use JavaScript and Flash together.
  • Make your JavaScript accessible: an in-depth look at minimizing the accessibility problems associated with using JavaScript.
  • Use the XMLHttpRequest object to build AJAX applications.
  • Optimize your JavaScript code so that it runs faster.

If you're using JavaScript on your projects right now, and you want to do things faster and better, this book is for you. The JavaScript Anthology will save you the frustration of hunting down code on the Web only to find that it isn't customizable, and doesn't represent best practice or work across different browsers.

The JavaScript Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks contains thoroughly tested, cross-browser code that you can easily modify to suit your own needs.

The book is written in the usual SitePoint style: it’s clear and fun to read, with plenty of example code that you can apply immediately to your own web sites. Plus, it’s super-easy to navigate the book to find exactly what you want thanks to its cookbook approach and professionally-produced index. It’s the perfect reference book.

There’s no need to re-type any of the code in the book. As always, customers receive instant download access to all the files used in the book, so you can apply them immediately to your own projects.
