Quatrième de couverture

This book follows up on the enormous success of HTML for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide. This revamped edition provides an easy bridge for those who used the HTML Visual QuickStart Guide to conquer HTML and are now ready to tackle JavaScript.

While other JavaScript books target experienced programmers, this fully revised second edition is aimed at the large group of less technical Web authors who know HTML but know nothing about programming. With JavaScript, even Web page creators without a programming bone in their body can call up pre-cooked Java animations, add clocks to their Web pages, enable their pages to ask questions and gather information from visitors, and more.

Invaluable reference and great for the beginner. 26 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've just started using this one myself, and so far, it's proven to be an invaluable reference. I used to think JavaScript was a difficult and laborious language to learn, especially since the only coding I know is HTML, a little BASIC and some MUSH code (I'm not a programmer, can you tell? *grin*) After paging through the first few chapters of this book, and even jumping around a bit, it's not so much of a mystery anymore, and I now have a correct perception of this popular scripting language, as well as a decent working knowledge. Following the excellent path forged by other titles in the series, this guide is written in a candid, easy to understand manner. Best of all, just like the VQS Guide to HTML4, another of my favorites recommended elsewhere on this site, it's got a companion web site with all of the samples as well as further exercises. Don't waste your time reading thick books full of information you'll never use. Try this one and get to work writing JavaScript immediately. Once you get started and become better versed in the language, you'll want to keep the book nearby as an easy to use reference source.

More Like A Phrase Book Than A Complete Grammar 11 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have found this book *extremely* helpful in integrating certain JavaScript elements into web pages (using the authors' web site which supplements the material in the book is essential, however.)I would highly recommend it to someone with little or no JavaScript knowledge. I think most of the negative reviews (the ones that rate it a star or two because it's "not for serious programmers") are missing the point. If you want to go on a trip to Mexico and need to learn some Spanish quickly to help you survive, you pick up a phrase book by Berlitz or some such publisher. Learning the entire grammar of the Spanish language would be a waste of time for this purpose. Likewise, if you want to read Cervantes in the original, memorizing how order a meal in a restaurant isn't going to help you much. I think the analogy holds true for this book - if you want to journey into the land of JavaScript, this is a good phrase book to help you get along (the authors themselves even encourage you to copy-and-paste many of the commands from their web site so you don't even have to do the typing.) If you want to delve into the grammar of the language, this book would be limited for that purpose.

Just when you thought editions can't get better 6 novembre 2002
Par Meryl K. Evans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Try as you might to take a class in JavaScript or implement scripts by using online resources, it remains on your to do list. You search the Internet for the scripts and can never find the exact one you want or even close enough to do tweaking. Perhaps, it's time to try an alternative and just buy a book on the subject and dive in.
This book is for beginners and intermediates who are comfortable with HTML and lack the time to learn how to implement JavaScript from scratch or without resources. Negrino and Smith set up the book by the "things" you want your Web site to do rather than walk you through all the definitions, objects, operators, syntax, and all that stuff that would make the non-programmer's eyes glaze over. There are other books that serve that purpose.
Open the book and go to the table of contents, find what you need, and start adding it to your Web pages. Screenshots and lines of code are on every page of the book with step-by-step guidelines of how to use and implement the script. You don't even have to type the code from scratch. Instead, go to the book's companion Web site to get the code and fix it up to meet your needs - a great time saver.
If you own an earlier edition of the book, this one has 100 more pages of new material including new chapters on 7 - Forms and Regular Expressions, 11 - CSS, 13 - User Interface Design with JavaScript, 14 - Applied JavaScript, and 15 - Bookmarklets. Furthermore, the scripts in the older editions have been revised to ensure compliance with current Web standards.
Chapter 7 - Forms and Regular Expressions show how to validate email addresses, file names, and URLs. It gives you a gentle introduction to regexes (regular expressions). Don't panic at the thought of them especially with the handy table of expressions and associated characters. Once you try them out, you'll wonder what you ever did without them.
Chapter 13 - User Interface Design with JavaScript gives you the opportunity to create pull-down and sliding menus. Chapter 14 - Applied JavaScript has directions for creating a slideshow with captions and generating bar graphs.
Colorful additions to the book are the Object Flowchart and Object Table printed in color to show you which objects are compatible with which browsers. The flowchart may be a challenge for beginners, but the table makes up for it by listing the object along with its properties, methods and event handlers.
If you're looking to get cooking with JavaScript, look no further than this cookbook with easily modifiable recipes. It belongs on the Web designer's reference shelf.

Here's why so many readers are upset 15 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The JavaScript Visual Quickstart Guide has generated split reviews. Some people loved it and some others absolutely hate it. I'm about done with it, and here's what I have to say:
As far as learning the basics and the theory of JavaScript goes, this book is a disappointment. You won't be ready to generate your own codes from scratch unless your project is similar to the examples given in the book and require minor revisions. The style of the book is:
To achieve task A, type in code A.
To achieve task B, type in code B, etc..
If you're lucky, what you want to do matches one of the countless example codes in the book. The codes are explained very vaguely. For example in one of the codes, a 'return true' statement appears out of nowhere. The return concept has not been explained in the book, and the authors do not make clear where 'true' is being returned to and what consequences it will have. The explanation they have is: You need the 'return true' statement here to make sure the code will work. So, the book has a cut and paste approach, which rightfully upset some readers. But if you read the 'further reading' section at the end of the book, the authors admit that their book is intended for people who just want a code to work quick, and don't care why it works. I wish they made this clear in the foreword, so readers like me who actually want to learn JavaScript could look elsewhere.
As far as the 'copy this code, and it'll work' approach goes, the book is great. The authors claim that their upcoming book:'JavaScript Advanced Visual Quickstart Guide' will focus on the background of the language. That book may be worth a shot.

A great introduction to the JavaScript neophyte 17 juin 2000
Par Shelley Gammon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The VIsual Quickstart Guide series masterfully achieves what is implied by it's name... it gets you started fast and there are lots of visual references (screenshots and code samples) throughout.
If you're already savvy in JavaScript, the text might be a little too elementary, but it's doubtful that a master at JavaScript would be interested in a book w/ this title to begin with.
Just enough info to accomplish the most commonly desired scripts (alert boxes, image roll-overs, clocks, etc.) without overloading the beginner with too many overwhelming projects that are beyond the scope of an intro to the scripting language.
The book is written equally to Macintosh users as well as Windows users and there are screenshots of JavaScript functions from each platform. It's rare that a mainstream book, especially a relatively inexpensive one, covers both platforms. The book also covers both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator/Communicator so that the beginner realizes the limitations that the 2 top platforms and 2 top browsers bring into play. This helps beginners from designing scripts that are only viewable with the same configuration that he/she has, unknowingly excluding other viewers.
