Browser sniffing — what little of it remains — should be confined to the dustbin of history. Event handling works in different ways, depending on the browser. We can change the mouseover and mouseout functions to do something else — for example, to make popup help content appear — without needing to start from scratch to get it working. Each browser provides a window.
The childNodes array may contain nothing if the node has no children such nodes are called leaf nodes. The ascendDOM function is called quite often in the code, so you can see the benefit of putting that code into a function. An event is generated, or fired, when something happens to an element: The second line applies the class to a given cell, but our script needs to find the appropriate cells first.
This is called event bubbling shtml an event “bubbles” up through the DOM tree, starting with the target element, until it reaches the top. We’ll explore and fix! Instead, it offers a proprietary and different way to hook up event listeners and gain access to event data. Similarly, a browser that implements the DOM completely and without bugs would make life very easy.
But how do you make your utopla run in response to those events? The possibilities of this recently re-discovered ability have only just started becoming apparent, and the technology has loads of potential.
If there dhtmp any children, their numbering starts at zero. If, before setting up the event listeners, you check that the browser supplies all the DOM features required by the code, event listeners will not be set up for browsers that do not support those features. Since a className is a string, it has all the methods of a string, one of which is replace ; we can call the replace method with a regular expression first parameter and a substitute string second parameter.
Take the following line:. Thanks for the link to Sitepoint. The second function makes sure that the first is connected to the right HTML tag.

BookNomads: DHTML Utopia
Trying to understand each of these rules would be difficult and laborious, and you have better things to do with your time. From this last example, we can see more clearly why valid HTML, including properly nested elements, is important.
Exploring the DOM — being able to find, change, add, and remove elements from your document — is a powerful technique all by itself, and is a fundamental aspect of modern DHTML. In fact, uopia text is in a different node:
