Getting Back Into Javascript

Recommended Posts

Thanks again Larry for this very fine book on Javascript. I have been extremely busy with work lately and haven't had a change to get back in the book until now.

 

I have to say that among the new features in HTML5, one of my favorites, and most welcome, is the autofocus attribute for form elements. I can't tell you how many sites do not implement javascirpt to set this and now with this new attribute, I hope more use it in their forms now that they won't have to use code to implement this useful feature. Really bugs the crap out of me to load a form and have to click in the first input box to get started. And a lot don't even make sure that the tab order works correctly either!

 

Whew! Got that off my chest!!

Thanks for the nice words on the book. Much appreciated! Thanks, too, for your input. One downside to knowing how to do things is quickly recognizing things not done well!
