  1. Jonathon says:

    Today I learned that approx. 99.9% of the internet population has JavaScript enabled in their browser. So JavaScript has a lot of creative potential. I will learn JavaScript.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Using JSBin to test our javascript. I had already forgotten about that great little tool.

    What did you learn from that?
    Great online tool.

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Use it more often to test my javascript.

    Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    There’s so much to know, I don’t know where to start.

    What could we have done better?
    I wish we could have worked on a single project starting on the first class, and build on it in future assignments. That said, I realize that we only have 4 classes, so there’s only so much that we can do.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Event listeners was interesting and using the windows.onload to be able to have your script at the beginning (where it’s easier to find) and yet still reference things later in the page.
    What did you learn from that?
    I learned where I can find more information and how they’re typically structured
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I’ll look more into event listeners and what I can do with them

    Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
    I’d like to know more about AJAX but I can understand if that fits better in the JQuery course, so I can wait.
    What could we have done better?
    Great so far.

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?

    innerHTML – changing text with innerHTML. So much better than popup window which you really don’t see much anymore, right?
    Secondly, that JavaScript is case sensitive which I don’t care for.

    What did you learn from that?

    That you can probably do so many neat things with innerHTML that we haven’t looked at.

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    I will experiment with with innerHTML on my own to see what more can be done.

    Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?

    Where can you edit out the window popup message “The page at URL link says:” when you use window.alert?

    • JimUBC says:

      Hi Jules,

      You can’t change operation or the wording in a window.alert(), but you can build your own. You’ll have to do some research. Try searching for javascript modal dialog. As for case sensitivity, JavaScript has a lot of company in that. You can learn more by doing a search for why are many languages case sensitive.

    I wish I had more time to do all homework and look into Javascript. It was neat to learn how to do pop-up windows. If i need to create my personal website one day.Just kidding. I really like Jsbin tool. Makes life a bit easier.
