View Full Version : Javascript Quick Refrence Program

02-16-2007, 12:20 AM
ive been bored and have had some spare time after school, so i decided to make a program to compile some of the good aspects of javascript programming for reference to programmers.

its not that sophisticated but it does the job.


as shown above.

id love comments.

or to know it anyone would use it

im getting the information from echoecho and w3schools

i realize its all on the internet and accessed easily, but just incase your ever without internet and need some help! :)

give me a break i have no life. :)

ha anyway, happy programming to all

Looks nice Rappa :thumbsup:

I'll test it out for you (need a download link though)....I have a similar local JS resource, so we'll see how it stacks up against the competition! ;)

Actually, what the heck, here is a download link to the resource I sometimes use: click here (http://www.mediamogulsweb.com/client/JShelp/javascript.chm). I believe it was also ripped from w3schools.com.

It would be nice to have a complete javascript reference local on my computer though...the above help file is less than complete, to put it mildly...

So how did you program the interface? What language(s)?

agreed it looks good

I like chump2877 use the javascript javascript.chm
I also have a reference list as part of my editer but is even less complete
The core referance is always available and easily navigated.

One(of a number) problem with your offering is maintenance, note that the concate description is missleading as more than two arrays can be included, hence the tab needs updating.

But I do not wish to detract from your efforts, good learning exercise, thats for sure.

Good Work

actually the concat and array are the only objects i have done because i only started it today.

but if you want to try it i can compile it and upload it somewhere.

and im not that great of a js writer (i do c#, which is what its written in)

so if the info is wrong or misleading its not my fault, because i didnt write it, but if you have a fix please tell me, and ill update.

trust you appreciate that I was not trying to find fault but pointing a massive maintenance task you may tire of.

As I say you will certainly know your javascript if you take this on.

concat Method (Array)
Returns a new array consisting of a combination of two or more arrays.

array1.concat([item1[, item2[, . . . [, itemN]]]])


Required. The Array object to which all other arrays are concatenated.

item1,. . ., itemN

Optional. Additional items to add to the end of array1.

The concat method returns an Array object containing the concatenation of array1 and any other supplied items.

The items to be added (item1 itemN) to the array are added, in order, from left to right. If one of the items is an array, its contents are added to the end of array1. If the item is anything other than an array, it is added to the end of the array as a single array element.

Elements of source arrays are copied to the resulting array as follows:

For an object reference copied from any of the arrays being concatenated to the new array, the object reference continues to point to the same object. A change in either the new array or the original array will result in a change to the other.
For a numeric or string value being concatenated to the new array, only the value is copied. Changes in a value in one array does not affect the value in the other.
The following example illustrates the use of the concat method when used with an array:

function ConcatArrayDemo(){
var a, b, c, d;
a = new Array(1,2,3);
b = "JScript";
c = new Array(42, "VBScript);
d = a.concat(b, c);
//Returns the array [1, 2, 3, "JScript", 42, "VBScript"]
Version 3

i think im going to finish the array category before i make changes, but thanks.

im getting all info from http://www.echoecho.com/qrarray.htm

suggest best to start with a recognised reference source


02-16-2007, 02:05 AM
arghh, alright ill restart. and thanks. dont want wrong or incomplete info!

Please let me know how you get on

Please let me know how you get on

Absolutely, if he creates a complete offline reference for Javascript, I'd like to know about it...I'm sure a lot of JS programmers would be interested
