Write JavaScript Code

 

How to Write JavaScript Code

This is part 10 of the JavaScript tutorial. If you missed the previous lessons, make sure you complete them prior to viewing this Writing JavaScript Code tutorial.

Now that you understand the basics of JavaScript, how it is written, and what it expects, you can start writing your own JavaScript code. As with anything else, this does take practice, but as you continue to write code, you will improve. You will also know exactly what to write to perform the actions that you want performed without having to refer to samples or cheat sheets.

Everyone who starts uses cheat sheets, so don’t feel like you “aren’t getting it” when you refer to charts and tables to find out how to make a specific thing happen using JavaScript. This is perfectly acceptable.

 
JavaScript code can get very long, and at first glance, it may seem overwhelming or complicated. Just start reading from the top down, and make sure that you understand what each line of code is doing. You have all of the information to understand JavaScript code right here. It is made up of everything that you’ve learned here.

Just take your time and learn the codes at your own pace. If you don’t understand something, reread the instructions and keep practicing. You will be writing your own JavaScripts in no time.

On the following pages, you will find different reference charts that you can use to write your own JavaScript. Remember that there are literally thousands of commands, statements, variables, functions, and methods that you can use to make your web pages perform certain tasks.

 
This concludes the Write JavaScript Code lesson. In the next section, you will find a JavaScript Object Reference Chart.
