First, we’ll use Sublime to create an index.html file with the usual boilerplate information, and we’ll also create a quick button in our body tag.
How To Use Java Script
Then we’ll create a js folder and put a file called script.js in it – this name is traditional. Next, we’ll link this JS file to our code, just like we did for the CSS and Bootstrap framework in the previous tutorial. It will go into our chapter tab.
Now, when we refresh the page, we see that even though we wrote the element, it is hidden because we set the display property to None.
Now we have the detectMessage function, but it’s not yet bound to the button. Back in our HTML, we’ll add an onclick attribute to our button and give it a value of discoverMessage. It basically says to keep running the detectMessage function when this button is pressed.
Next, we’ll create a div and place these styles and id attributes from the paragraph on the div to hide the message and countdown.
However, you may notice that sometimes our countdown goes below zero. To avoid this, we can add something called an if statement. Basically, we’ll say the button’s default new value is zero, but if the button’s current value is 1 or greater, then we’ll subtract (count down) 1 and make it the button’s new value. Otherwise, the button value will be null, the default value.
Note: After this tutorial, you may notice that your browser and console look different from the example in the image. Browsers are updated frequently and often include new tools and possibly new visual styles. These updates should not affect your ability to use the console in your browser.
To open the web console in FireFox, go to the menu ☰ in the upper right corner next to the address bar.
If you want to change the command you entered in the console, you can type the up arrow (↑) key on your keyboard to go back to the previous command. This will allow you to modify the order and resubmit.
Note that after reloading the page after changing it in the console, it will return to the state it was in before the document was changed. Be sure to save any changes you want to save elsewhere.
File to learn how to modify it using the console. Create in your favorite text editor
If you save the HTML file above and load it into a browser of your choice, you will see a blank page with the title:
After creating this element, you can proceed to create text nodes that can be added to paragraphs:
The console gives you experimentation with modifying HTML pages, but it’s important to remember that when you’re working on the console, you’re not modifying the HTML document itself. After reloading the page, it reverts to a blank document.
Depending on the browser development tools you use, there are other tools you can use to help you with your web development workflow.
Every time a webpage loads, the browser it’s in creates the Document Object Model, or DOM, for that page.
The DOM is a tree of objects and displays HTML elements in a hierarchical view. The DOM tree is available in Firefox’s Inspector panel or Chrome’s Elements panel.
These tools allow you to inspect and edit DOM elements, and also allow you to identify HTML associated with specific page aspects. DOM can tell you a piece of text or
