Object Flowchart

Object Flowchart

JavaScript objects are connected together in a particular order, which you can think of in terms of an organization chart. The primary object in JavaScript is the current window, and all other software objects flow from that window, as seen in Figure A.1. This order of objects is often called the JavaScript object hierarchy, but that name is just a tad too self-important for this book.

Figure A.1.

1 The element object is just a placeholder for MS IE. In coding, it should be replaced with the actual name of the object.2 Style and its properties are available in Netscape 6, but only through document.getElementById, as described in Chapter 14.

3 Exists as of MS IE 5+.

4 The layer (and layers[]) object and its properties only existed in Netscape 4.x, and were not included in later versions.

5 This object (and its properties) exist in Netscape 3+ and MSIE 4+ (Mac).6 This object (and its properties) exist in Netscape 3+ and MSIE 5+ (Mac).
