2. Client-side JavaScript

Chapter 2. Client-side JavaScript

Client-side JavaScript is the name given to JavaScript code that is embedded within an HTML file and executed by a web browser. In addition to the core objects described in the previous section, client-side JavaScript code has access to a number of other objects that represent the web browser, the document displayed in the browser, and the contents of that document. Client-side JavaScript programs are usually event-based, which means that JavaScript event handlers are executed in response to user interactions with the browser and the document. The client-side JavaScript scripting framework is powerful enough to open substantial security holes in web browsers. For this reason, web browsers typically restrict the actions of client-side scripts. This section starts by explaining how JavaScript code is embedded in HTML files, then goes on to introduce the client-side JavaScript objects, JavaScript events and event handling, and JavaScript security restrictions.
