Chapter 1. Jump-Starting JavaScript > Generated JavaScript

Generated JavaScript

Many designers have their first developmental encounter with JavaScript when they create web pages with tools such as Macromedia Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive, or Microsoft FrontPage. Not only will these tools generate JavaScript for you, but they will do it for either or both of the major browsers.

In looking at the code, however, you have no idea of what’s going on in the code unless you understand JavaScript. Sometimes the generated code will tap into code in one of its libraries that you cannot see. It will connect to an external .js file containing a good deal of code that you won’t see, but can be fairly complex. If you want to change it or even tweak it a little with added or altered code, you’re lost. So, the first goal in learning JavaScript is to be able to fine-tune JavaScript generated in your web site development tools.
