Built In Java Script Functions And Event Handlers?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there was a website or book that listed all the built in Java script functions, or even browser Dom properties?


What I am saying is how do people learn of the built in's like new Array, onClick, if, else, whenever. other than learning it from word of mouth?


I couldn't even seem to find the built in functions even on the W3S website, at least not all in one place {like a list of them}.


Then there are all kinds of DOM objects with their properties, which I must say is somewhat clearly found at W3School, but it would be nice if there is a list with all of them named in one place. But I would really like to know if there is an official list of the built in Javascript functions and properties and event handlers all in one place, so that I could reference them from there. Why attempt to create a function especially if one already exists, and why accidentally use a reserved keyword in a custom function that could cause one to be committed for brain damage in a near by mental institution because they spent weeks trying to find logic in the logic of an error that seemed illogical?


Nerds live a dangerous life which is probably why they are so stringent on defining terms, so they at least have an idea what hit them in the undefined world of script.

Thanks grabenair,;

sorry it took me so long to reply back, that site looks like they cover the java script functions.


I guess it just that I am new to this and I am not used to the constant searching for nid bits of information, in the old days someone would have given a pretty complete composite in a book, but I guess times have changed and scripting evolves to fast to find it practical to list all functionality.


Anyway, I so appreciate your response.
