jQuery Usage and Example

JavaScript code is mostly implemented under HTML <script> tag within web page to execute and instruct all types of web browsers.

JavaScript code is written into an HTML page. When a user requests an HTML page with JavaScript in it, the script is sent to the browser and it’s up to the browser to do something with it.

JavaScript is normally used to validate login, signup, validate web form on client side, opening pages in customized windows, to get web browser viewport’s height and width, storing information on the visitor’s computer and then retrieving this information automatically next time the user visits your page etc.

Sample Code

Following is the basic example code that is designed for you to get started using JavaScript:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <title>What is Javascript?</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        //assigning value '10' to Javascript variable 'noOfCount'
        var noOfCount = 10;

        //Writing a noOfCount value on webpage
        document.write("OUTPUT:<br />");
        document.write("=========<br />");
        document.write("Value of noOfCount = " + noOfCount);
