EVENT handling with JavaScript tutorials

  • Events are the mechanism, by which the browser responds, to the user actions. Events can be expressed as any action from user or any activity related with browser.

  • Events describe actions that occur as the result of user interaction with a Web page or other browser-related activities.

  • For example, when a user clicks a hyperlink or a button, or enters data in a form, an event is generated informing the browser that an action has occurred and that further processing is required.

  • The browser waits for events to occur, and when they do, it performs whatever processing is assigned to those events. The processing that is performed in response to the occurrence of an event is known as event handling.

  • The code that performs this processing is called an event handler.

  • Following are some of the things that can be undertaken with help of HTML and JavaScript.

    1. Display Message in case of some events

    2. Flash Alert message in case of some events

    3. Validate data entry form

    4. Perform Calculations and display result.

    5. Load / Display animation in response to some event

    6. Interact with java Applet and other Plug-ins.

  • Following are some of the Important Events (HTML 4.01 Event Handlers) and its descriptions:
