JavaScript Interview Questions and Answers Part 3


21. How to set the focus in an element using Javascript?

  • Example: To set the focus in an element using Javascript

<script type="text/javascript">

function setFocus() {

if(focusElement != null)







22. How to access an external javascript file that is stored externally and not embedded?

  • This can be achieved by using the following tag between head tags or between body tags.

  • <script src="abc.js">

  • </script>

  • where abc.js is the external javscript file to be accessed.


23. Are javascript and jQuery different?

  • jQuery is a quick as well as concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, animating, event handling, & Ajax interactions for the purpose of quick web development needs.

  • So although they are not entirely different, both are not the same either!


24. Difference between window.onload and onDocumentReady?

  • The onload event does not fire until every last piece of the page is loaded, this includes css and images, which means there’s a huge delay before any code is executed.

  • That isnt what we want. We just want to wait until the DOM is loaded and is able to be manipulated. onDocumentReady allows the programmer to do that.


25. What is a prompt box?

  • The JavaScript prompt box prompts the user to input text. The 'prompt' box is created using JavaScript's built-in prompt() function.

  • When the JavaScript prompt() function is triggered, a small box will pop up and display a message to the user (supplied by you), a text field (for the user's input), an "OK" button, and a "Cancel" button.

  • If the user clicks "OK" the box returns the input value. If the user clicks "Cancel" the box returns null.

  • Syntax:

  • General syntax of prompt box is as follows:

propmpt (“textmessage”,”default_value”)


26. Can javascript code be broken in different lines?

  • Breaking is possible within a string statement by using a backslash \ at the end but not within any other javascript statement.

  • that is ,

  • document.write("Hello \ world");

  • is possible but not document.write \

  • ("hello world");


27. What looping structures are there in JavaScript?

  • for, while, do-while loops, but no foreach.


28. How do you create a new object in JavaScript?

  • var obj = new Object();

  • or var obj = {};


29. What is this keyword?

  • The JavaScript this keyword is used within any function scope or the global scope, and in each scope it receives a different value.

  • The value of this inside a function, effectively depends on the object which called it.

  • Scope? Every function gets its own space in order to define variables and properties.

  • When we want to access a certain variable, we must do it through the space in which it was defined. In JavaScript, when we haven’t defined a function, everything happens in global scope.


30. What is the difference between SessionState and ViewState?

  • ViewState is specific to a page in a session. Session state refers to user specific data that can be accessed across all pages in the web application.
