JavaScript Interview Questions and Answers Part 7


61. Is a javascript script faster than an ASP script?

  • Yes.Since javascript is a client-side script it does require the web server's help for its computation, so it is always faster than any server-side script like ASP,PHP,etc..


62. Are Java and JavaScript the Same?

  • and javascript are two different languages.

  • Java is a powerful object - oriented programming language like C++,C whereas Javascript is a client-side scripting language with some limitations.


63. How to embed javascript in a web page?

  • javascript code can be embedded in a web page between

  • <script langugage="javascript"></script> tags

64. What is the difference between a web-garden and a web-farm?

  • Web-garden - An IIS6.0 feature where you can configure an application pool as a web-garden and also specify the number of worker processes for that pool. It can help improve performance in some cases.

  • Web-farm - a general term referring to a cluster of physically separate machines, each running a web-server for scalability and performance (contrast this with web-garden which refers to multiple processes on one single physical machine).


65. To put a "close window" link on a page ?

<a href='javascript:window.close()' class='mainnav'> Close </a>


66. To write messages to the screen without using "document.write()" ?

  • Changing the contents of an element is a much better solution. When the method showStatus is invoked it will change the content of the span.


function showStatus(message) {

var element = document.getElementById("mystatus");

element.textContent = message; //for Firefox

element.innerHTML = message; //for IE (why can't we all just get along?)

return true;



<span id="mystatus">Test. </span>


67. How to Add new elements dynamically ?

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">



<script type="text/javascript">

function addNode() {

var newP = document.createElement("p");

var textNode = document.createTextNode(" I'm a new text node");







<body onload="addNode();" style=" background: url('../images/Sand-1280.jpg'); background-color: yellow;">


<p id="firstP">firstP<p>





68. How to have an element invoke a javascript on selection, instead of going to a new URL: ?

<script type="text/javascript">

function pseudoClick() {




<a href="javascript:pseudoClick()">Click Here</a>


69. How to have the status line update when the mouse goes over a link ?

  • <a href="javascript.shtml"

  • onmouseover="window.status='Hi There!';return true"

  • onmouseout="window.status='';return true">Look at the Status bar</a>

  • Look at the Status bar as your cursor goes over the link.

70. How to setting a cookie with the contents of a textbox ?

  • Values stored in cookies may not have semicolons, commas, or spaces. You should use the handy "escape()" function to encode the values, and "unescape()" to retrieve them.

//Sets cookie of current value for myTextBox

function TextBoxOnchange() {

var myBox = window.document.getElementById(myTextBox");

document.cookie = "myTextBox="+ escape(myBox.value) + getExpirationString();



//return a string like ";expires=Thu, 5 Jan 2006 16:07:52 UTC"

function getExpirationString() {

var exp = new Date();

var threemonths = exp.getTime()+(120*24*60*60*1000);


return ";expires="+exp.toGMTString();



This is called from the event handler in the HTML.

<input name="myTextBox" type="text" id="myTextBox"

onchange="javascript:TextBoxOnchange()" />

How to getting values from cookies to set widgets?

function getCookieData(labelName) {

//from Danny Goodman

var labelLen = labelName.length;

// read cookie property only once for speed

var cookieData = document.cookie;

var cLen = cookieData.length;

var i = 0;

var cEnd;

while (i < cLen) {

var j = i + labelLen;

if (cookieData.substring(i,j) == labelName) {

cEnd = cookieData.indexOf(";",j);

if (cEnd == -1) {

cEnd = cookieData.length;


return unescape(cookieData.substring(j+1, cEnd));




return "";



//init() is called from the body tag onload function.

function init() {






function setValueFromCookie(widget) {

if( getCookieData(widget) != "") {

document.getElementById(widget).value = getCookieData(widget);




//if you name your cookies the widget ID, you can use the following helper function

function setCookie(widget) {

document.cookie = widget + "=" +

escape(document.getElementById(widget).value) + getExpirationString();
