JavaScript Interview Questions and Answers Part 8


71. How to change style on an element?

  • Between CSS and javascript is a weird symmetry. CSS style rules are layed on top of the DOM. The CSS property names like "font-weight" are transliterated into "". The class of an element can be swapped out. For example:

document.getElementById("myText").style.color = "green";

document.getElementById("myText").style.fontSize = "20";


document.getElementById("myText").className = "regular";


72. How to make elements invisible?

  • Change the "visibility" attribute of the style object associated with your element. Remember that a hidden element still takes up space, use "display" to make the space disappear as well.


if ( x == y) { = 'visible';

} else { = 'hidden';



73. How to set the cursor to wait?

  • In theory, we should cache the current state of the cursor and then put it back to its original state. = 'wait';

//do something interesting and time consuming = 'auto';


74. How to reload the current page ?



75. How to convert a string to a number using JavaScript?

  • You can use the parseInt() and parseFloat() methods.

  • Notice that extra letters following a valid number are ignored, which is kinda wierd but convenient at times

parseInt("100") ==> 100

parseFloat("98.6") ==> 98.6

parseFloat("98.6 is a common temperature.") ==> 98.6

parseInt("aa") ==> Nan //Not a Number

parseInt("aa",16) ==> 170 //you can supply a radix or base


76. How to convert numbers to strings using JavaScript?

  • You can prepend the number with an empty string

var mystring = ""+myinteger;


var mystring = myinteger.toString();


  • You can specify a base for the conversion,

var myinteger = 14;

var mystring = myinteger.toString(16);

mystring will be "e".


77. How to test for bad numbers using JavaScript?

the global method, "isNaN()" can tell if a number has gone bad.

var temperature = parseFloat(myTemperatureWidget.value);

if(!isNaN(temperature)) {

alert("Please enter a valid temperature.");



78. What's the Date object using JavaScript?

  • JavaScript comes with a built-in Date object that allows you to easily work with date and time data and related functions.

  • Both dates and times in JavaScript are derived from the Date object, which behaves much like any other object. To implement the current date or time in your script, you must first create a new instance of the object. You can then extract the desired data from that particular instance.

  • All dates are stored as the number of milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00.

  • The Date object is a built-in object by which you can create instances to store encoded data related to the date and time of a certain moment.

  • The Date object is built in, just like the Array object. It acts as a template when creating instances of the object. The most basic assignment statement regarding the Date object is obviously the one that creates an instance according to the default arguments:



varInstance_date = new Date()

  • The above statement simply assigns an instance of the Date object to the data structure named Instance_date.



new Date(06,01,02) // produces "Fri Feb 02 1906 00:00:00 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time)"

new Date(06,01,02).toLocaleString() // produces "Friday, February 02, 1906 00:00:00"

new Date(06,01,02) - new Date(06,01,01) // produces "86400000"


79. How tp create Arrays using JavaScript ?

  • The below example shows how to create arrays in JavaScript:

  • Example:



<title>cbtSAM Javascript Array Example</title>

<script type="text/javascript">

var days = new Array();

days[0] = "Sunday"

days[1] = "Monday"

days[2] = "Tuesday"

days[3] = "Wednesday"

days[4] = "Thursday"

days[5] = "Friday"

days[6] = "Saturday"

document.write("First day of week is: "+days[1])






  • Output:

  • First day of week is: Monday


80. How to delete an entry using JavaScript?

  • The "delete" operator removes an array element, but oddly does not change the size of the array.

  • Example:


<script type="text/javascript">

var days = ["Sunday","Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday", "Thursday","Friday","Saturday"];

document.write("Number of days:"+days.length); delete days[4];

document.write("<br />Number of days:"+days.length);


  • This produces

  • Number of days:7

  • Number of days:7
