  1. Version 5 Events

    In javascript there are basically two types of events that can be assigned to elements and objects. I classify them as version 4 events (those that were available in Netscape 4 and IE 4), and version 5 events, those that became available starting with IE 5 and presumably NS 5, but the earliest I'm aware of them in NS was NS 6 (I don't recall ever seeing a NS 5 browser).

    Version 4 events are still available in today's browsers and are usually the first ones folks learn about, examples: ...

  2. document.getElementById shortcut

    I'm amazed at how many people don't use a very simple shortcut for document.getElementById. This is for all the people who don't use a javascript library like jQuery.

    All you have to do is include this code somewhere on your page

    Code:
    function $(element) {
    return document.getElementById(element);
    }
    Then when you want to use document.getElementById('id'); just type $('id'); instead.

    Example

    Code:
    <html>

  3. Forcing YouTube to play videos in a specific quality

    I was having troubles the other day loading a YouTube-video (using Firefox). The URL:
    http://www.youtube.com/v/W13GifsFFfk?version=3
    (this url may work on your machine, but it doesn't on mine (when I use Firefox)).

    My guess was that the problem was caused by the video's HD-quality. So I googled around to see how we can force YouTube to play videos in a specific quality. I found that we can do it by appending the following to the YouTube-url:

  4. Replacing iframe attributes with javascript (HTML5)

    I was working the other day on a script for setting the height of an iframe to match the height of its content and noticed that under certain circumstances the iframe gets its scroll bars 'back' when it shouldn't. This happens mainly when the iframe is given a very small width. Overflow: hidden solves the problem in Firefox (most of the time), but not in IE. This browsers needs scrolling="no", which also works in non-IE. However, attributes like scrolling="no" and frameborder="no" ...

  5. Select boxes having javascript in the options

    In non-IE except Google Chrome, we can call functions from inside a select box by putting things like the following in the options:
    <option value="bla" onclick="some_function()"></option>
    <option value="bla" onclick="window.open('http://www.google.com')"></option>
    etc.

    This is not possible in IE and Google Chrome. In an earlier attempt to solve the problem, I created a script based on the idea that ...
