    Default JS Functions??

    I have studied JavaScript, and at one time it was my favorite programming language. But I still have one question: what are the built-in functions (that any of you guys would know of) in JavaScript?

    Please let me know if this thread is non-feasible and not needed (that is, the Moderators).

    It's not really feasible to cover this exhaustively in a post, there are so many native 'functions' - I prefer to think of them as methods or objects, and technically I believe they are objects. Things like:

    Code:
    document.getElementById();
    or:

    Code:
    Date();
    Which are both objects, but not at the same level. Here is a fairly good reference (covers standard objects and Mozilla specific ones - usually distinguishing between the two, also covers some IE specific stuff tangentially):

    http://developer.mozilla.org/en/A_re..._to_JavaScript

    Here is the MS reference:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...5a(VS.80).aspx

    Where all IE specific methods are covered, along with standard ones. Mention is usually made as to which is which.

    Heh. That's what I thought. Too large of an area to cover. Thank you for your kind post! I will remember those URLs.
