Javascript little technique in browser url

You can run a little piece of javascript code on a webpage.
Type “javascript:” and the follow by your javascript code in the url space.
Then you code snippet will run and return the value on the browser.

I use this to call getCenter() when using google map to figure out where I am now.


Very handy comfirm action Javascript

If you are doing business logic website, there are many times you want to confirm if a user wants to delete something.

At least this is what happen to me. Here is a little javascript which you can add to OnClick() of your ASP button.

return confirm("are you sure?");

Add Javascript to page OnLoad event

I used to add start up javascript to a page dynamically by assigning it to body tag OnLoad attribute. But this approach will get in trouble because it runs before all other web elements are rendered. Also it will need to set runat=”server”.

ASP.NET provide a better approach and I discover it just recently.

In your code-behind

Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartUpScript(this.GetType(), "functionName", "TheScript", true);

This function will put your script at the end of that page and run after the page is completely loaded.
