Java & JavaSript
by SpaceCadet11 - 10/4/12 8:44 AM
Just a little 'semantics' to start off with. Somebody mentioned to me that both Java & JavaSc. are different...
I am pretty sure that J.S. is "just for" controlling how 'text' is displayed on a 'web page'. I was dabbling with a tutorial recently..and it instructed me to start that process using a notepad program I have on my computer..then having a sampling of text..by itself showing up on the screen 'in a certain' manner. Is that the main or only way ( using notepad) that J.S. is used or applied to 'web page construction?
Some web pages already have J.S. embedded into the web page that you might be viewing..but is usally hidden.
Is there a 'function' key that you can depress that would 'reveal' these hidden..JavaSripts or controls?
What is Java? by itself? Are they 'controls' that control how other things show up..besides text on 'web pages'?
Thanks for any and all responses
