Javascript Message Box Example

Chapter 1, The Message Box

displays whatever is typed in the form box below.

Type something in the box. Then click “Show Me”


Here’s the entire page, minus my comments. Take a few minutes to learn as much

<!– Beginning of JavaScript –

function MsgBox (textstring) {

alert (textstring) }

// – End of JavaScript – –>






<INPUT NAME=”text1″ TYPE=Text>

<INPUT NAME=”submit” TYPE=Button VALUE=”Show Me” onClick=”MsgBox(form.text1.value)“>
