JavaScript Object Model Resources

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm looking for links to the JS object model for the not-as-popular
properties and methods. I've found things like hasOwnProperty,
isEnumerable, ===, prototype, and others by searching for things I was
trying to do. I havn't been able to find an all-encompassing object model
online. I've found good ones for events and properties of specific controls
and a lot of different models that describe all the well-known DOM
methods/properties but nothing that just lays out everything.

Even the books I have picked up like JavasScript Bible (5th Edition),
Advanced Javascript Techniques (Livingston), and Beginning JavaScript (Paul
Wilton) don't seem to contain these things. I've tried to discover as much
as I can using different debuggers and they let me see the
properties/methods I know about or have prototyped onto an object...but
things like hasOwnProperty() don't even show up in the debuggers object
model.

Can someone point me to a document that shows the entire JavaScript object
model or point me to better tools to navigate the model. The debuggers I've
used are the Venkmann debugger which I'm using with Firefox 1.5 (that was a
bear to get going), and the IE debugger in conjunction with
VisualStudio.Net. Thanks for any help!

I doubt that you will find a single, all-encompassing reference for
all implementations. Have you been through the list in the FAQ?

<URL:http://www.jibbering.com/faq/#FAQ3>
Remember that ECMAScript (aka JavaScript) is quite separate from the
document object model (DOM) that might be implemented in a browser (or
other host environment).

The W3C DOM is the standard, however implementations differ and there
are extensions which should generally only be used on an intranet or
special interest sites.

Hi Digital! the best way is to continue your search in several sarch
engnies...goto Netscape or several other forums and
documentations...and u will find different things...

also try MSDN for JScript (this is not JavaScript but very similar to
it, Microsoft call it JScript)...

PLs let me if u find something at one place...

Thnx

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the response. The two I found the most helpful are:

http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/JavaScript

and

http://www.ecma-international.org/pu...s/Ecma-262.htm

It looks like the top link needs some work but will be the best one out
there when it is finished.

Hi JItendra,

Here is the best I found:

http://www.ecma-international.org/pu...s/Ecma-262.htm

It is the spec itself and is written towards those creating a JS
implementation. It goes over everything though and really gives a good idea
of how things should be implemented. It shows everything you can do with
Objects, Functions, Arrays and etc. The date on it is 1999 but it seems to
cover everything today's browsers have. That site also has a lot of other
interesting specs.
