Creating and Using a String Object: Anchor() Method

P: 35
Hi Guys,

I've been cramming in and trying the anchor() method all day but I cannot seem to find the right syntax. What does the method do? How is it different to the Link() method

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script language = "javascript" type = "text/javascript">
  2.  
  3. document.write("<p>");
  4. var txt="Hello world!";
  5. document.write(txt.anchor);
  6. document.all(txt.name("myanchor") + "</p>");
  7.  
  8. </script>

the anchor method creates an in-page link.

this is usefull for table of contents for long documents - clicking the chapter listing could scroll the page down right to the chapters test, like a pdf.



you pass it a name to use for the shortcut:

"chapter 1".anchor("ch1");


to just to that anchor, you use another anchor, whose href property is "#ch1".

this could be make via "Jump to Chapter One".link("#ch1")


i hope this sheds some light on these overlooked string methods.
