Detect if JS is enabled

Hi all

I 'm writing a small web app and I would like to know what ways there are to check if the users' browser has JS enabled. I know I can create a page that redirects to a different page using JS but I was wondering if there is a better way of doing it, e.g. do it from the same page.

Thanks a lot

I think that's exactly the kind of thing he wanted to avoid.

To detect if JavaScript is enabled, just put the code in script tags. Make it unobtrusive, i.e. not inline and the code will run if JavaScript is enabled and will be ignored if it's disabled.

Thank you both for your answers. Yes acoder that was what I was trying to avoid :-). I don't know if you 're using gmail. If you try to login to your account and JS is disabled, the page won't load. This is what I would like to accomplish if possible.

Add the page functionality using JavaScript (create elements dynamically) and a noscript message informing the user that they must enable JavaScript to use the page.
