    Did you know you could have access to a color table?

    I was puttsing around a bit, and i landed upon this little trinket:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...secolordlg.asp

    The method is called ChooseColorDlg(). It will launch for you a color palette, essentially. I did not know that.

    Well, hope, you like it.

    it's IE only tho, since it's based on ActiveX. unless you wanna disenfranchise FF users (nearly 10% of the web), then go ahead.

    actually, it is a good wee device but not all that practical, eh!

    Didnt say it was cross browser specific. It is an MDSN thing.

    Actually, i found it a little trippy. Makes sense though in many ways, since you already have the alert, confirm box, and the prompt box.

    Will admit thats week when you cant really apply all goodies accross platforms.

    Wonder if there's a book that is like the definitive guide to JScript?

    there used to be a book called "Mastering JavaScript and JScript". also, WROX books tend to pay attention to the differences and have chapters devoted to the specialisms, sometimes including ScriptEase (another JS-variant).

    you can always look up Amazon to see. to be honest, MSDN is a great resource for M$ scripting. a book might not necessarily add anything, other than give you a bound hard copy.

    Yea, i found this short list:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/se...577354-8761411

    They dont seem to rate well though, the books i mean.

    From Wrox, yea, they arent too bad. I liked the one called "Beginning JavaScript Second Edition", by Paul Wilton, if you really want like a forrest glimps as opposed to the individual trees:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Still havent read Danny Goodman's, or David Flanagan's books. I read they are the best, from the reviewers.

    yes, i've heard that too. DannyG's seems to offer the best quality scripts and insights into the power of JS.

    it's also a good idea to get a JS reference or dictionary. that way you look up a method whenever you come across one without having to flick thru a tome. (same goes for PHP, too - tho, to be honest, there's not much better than php.net!)

    I will presume you mean the website when you speak of php.net?

    no, i meant it's good to get a good reference book, tho, if you can find a good reference website (like php.net is to PHP), then that's better still.
