Write It Out

Today, I wish to talk about another built-in JavaScript function…document.write(). The write() method does what it sounds like…write out information to the page. Let’s dive into an example…

[code lang=”js”]
// Use document.write() to write text to the page
document.write("This will show on the page.");

As you can see, we can pass string text to the method and it will display it. A more powerful use, however, is to pass variables to it. Whatever the value our variable holds will display on the screen using the write() method.

[code lang=”js”]
// Variable to hold data
var myString = "Clay";
// Output data to the screen
document.write("Hello, " + myVar + ", how are you today?");

When we run the above snippet of code, it will output as follows…

Hello, Clay, how are you today?

Note how I am using the plus operator (+) to concatenate the content together. This use of variables and passing them to the write() method is where the real vital usage lies. We can vary the output based upon what the value of the variable is within our program. In JavaScript, you will use this method a ton.

Happy Coding!

Unlocking Wireless Communication: A Dive into the Bluetooth API

Wireless communication has become an integral part of our daily lives, and Bluetooth technology is at the forefront of this revolution, enabling devices to exchange data over short distances and creating a world more interconnected than ever before. At the heart of this technology lies the Bluetooth Application Programming Interface (API), a powerful tool for developers looking to harness the capabilities of Bluetooth in their applications. In this blog post, we’ll explore what the Bluetooth API is, how it works, and the possibilities it opens up for innovation in wireless communication.

Understanding the Beacon API: Simplifying Asynchronous Data Transfers

In today’s data-driven world, web applications often need to send data back to the server. Traditionally, this has been done using AJAX requests or similar methods. However, these techniques can come with a cost, especially when dealing with data that needs to be sent during the unload phase of a document, such as tracking and diagnostic data. This is where the Beacon API shines by allowing developers to send data to a server more reliably and efficiently.
