Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the DOM, part of HTML Essential Training.
- [Instructor] I've spent a good deal of time in this course…talking about document outlines…and the importance of generating a logical, clear structure.…In this exercise, we're gonna see…how important that can be as we explore…using the DOM, or document object model.…The DOM is a standardized way of referencing page elements…in HTML documents.…The elements are described as a tree,…with parent nodes at the top and child nodes…branching off in a sequence.…So, for this document, for example,…the body element would be seen at the top of the tree…and then this header would be an immediate child node…off of that.…
The DOM not only describes this tree,…but it also gives us methods for traversing…and accessing these elements programmatically.…All right, so, to explore this concept,…I'm gonna be working in the next to that HTM,…found in the 08_04 directory…and what I want to do is scroll down…'til I find the functions that we created…in the last exercise.…Now, the first thing I want to do…is actually gonna be up top, above my onload function.…
