We have two laboratories available for this class. Both of them can be used to easily test simple scripts. I will give you a tour of both labs and let you decide which one to use for this class.
Lets look at Lab 1 first. You will need to do some setup to use this laboratory. Once setup, you will save it to your hard drive where it will be ready to use anytime you want. To set up Lab 1, first open your text editor and type in the HTML source code shown below Then, save the file as lab1.htm.
Here is your first lab assignment using this lab. Type the following line between the <SCRIPT> tags that we have in our BODY section of our template:
Save the file as lab1-expr1.htm. When you load this file into the browser you will of course get a one liner that reads Hello World.
The window is made up of two frames. The lower frame has a template identical to the one you used in Lab 1 already set-up for you. Try it out by putting the same line
in it. When you click on the test button the results are displayed in the top frame.
The reset button clears the lower and top frames and makes the template ready for a new script.
If you want to save or print this script then you will have to highlight it and copy it into your text editor first.
A button to pop-up this Lab will be displayed on any page that I recommend that you test something in the Lab. Also, clicking on Lab in our navigation menu that is displayed on the left side of every lesson page will bring up the Lab any time you need it.
You may want to refer back to this page occasionally if you need to refresh your memory on how to use this Lab. I think it is pretty simple though and hopefully easy to use.
