'if', arrays, and 'for'
Hands on exercise
This exercise is primarily focused on using the 'if' statement and working with an array of images.
First, create a new page, scripts2.html. (Remember, 'html_skel'
In the <head> element, add a <script> element with the following contents
* declare a variable, A_bold with a value of false
* declare a variable, 'i', initialized to 0 (zero)
* create an array named 'pics' with three entries:
* "boardroom1.jpg", "computer_room.jpg", "conf_a.jpg"
In the <body> element, include:
* A <p> element with an onclick event that:
Checks if A_bold is false, and if so:
+ set the font weight to be bold and
+ set A_bold to be true
+ set the font weight to be normal and
+ set A_bold to be false
The element content should tell the user:
Click this text to swap between bold and normal.
* Another <p> element with content:
"Click the image below to see the next picture"
* An <img> element with src=boardroom1.jpg
and an onclick event that:
Checks if "i" is less than 2, and if so:
+ add 1 to "i"
+ set "i" to 0
then assign "this.src" to be pics[i].
After you have both event handlers working, add a link to scripts2.html from your index.html page.
