My First Use of JavaScript : A Basic Calculator.

Well, I found it that whenever I learn a language the first code I write is always a calculator. I have started taking tutorials on JavaScript few weeks ago to create my own blog, just for fun as I do software engineering on VB.NET platform mainly, that is my site of interest. However, web developing is always interesting to me and I also know that it has a very high level of hard-work and creativity included with it. I don't want to get to that much of details.

On the first day I learnt about using Textboxes, using their values, creating and using functions. Well after that our tutor asked us to do something with what we just learned. Then I wrote the very common 4 functions to do additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions. Then took two textboxes to take input and another to show result. I also used 4 buttons for the previously mentioned 4 mathematical operations, clicking on each of them the corresponding function will be called. I know its very simple, but I enjoyed.

What I did is a following,

X =
Y =

Result =

The code for the above calculator is as follows, I think there is nothing to explain here.

<script type="text/javascript">
function add(form)
form.result.value=parseFloat(form.a.value) + parseFloat(form.b.value)
function sub(form)
form.result.value=parseFloat(form.a.value) - parseFloat(form.b.value)
function multi(form)
form.result.value=parseFloat(form.a.value) * parseFloat(form.b.value)
function div(form)
form.result.value=parseFloat(form.a.value) / parseFloat(form.b.value)
