    pythagorean theorem

    I'm trying to create code to give me the result of the pythagorean theorem. I want to know if I'm going in the right direction so far. Any input is appreciated.

    This is my code along with some comments regarding what I want to do:

    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <title> Functions </title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <script>
    window.onload = init;

    function init() {
    var button = document.getElementById("submit");
    button.onclick = pythagoras;
    }

    // Computes the length of side c of a triangle, given
    // the lengths of side a and b, using the Pythagorean Theorem
    function pythagoras() {
    // your code here to get the values of sides and b
    // remember to convert a and b to numbers (using parseFloat)

    function solvepy(form) {
    var a = parseFloat(form.a.value);
    var b = parseFloat(form.b.value);
    form.c.value = Math.sqrt(a*a + b*b);
    }

    function pythagoras(form) {
    var aInput = document.getElementById("a");
    var bInput = document.getElementById("b");
    }



    var result = displayResult();


    }

    // your code here to compute the value of side c


    // your code here to call the function displayResult

    }


    function displayResult(a, b, c) {
    var div = document.getElementById("result");
    div.innerHTML = "Triangle: a = " + a + ", b = " + b + ", c = " + c;
    }

    displayResult();
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form>
    <label for="a">Enter lengths for sides a: </label>
    <input type="number" id="a" size="3">
    <label for="b"> and b: </label>
    <input type="number" id="b" size="3"> <br>
    <input type="button" id="submit" value="Compute c!">
    </form>
    <div id="result">
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Hi there pholder,

    Here is a possible solution...
    Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    
    <head>
    
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    
    <title> Functions </title>
    
    <style>
    body {
        background-color:#f0f0f0;
        font-family:verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;
        font-size:16px;
     }
    form {
        width:380px;
        padding:20px;
        border:1px solid #999;
        margin:20px auto;
        background-color:#fff;
        box-shadow:10px 10px 20px #666;
        font-size:100&#37;;
        text-align:center;
     }
    form div {
        margin:10px 0;
     }
    #result {
        width:420px;
        line-height:30px;
        border:1px solid #999;
        margin:auto;
        background-color:#fff;
        box-shadow:10px 10px 20px #666;
        text-align:center;
        font-size:90%;
     }
    .hide {
        display:none;
     }
    </style>
    
    <script>
    
    function init() {
    
       df=document.forms[0];
       obj=document.getElementById('result');
       df.reset();
    
    df[2].onclick=function() {
       a=parseFloat(df[0].value);
       b=parseFloat(df[1].value);
    
    if((isNaN(df[0].value))||(df[0].value=='')||
       (isNaN(df[1].value))||(df[1].value=='')) {
       alert('numbers only');
       df.reset();
       return;
     }
    
       c=Math.sqrt(a*a+b*b);
       obj.innerHTML='Triangle: a='+a+',  b='+b+',  c='+c;
       obj.className='';
     }
    
    df[3].onclick=function() {
       obj.className='hide';
      }
     }
       window.addEventListener?
       window.addEventListener('load',init,false):
       window.attachEvent('onload',init);
    </script>
    
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <form action="#">
    <div>
     <label for="a">Enter lengths for sides a: </label>
     <input type="text" id="a" size="3">
     <label for="b"> and b: </label>
     <input type="text" id="b" size="3">
    </div><div>
     <input type="button" value="Compute c">
     <input type="reset" value="Clear">
    </div>
    </form>
    
    <div id="result" class="hide"></div>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Use tabs to clear your code... You will better see errors !
    Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <title> Functions </title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <script>
    window.onload = init;
    function init() {
    	var button = document.getElementById("submit");
    	button.onclick = pythagoras;
    }
    // Computes the length of side c of a triangle, given
    // the lengths of side a and b, using the Pythagorean Theorem
    function pythagoras() {
    	// your code here to get the values of sides and b
    	// remember to convert a and b to numbers (using parseFloat)
    	function solvepy(form) {
    		var a = parseFloat(form.a.value);
    		var b = parseFloat(form.b.value);
    		form.c.value = Math.sqrt(a*a + b*b);
    	}
    	function pythagoras(form) {
    		var aInput = document.getElementById("a");
    		var bInput = document.getElementById("b");
    	}
    	var result = displayResult();
    }
    // your code here to compute the value of side c
    // your code here to call the function displayResult
    } // to delete
    function displayResult(a, b, c) {
    	var div = document.getElementById("result");
    	div.innerHTML = "Triangle: a = " + a + ", b = " + b + ", c = " + c;
    }
    displayResult(); // to delete, it is to early to call this function, the document does not exist !
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form>
    	<label for="a">Enter lengths for sides a: </label>
    	<input type="text" id="a" size="3">
    	<label for="b"> and b: </label>
    	<input type="text" id="b" size="3"> <br>
    	<input type="button" id="submit" value="Compute c!">
    </form>
    <div id="result">
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>
    I replace the input type number with type text which are more usual and cross browsers...

    here's a little version with a display :

    Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <style type="text/css">
    		#tri {
    			width:0px; 
    			height:0px; 
    			border-left:50px solid transparent;
    			border-bottom:50px solid red; /* bottom, add background color here */
    		}
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    height:<input id="height" type="text" value="50"/>		
    width: <input id="width" type="text" value="50"/>
    hyp: <input id="hyp" type="text"/>
    <input type="button" value="calculate" onclick="calcTri()"/>	
    <div id="tri"></div>	
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function calcTri(){
    var thetri=document.getElementById("tri");
    var ht=document.getElementById("height").value;
    var wd=document.getElementById("width").value;
    document.getElementById("hyp").value=Math.sqrt((ht*ht)+(wd*wd))
    thetri.style.borderBottom=ht+"px solid red"
    thetri.style.borderLeft=wd+"px solid transparent"
    }
    </script>		
    </body>
    </html>
