I am a newbie who is aspiring to develop cool stuff one day. Right now, i am still really green and read the dummy manual. Please help me and i will really appreciate it a lot.
While doing one of the exercises, switch function, i cant seem to get it activated.
The code is as follows. I used alert function to test variable, die. Thus, i guess the main problem got to be the switch statements.
var die = Math.ceil(Math.random() * 6);
var output = "";
output = "I";
output = "II";
output = "III";
output = "IV"
output = "V";
output = "VI";
output = "PROBLEM!";
; seems to be missed at case 4 after output = "IV". to avoid such errors try to compose the code so that it can be easily observed.
and pls read my signature <wink>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
var die=Math.ceil(Math.random() * 6);
<center><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><div id="autpoot"></div><br /><br /><a href="#null" id="lnk">stop it</a></center>
signature under construction
@Padonak: That won't affect anything, in this example. The compiler will insert a semicolon there. It is best to add them in, though.
@chesteron: The code works for me. I suggest you use Math.floor instead of Math.ceil, though. It's better when working with Math.random()
I have a skype if you have any other questions (thetenfold).
ps: It's called a switch statement, not function, just so you know.
@Padonak: Thanks. I will be sure to keep it in mind. I am currently kinda working with external script sheet which is why i am not putting the script tag.
@tenfold. Thanks for correcting. For some reason, i tried creating switch statement of other sort, the really basic type, but it still aint working.
I am using Safari version 5.06 and currently coding from my dreamweaver, then testing it out via safari (preview output). I am guessing its the infrastructure problem that i am having. Reason why i am still using old browser is because my mac is OS X 10.5. Planning to get a new ultrabook if there are good deals out there, so meanwhile, i am going to stick to the old versions.
Yes, and i will be adding you. Thanks for the helping hand, appreciate it.
You're welcome Does Safari 5.06 have an error console? If so, you should check it.
Otherwise, I can't see any errors in that current code. Maybe Dreamweaver is doing something funny? Dunno, never used it.
