Add two numbers

Adding Two numbers

This post focuses on adding two numbers, adding two numbers does not mean static value but dynamic inputs with a simple number validation. Below is the step by step procedure.

Create a index.html and place the below code in the body section of the HTML file. 

<title>Add two numbers</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="script.js" >
Enter the first number: <input type="text" id="txt1" /><br />
Enter the seccond number: <input type="text" id="txt2" /><br />
<input type="button" onclick="call()" value="Add"/>

Create a javascript file(script.js) with the below content.

function call(){
var q=parseInt(document.getElementById("txt1").value);
var w=parseInt(document.getElementById("txt2").value);
var result=q+w;
          alert("please enter a number");
         var result=q+w;
         alert("The sum is " +result);

Please do not forget to include the javascript file(script.js) in the index.html.
In this example you would have observed the following javascript terms.
  • onclick
  • document.getElementById
  • parseInt
  • isNaN

1. onclick-In the above example onclick it calls the function call();
2. document.getElementById -gets the values entered in the input fields which defined with id's txt1 and txt2.
3.parseInt - converts the value to Int type.
4.isNaN - checks if the value is NaN.

Couple of things to be noted
  1. document.getElementById always returns a string value, so we need to convert the value to Int(parseInt) for mathematical operations.
  2. In order to ensure that the entered inputs are only numbers , a if condition is implemented to check the values. If the entered value is not a number then it would alert with(please enter a number).
Thorough this example we can add dynamic inputs and validate.

Hope this post was informative, would be adding some more post shortly.
