Magic from the JavaScript console: [WayBackAutomated clicking on HTML elements – Chee Wee’s blog: IT solutions for Singapore and companies worldwide.

This is the code he uses because [WayBackgetElementsByClassName returns an array ([WayBack] getElementById returns one reference or null, but many sites still develop without assigning an ID to their elements):

You can play it on [WayBack] JavaScript Equality Table Game: Find out how well you know (or don’t know) the JavaScript == operator rules

Every time I try, I’m reminded of: You Don’ t Know JavaScript

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/05

I forgot how I originally bumped into the book series, but every time I try to program in JavaScript I’m reminded of them: You Don’ t Know JavaScript.
