Hello everyone,

I'd like to know whether the editing buttons in the Add New Topic page of this forume, such as , and BOLD etc, are made through HTML language or JavaScript and how to do so. I found in some web pages there are also several icon or buttons which can be dragged to the editing area. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance!
Regards, Ailsa Cape

If you look at the source of that page you'll see that JavaScript is involved. One of the great things about the web is that all of HTML, CSS and JavaScript are open for inspection - if you want to know how it's done, simply use the source.

An introduction to drag&drop can be found in chapter 12 of this handy introduction to javaScript.

Hi Ulf,

Thank you a lot! Your answer is really helpful. I should first learn the instrucation to drag&drop carefully and try to apply it in my application.
