Lesson 10

  1. 1. Front-End Web Development Lesson 10 Arrays
  2. 2. Agenda ● ● ● ● ● ● Pizza Review Divided Times Collection of Data Manipulating Collections Lab Introduction to Final Project
  3. 3. Divided Times Class examples The GA solution
  4. 4. Collections of Data What if we had a collection of images that we wanted to display to the screen, one at a time? How could we store all the images?
  5. 5. Collections of Data var image_1 = “images/image_1.jpg”; var image_2 = “images/image_2.jpg”; var image_3 = “images/image_3.jpg”; var image_4 = “images/image_4.jpg”; var image_5 = “images/image_5.jpg”;
  6. 6. Collections of Data
  7. 7. Arrays An array provides a simple organized way to track a list of related items. Think of a array like a … ● toaster ● shopping list ● file cabinet
  8. 8. Declaring Arrays First Option: Declaring an empty array using the array constructor. var myArr = new Array();
  9. 9. Declaring Arrays Second Option: Declaring an empty array using literal notation. var myArr = [ ];
  10. 10. Declaring Arrays myArr = [‘Hello’, 54.3, true]; ● ● Arrays are filled with elements Elements can be strings, numbers or booleans
  11. 11. Declaring Arrays myArr = [ ‘Sunday’, ‘Monday’, ‘Tuesday’, ‘Wednesday’, ‘Thursday’, ‘Friday’, ‘Saturday’ ];
  12. 12. Declaring Arrays If you leave a blank spot in an array it creates a blank shelf space, an undefined placeholder.
  13. 13. Array Indexing
  14. 14. Array Indexing Array elements can be fetched by their index number (starts from 0). Elements can be viewed in the JavaScript console. console.log(myArr[0]); // prints Sunday
  15. 15. Code Along arrays.html
  16. 16. Array Indexing We can insert new values into any space in the array using the positions index. myArr[4] = ‘Humpday’;
  17. 17. Array Indexing We can overwrite all the elements of an array simply by giving the array new values or by setting an array equal to a different array.
  18. 18. Array Indexing var fruits = ['Apples', 'Oranges', 'Pears', 'Grapes']; myArr = fruits; console.log(myArr); // prints Apples, Oranges, Pears, Grapes
  19. 19. Array Length What if you would like to know how long the array is (how many elements)? console.log(myArr.length); // prints 4
  20. 20. Manipulating Collections How to iterate over an array: fruits.forEach(function(element,index){ console.log(element,index); });
  21. 21. Assignment Create an array of sports teams and print them to the page. Examples: AFC East Standings NBA Atlantic Standings MLB American League East Standings
  22. 22. Lab Description: Students create a basic image carousel using arrays and .each jQuery function. Hint: Go to the API documentation at jquery. com to review the documentation and practice examples of the .each() function.
  23. 23. Lab Notes: ● Students can decide to use the provided photos of food or animals or pull photos from another location. ● Students will use the .click() method to navigate between pictures.
  24. 24. Lab Instructions: ● The first part of this exercise is timed! ● ● Create the HTML for the page (15 minutes) Add CSS to style the page (15 minutes)
  25. 25. Lab After 30 minutes, provide students with HTML/CSS starter code. The remainder of the time should be used to implement the JavaScript code. This exercise will carry over into next session.
  26. 26. Lab Bonus: They will use the change event to give a ranking to the photos between 1 and 5. The user should be forwarded to the next image after voting.
  27. 27. Introduction to Final Project Description: ● Design and build a website of your choice
  28. 28. Introduction to Final Project Objectives: ● Demonstrate understanding of all topics ● Apply knowledge to build a website from the ground up ● Create an efficient website compatible with modern browsers and devices
