JavaScript FAQ

Answers to Questions about…
How do I …
with JavaScript/JScript… detect whether JavaScript support has been disabled?

Common sense says that if you’re going to detect if JavaScript is disabled, you’d better do it in something besides JavaScript! Check instead to see if scripting is enabled.

You might, for instance, use something like document.location = 'java_page.html' to redirect the browser to a new, script-laden page. Failure to redirect implies that JavaScript is unavailable, in which case you can either resort to CGI ro utines or insert appropriate code between the <NOSCRIPT> tags. (NOTE: NOSCRIPT is only available in Netscape Navigator 3.0 and up.)
