News Jan 26 2002:
I'm still getting quite a lot of email asking for Mozilla (Gecko/Netscape 6) support for DynAPI 1, and thankfully Robert Clary has posted his port of DynAPI 1 to Mozilla. For a drop in replacement to "dynapi-19991024.zip" download:
I am planning a complete replacement for this tutorial as well as a commercially supported set of widgets and tools that work along with DynAPI 2.9. Version 2.9 is my revamp of DynAPI2, it was released a short time ago and is available for download here. This is considered the latest developement version of DynAPI.
Please note that if you are using scripts and code explained in this tutorial it is not necessary for you to change your code around just to keep up with the latest releases of DynAPI 2. "If it ain't broken, don't fix it" is a good principle to go by. The topics covered and code explained in this tutorial are still great ways to create cross-browser scripts. But if you're interested in experimenting with the new features that DynAPI 2 brings, I encourage you to learn more about it at these sites:
