browser.alert(message)
a function that prints the message in a pop-up window. Returns None

browser.bind(target, event)
a function used as a decorator for event binding. Cf. section events.

browser.confirm(message)
a function that prints the message in a window, and two buttons (ok/cancel). Returns True if ok, False if cancel

browser.DOMEvent
the class of DOM events

browser.DOMNode

browser.load(script_url)
Load the Javascript library at address script_url.

This function uses a blocking Ajax call. It must be used when one can't load the Javascript library in the html page by <script src="prog.js"></script>.

The names inserted by the library inside the global Javascript namespace are available in the Brython script as attributes of the window object.

browser.prompt(message[,default])
a function that prints the message in a window, and an entry field. Returns the entered value ; if no value was entered, return default if defined, else the empty string

browser.run_script(src[, name])
this function executes the Python source code in src with an optional name. It can be used as an alternative to exec(), with the benefit that the indexedDB cache is used for importing modules from the standard library.

browser.window
an object that represents the browser window
