About JavaScript

JavaScript is a widely accepted, simple programming language that allows a Web site to be more interactive. Web sites can use JavaScript to perform many actions such has calculations, displaying dynamic navigation, and rotating through banner images. By using JavaScript, Web sites can be proactive by making a better internet experience.

An example use of JavaScript in Internet Banking is form validation. Validation is simply enforcing certain rules on different fields. When presented with a phone number field, JavaScript can alert the user if the phone number format is incorrect or if a value in the field is not a number. This allows the form to be filled out and submitted correctly the first time.

If JavaScript is not enabled, some or all of the Internet Banking features may not work. In most browsers, JavaScript is enabled through the adjustment in Security Settings. Please refer to the specific section for your browser by clicking on the link located in the index at the top of the page.
