Assignment 2
Create a webpage:
Create an HTML file called users.html that contains a form with a button tag (you should not use a
submit input here as we are not sending anything to the server). The HTML file should contain a form
asking for the following inputs:
– Name (type: textbox)
– Email (type: email)
– Birthday: (type: date)
Each time the user clicks on the button, the new user should be added to the HTML file (you do not
need a database here, you may simply add to the DOM). The age of the current users and a row
containing the average ages should also be displayed. For example, after entering three users,
something like this should be displayed on your page:
Name Email Birthday Age
Jane Doe [email protected] 1990-10-03 30
Joe Smith [email protected] 1985-06-07 35
Steve Smith [email protected] 1994-12-12 25
The average age of users is 30.667.
In addition, add three buttons that will allow the user to display the users in sorted order of each of the
inputs described earlier. For example, clicking on the “SORT by BIRTHDAY” will now display the names
Name Email Birthday Age
Steve Smith [email protected] 1994-12-12 25
Jane Doe [email protected] 1990-10-03 30
Joe Smith [email protected] 1985-06-07 35
The average age of users is 30.667.
They could also be sorted from smallest to largest. Please write your own JavaScript comparator for the
sort function.
Include a CSS style that changes the default look of the browser. In this assignment, you are free to play
around with CSS frameworks that will make the application look more consistent and more responsive
to user input.
