  7. <body>
  8. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  9. <div class="container-fluid">
  10. <a class="navbar-brand" href="">Sourcecodester</a>
  11. </div>
  12. </nav>
  13. <div class="col-md-3"></div>
  14. <div class="col-md-6 well">
  15. <h3 class="text-primary">JavaScript - To Do List App Source Code</h3>
  16. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  17. <div class="form-inline">
  18. <label>Add List</label>
  19. <br />

  27. </div>
  28. </body>
  29. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  30. </html>

  3. function addList(){
  4. var list = document.getElementById('list');
  5. var val = list.value;
  6. if(val == ""){
  7. alert("Please enter something first!");
  8. }else{
  9. lists.push(val.trim());
  10. list.value = '';
  11. displayList();
  12. }
  14. }
  16. function displayList(){
  17. var data = '';
  18. if(lists.length > 0){
  19. for(var i=0; i < lists.length; i++){
  20. data += "<li class='list-group-item'><button class='pull-right' onclick='removeList("+i+")'><span class='glyphicon glyphicon-trash'></span></button>"+lists[i]+"</li>";
  21. }
  22. }
  24. document.getElementById('result').innerHTML = data;
  25. }
  27. function removeList(list){
  28. lists.splice(list, 1);
  29. displayList();
  30. }
