Default JavaScript vs JQuery

Which one should I learn? Does it matter? (I mean if I learn JQuery wouldn't I also essentially know JavaScript and visa versa?)

JQuery is just a JavaScript library. It can do most things that you would do "by hand" in JavaScript, but not all. I honestly don't see how you could effectively use JQuery without knowing JavaScript.

Now a question for you: WHY did you post this in an ASP.NET 3.5 forum??? It has nothing at all to do with ASP.NET, you know. Unless you think you might write some custom ASP.NET GUI components that would be rendered in the browser via JQuery???

Where would you like me to post?

Yea... JavaScript has nothing to do with ASP.NET but ASP.NET has something to do with JavaScript.

CSS has nothing to do with ASP.NET but ASP.NET has something to do with CSS.

HTML has nothing to do with ASP.NET but ASP.NET has something to do with HTML.

You know what I mean.

With that reasoning, Wrox could remove all forum categories and replace them with a single one called Programming. Or even more generic: Computers. In that category each and every post would fit perfectly. ;-)

Bottom line: the more specialised the forum you choose, the better answers you get....

Cheers,

Imar

oops. I just scrolled down near the bottom and found a forum called JavaScript. I should have posted there. I didn't see that before. I found my answer though, its this:
