I'm a complete noob to Javascript and haven't done much programming in 15+ years, mainly autolisp. I have manage to get a map up and running using the identify with popup sample. http://www.geoiddata.com/pleasanton.html. My question is how do I limit the zoom in level so that I don't get the map data unavailable in background.

I also wanted a scale bar so I stuck in the following (bold text):

      function mapReady(map){

         var scalebar = new esri.dijit.Scalebar({
            map: map,
       //create identify tasks and setup parameters 
       identifyTask = new esri.tasks.IdentifyTask("http://www.geoiddata.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Pleasanton/Pleasanton/MapServer");
       identifyParams = new esri.tasks.IdentifyParameters();
       identifyParams.tolerance = 3;
       identifyParams.returnGeometry = true;
       identifyParams.layerIds = [3,4];
       identifyParams.layerOption = esri.tasks.IdentifyParameters.LAYER_OPTION_ALL;
       identifyParams.width  = map.width;
       identifyParams.height = map.height;
       //resize the map when the browser resizes
       dojo.connect(dijit.byId('map'), 'resize', map,map.resize);

It works, but is that the best place to insert the scale bar code?
