Advice on AJAX Please

100+
P: 348
Hello,

I am really new to AJAX but can see the benefits to using it. I downloaded a really nice ajax tab module and started to populate the divs that hold the data within the tab.

What I want to do now is to use AJAX to fetch data from the database and then display that data in my input fields inside the tab.

I have already written all of the PHP that gets the data from the database but I'm lost on where to start with AJAX. What I need from AJAX is a single POST var to be handed off to my PHP script. When the data comes back, it should have 7 columns. I need those 7 columns to populate the coorasponding input tags.

Can someone point me to a tutorial or give me something to serch for?


Thanks,
Frank

Try this to get started.

For the 7 columns problem, use a unique delimiter (if using a string only), or use JSON/XML and parse the response.
