Nitifying logged in user after function execution

P: 64
I have a database for posting a new record.
I have a field for status.
Every time a new record is added to the table the status for unread is 1 while that for read is 2.

I want a user to be notified while he/she is logged in by a sound or pop-up whenever a new record has been
added or when status has changed ie when an update takes place.


My update code is something like this:

$sql = 'UPDATE exportatltable SET Depot="'.$_POST["Depot"].'",
CustomerName="'.$_POST["CustomerName"].'",Address="'.$_POST["Address"].'",EmailAddress= "'.$_POST["EmailAddress"].'",
TotalPrice="'.$_POST["TotalPrice"].'",TruckDetails="'.$_POST["TruckDetails"].'",Destination= "'.$_POST["Destination"].'",
Currency="'.$_POST["Currency"].'",Narration="'.$_POST["Narration"].'",FinanceNote="'.$_POST["FinanceNote"].'",Status = 1, Date = Now() WHERE PfiNo="'.$_POST["PfiNo"].'"';
$query = mysql_query($sql);

I want a pop-up or sound or any other form of notification to any user logged in whenever
this code is executed successfully!

If you want it to be live, you'll need to use AJAX at predefined intervals. If you just want a notification upon page load, just query the database for new posts and, if there is at least one, display the notification.

And as for the sound... That'd be half-pointless, the other half being annoying.
