• JQuery get data and send to PHP instantaneously

    I’m in the process of planning to create a page with PHP and Jquery.

    What I want to do is get jquery to submit the data from each input box as soon as the user types it to a PHP file and then return the results from the PHP on the same page without refreshing. (This process continues as the user manipulates the data on the text boxes).

    Simple. Decide what action you want to trigger the event on, it can be onkeyup, or on blur etc – that’s for you to decide, then bind an event, for example, on blur would be

    $("#firstname").blur(function() {
    
    getResultsfromajax();
    
    });
    
    function getResultsfromajax() {
    $.ajax({//options});
    OR
    $.post([url], [data]);
    OR
    $.get([url], [data]);
    
    }
    

    Of course, you’d want to give your input ID’s to bind them to jQuery like I did above.

    (yes, this advice doesn’t give you a complete answer, but I’ve given you enough for you to hopefully research, you’ll learn more this way than just a complete code example.)
