View Full Version : Dynamic Ajax Content can I send GET info?

06-13-2007, 05:02 PM
1) Script Title: Dynamic Ajax Content

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxcontent.htm

3) Describe problem: I was wondering if it is possible to set form data with this script to the ajax loaded page. Below is my code. I have the main page with a form, I need to send the GET data from the form to the external page i'm calling. For testing perposes the external page is a simple php script that prints out the GET values. In this case the GET values do not get passed to the external page. Can anyone explain how I pass the values from a form using GET?

Maint Script

<?php ?>
<script type="text/javascript">

Hello there..

I know this thread was started a long time ago, but i am having the same problem, and it seems like no one solved this thread, so instead of create a new one with the same issue, i decided to update this one.

Basically, i have a form, with the GET method, but i am not able to retrieve the values. Usually, using the GET method, i can get the values from the QueryStrings created from the form fields, but in this case, no value is passed...

If someone can help, please, i will appreciate it...
