(For those of you who have no clue what AJAX is, here’s a link: AJAX tutorial. Google’s Gmail and A9.com are taking this quite far)
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to point out another way to do the same thing.
<a href=”codepage.php?var=value” target=”divName”> Click here to load VAR</a>
- Let the browsers do what they’re good at! Fetching and displaying data.
- Not just XML but any form of data, specially binary data can also be retreived on-the-fly.
To explain 3:
<a href=”nextCar.png” target=”imageID”> Next Car </a>
The same dynamics work for any HTML tag.
Another option can be to set not just the default property but ANY property of ANY HTML element.
<a href=”divStyle.php” target=”DivID.Style”>Change
I’d love to see comments on this post. Tell me if I’m mistaken. Tell others if I’m right.
