Hi all,
I have a page with some simple Ajax code on it, its called a number of time to populate elements on the page. The probem is that if one ajax call is running when another starts up, it cancels the first out... anyone know of a way around this?

Here is the code im using: (If I stick an alert() at the start to force a delay it works ok, but thats not really an idea solution).

function sndReq() {
   theTarget = htmltarget
myRand=parseInt(Math.random()*99999999);
   http.open('get', 'http://www.domain.com/');
   http.onreadystatechange = handleResponse;
   http.send(null);
}

function handleResponse() {
 if(http.readyState == 4 && http.status == 200){
       var response = http.responseText;

           document.getElementById(theTarget).innerHTML = response;

   }
}

The problem is that you use only ONE http object for multyple http requests.
Create multiple http Objects with different names and use each for its particular request and response.

Otherwise, store in a global variable, the number of times the call to be made. Later you can make multiple calls here

var noOfCalls=get The Number Of Calls;
var calStatus=0;

function handleResponse() {
 if(http.readyState == 4 && http.status == 200){
       var response = http.responseText;

           document.getElementById(theTarget).innerHTML = response;
           calStatus++;
           if(calStatus<noOfCalls){ sndReq(); }

   }
}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Make the http_request a local variable.  That will mean every time you make a new request, a new instance of that local variable appears.

function sndReq() {
   var http;
   if (window.XMLHttpRequest){
      http = new XMLHttpRequest();
   } else if (window.ActiveXObject) {
      try {
         http = new ActiveXObject('Msxml2.XMLHTTP');
      } catch (e) {      
         try {
            http = new ActiveXObject('Microsoft.XMLHTTP');
         } catch (e) {}
      }
   }
   theTarget = htmltarget
   myRand=parseInt(Math.random()*99999999);
   http.open('get', 'http://www.domain.com/');
   http.onreadystatechange = function(){handleResponse(http);};
   http.send(null);
}

function handleResponse(httpObject) {
 if(httpObject.readyState == 4 && httpObject.status == 200){
       var response = httpObject.responseText;

           document.getElementById(theTarget).innerHTML = response;

   }
}
