I want to create a page that i can create a grid system to divide the page into seprate areas.

I dont mind which ajax framework is used but i will be using PHP and MYSQL to save the poistion into a DB.

Is there any examples of this using ajax that anyone can point me at.

SAJAX is quite simple

http://absinth.modernmethod.com/sajax/ and has examples

All you have to is define the initial javascript function and a callback function to process the result.
	function multiply($x, $y) {
		return $x * $y;
	// $sajax_debug_mode = 1;
	function do_multiply_cb(z) {
		document.getElementById("z").value = z;
	function do_multiply() {
		// get the folder name
		var x, y;
		x = document.getElementById("x").value;
		y = document.getElementById("y").value;
		x_multiply(x, y, do_multiply_cb);
	<input type="text" name="x" id="x" value="2" size="3">
	<input type="text" name="y" id="y" value="3" size="3">
	<input type="text" name="z" id="z" value="" size="3">
	<input type="button" name="check" value="Calculate"
		onclick="do_multiply(); return false;">
