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 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;">
