Ajax call to server using jquery

Hello.  Am new to jquery and ajax.  I need to make an ajax call that will add or remove a user's favorite location on click.  The two values are passed in json: result and locationcode.  This is what I have so far, not sure how to construct the rest:


$('.add-remove-button').bind('click',function(){
		$.post(
			
		);
});

Open in new window

The docs for the $.post function are here: http://docs.jquery.com/Ajax/jQuery.post

But basically, your script will look something like this:

$('.add-remove-button').bind('click',function(){
  $.post('/path/to/script.php', data, function(resp) {
    alert(resp);
  });
});

data is just a variable here that contains the data you want to post to the script, and function(resp) is the callback function that is triggered when the request completes.  The body of the response is passed into the function as the first parameter, in this case I've used resp as the variable name.  Ideally you'd return the status of the save and alert the user if something went wrong.
