New to xajax/javascript = problem

Hello!

I'm trying to put a javascript variable into a PHP variable using xajax. But I can´t get it to work.

Error msg:

Fatal error: Class 'xajaxResponse' not found in /home/web9905/domains/domain.com/public_html/xajax/multiply.php on line 23

What am I doing wrong?
<?php
require("xajax/xajax_core/xajax.inc.php");

You need to initialize xajax. Put this after you include xajax on line 2:

$xajax = new xajax();
$xajax->registerFunction("MyPHPFunction");
$xajax->processRequest();

Within HTML HEAD you need this:

<?php $xajax->printJavascript(); ?>

This sets up the xajax javascript helper functions.

Hi again and thank you! :)

Now I get this pop-up error msg:

Error: the xajax Javascript component could not be included. Perhaps the URL is incorrect? URL: xajax_js/xajax_core.js

I dont know why =(

the require path at line 2 is correct... one of the xajax example's worked so there is no file missing in the framework.
<?php
require("xajax/xajax_core/xajax.inc.php");
$xajax = new xajax();
$xajax->registerFunction("MyPHPFunction");
$xajax->processRequest();
echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>'

        <?

        function MyPHPFunction($jsVar) {
            $variable = strtoupper($jsVar);
            $objResponse = new xajaxResponse();
            $objResponse->script("PHPvar = '$variable';");
            return $objResponse;
        }
        ?>

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

Roger BaklundCommented:
Line 17 must be there.

Because xajax is not stored directly in the folder where your script is located, you need to configure the path. Try this:

$xajax = new xajax();
$xajax->configure('javascript URI','xajax/');
$xajax->registerFunction("MyPHPFunction");
$xajax->processRequest();

Your line 22 is wrong... you are calling the PHP function from PHP.

Put this in the HTML instead:

<button onclick="xajax_MyPHPFunction('Hello world!');">Test</button>
<button onclick="alert(PHPvar);">Show result</button>

Also, line 21 should be "<?php", not just "<?". It might work on your server, but some servers does not accept the short start tag.

Thanks a lot! All of that worked like a charm!

Last thing...

I have a lot of PHP code, how do I actually put the testVar variable to a PHP variable?

Sorry for being a noob!

Your help really means a lot to me!
<?php
require("xajax/xajax_core/xajax.inc.php");
$xajax = new xajax();
$xajax->configure('javascript URI','xajax/');
$xajax->registerFunction("MyPHPFunction");
$xajax->processRequest();
echo '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>'

Just remove the quotes:

<button onclick="xajax_MyPHPFunction(testVar);">Test</button>

...but now the strtoupper() PHP function does not make much sense... for testing, change it like this:

$variable = $jsVar * 2;

...and remove the quotes in the PHP response, because it is now an integer, not a string:

$objResponse->script("PHPvar = $variable;");

To write to the someID div, add this to the response object:

            $objResponse->assign('someID','innerHTML',"Result: $variable");
