JQuery Toggle Button that sets/resets database record

Posted on 2010-08-22
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi All,
I want to display a toggle button on a webpage, which changes colour and displays the words ON (Green button)  or OFF (Red button), dependant on the state of a database record behind the toggle button - with the database record toggling between on/off every time the button is pressed.
Many thanks
