Hi all,

I need some example code to be able to get some info from an api.

This is what I've got from the api:

Method is:

http://www.mydomain.com/api/set/

and

http://www.mydomain.com/api/get/

Parameters/ Example Request

{
    'site': 'mysite',
    'id': 'some_id',
    'stage': 2,
}

and for the get

{
    'site': 'mysite',
    'id': 'some_id',
}

example resplonses would be:

for set:

{"status": "successful", "data": {}}

and for get:

{"status": "successful", "data": {stages: [1,1,0,1]}}


I just need some client code to get and set the information from the api ...

Hope all this info helps as it's all I have.

Thanks

check jquery ajax
http://viralpatel.net/blogs/2009/04/jquery-ajax-tutorial-example-ajax-jquery-development.html
http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/

for example, for get

$.get(
    "http://www.mydomain.com/api/get/",
    "{
        'site': 'mysite',
        'id': 'some_id',
    }",
    function(data) { alert(eval(data).status); }
);


Similarly for set

OK, I've done the above and to call the function added this:

<input type="button" value="Click Here" onClick="data();">

but nothing happens ... anything I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

As for your question;  What is data ...

I got it from your code:

$.get(
    "http://www.mydomain.com/api/get/",
    "{
        'site': 'mysite',
        'id': 'some_id',
    }",
    function(data) { alert(eval(data).status); }
);

function(data)  <-- so I guess the function was called data?

no this function is not data.
In fact this is an anonymous callback handler

You need to put your get handler in data method to call it that way

function data()
{
 $.get(
    "http://www.mydomain.com/api/get/",
    "{
        'site': 'mysite',
        'id': 'some_id',
    }",
    function(data) { alert(eval(data).status); }
);
   
}

What is the actual URL of the web service?  Please post some test data so we can test the code to access the service.  Thanks.

Well, if you can't post the actual URL, at least take the time to set up a test case that works the same way.  You're asking us for assistance - it would seem reasonable that you would give the fellow experts something more tangible than "please help me get my data right and btw, I will not let you see you my data."
