Why does this code not work

$.ajax({
			type:"POST",
			url:'/aaMain/reports.php',
			data:{repType: myObj.attr('href').split('#')[1]
		},
			dataType:'json',
		success:function(responseText){
		// handle response
		$('#RepPage').html(responseText, function(){
		$('#RepPage').show();
		});
	}
});

Open in new window



BUT this code works?

var rt = $.ajax(
		{type:"POST",
		url:'/aaMain/reports.php',
		data:{repType: myObj.attr('href').split('#')[1]},
		dataType:'json',"async":false}).responseText;
		$('#RepPage').html(rt);
	        $('#RepPage').show();

In the first, add a hook to the error function and see if you are getting any errors.

Try with

async:false

Open in new window


without quotes


var rt = $.ajax(
		{type:"POST",
		url:'/aaMain/reports.php',
		data:{repType: myObj.attr('href').split('#')[1]},
		dataType:'json',async:false}).responseText;

the first one don't wait for the data and execture the lines of code below your ajax call (line 14 and so on...)
the second wait for the data before executing the lines of code below your ajax call  (line 6,7, and so on...)

Sorry for my previous post, i didn't understand wich one was not working:

in jQuery documentation i can't see any second parameter for html()

$('#RepPage').html(responseText, function(){
    $('#RepPage').show();
});

Open in new window


so probably this will work

$('#RepPage').html(responseText);
$('#RepPage').show();

Open in new window

"async":false
is correcter than
async:false

and I am sure you can do

$('#RepPage').html(responseText).show();
