Hi all,

I have a php page that calls another page using this code...

xmlhttp.open("GET","login.php",false);
xmlhttp.send();
document.getElementById("myDiv").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;

Open in new window


...what I'd like to do is call another page using variable value info returned from this page.

Thanks.

You can do that.  What is the question?

You would probably be better off using jQuery instead of trying to write the AJAX calls yourself.  Cross-browser, standard framework, etc.  jQuery has many advantages.

greetings   j789;  You get this back from the login.php ajax retrieve - xmlhttp.responseText , To take out the Text section of this string that has the "variable value" you want (a URL I guess) , , you will need to go through the  xmlhttp.response  Text and detect and separate the URL out of it. But you do not say what might be in this  xmlhttp.response for us to help you do that.
There are some better ways to get variables from returned ajax strings, using some other ways to set-up your ajax PHP script return to browser ajax.
please Ask questions if you need more information about this.

I have a "hello world" example of jQuery/AJAX in this article.  Maybe you could extend that concept to make another GET or POST request.
