DIV is not updated except after reloading the page

I have the following page which has the DIV statusblock where it should be getting some variables by executing an inline PHP script, but these variables are only updated after reloading the page manually and not based upon the first display of the file, the code I am use is:

<div class="ribbon" id="ribbon">
<strong class="ribboncontent" id="ribboncontent"><img src="../images/hassans.gif" alt="Hassans" width="150" height="75"></strong>
</div>
<div  id="statusblock">
       <p id="statusdata"><?php  $statusHeader = $_SESSION['statusHeader'];
                                 echo $statusHeader;
                          ?></p>
</div>
<div id="toolbarblock">
<div id="headertoolbar" class="ui-widget-header ui-corner-all">
<button id="logout">Logout</button>
<button id="settings">Settings</button>
</div>
  <ul id="toolbarmenu" >
    <li><a href="#">Open...</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Save</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Delete</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

                <script>
                 $( document ).ready(function() {
                        var $logout = $("#logout").button({ text: false, icons: { primary: "ui-icon-key" } });
                        var $settings = $("#settings").button({ text: false, icons: { primary: "ui-icon-gear", secondary: "ui-icon-triangle-1-s" } });
                        var $menu = $("#settings").parent().next().show();

                $(document).click(function() {
                        $menu.hide();
                $settings.removeClass("active");
                });
                $logout.click(function() {
                                      $.ajax({
                                              url: 'logout.php',
                                              type: 'POST',
                                              data: {},
                                              success: function(response){
                                               alert (response);
                                               $("#header").load("logo.php");
                                               $("#menu").load("menu.php");
                                               $("#main").load("login.php");
                                      }
                                      });

                        });
                $settings.click(function(evt) {
                        evt.stopImmediatePropagation();
                        $(this).toggleClass("active")
                        $menu.css("display", $(this).hasClass("active")?"block":"none");
                        $menu.position({ my: "left top", at: "left bottom", of: this });
                        });

                $settings.parent().buttonset().next().hide().menu();

                $menu.hover(function() {
                $(this).addClass("overme");
                }, function() {
                        if($(this).hasClass("overme")) {
                                $(this).hide();
                                $(this).removeClass("overme");
                                $settings.removeClass("active");
                                }
                        });

                $menu.click(function(evt) {
                        alert($(evt.target).text());
                        });
                });
                </script>

If this variables are php variables (session or not) it's normal, you need to do update the document object model (the page) by yourself

check back my last proposition in your previous question :

if response look like :
{
   connected:true,
   username:"leakim971",
   userIP:"127.0.0.1",
   priviliges:"root;of;course",
   sessionDate:"12/31/1969",
   sessionTime:"20:00:00"
}

Test pages :
- Connected : http://jsfiddle.net/H699A/
- Not connected : http://jsfiddle.net/H699A/1/

The following replace line 32 to
$.post("check_session.php", {}, function(response){
	$("#logged-username-value").html(response.username);
	$("#logged-userIP-value").html(response.userIP);
	$("#logged-priviliges-value").html(response.priviliges);
	$("#logged-sesssionDate-value").html(response.sesssionDate);
	$("#logged-sesssionTime-value").html(response.sesssionTime);
	$("#status-block").css("display", response.connected?"block":"none");
	$("#toolbar-block").css("display", response.connected?"block":"none");
});

So the response has to be an array as:
 $response = array();
 $response['connected']  = "true" ;
 $response['username']  = "leakim971" ;
 $response['userIP']  = "127.0.0.1" ;
 $response['priviliges']  = "root" ;
 $response['sessionDate']  = "12/31/1969" ;
 $response['sessionTime']  = "20:00:00" ;
 print_r($response);

Open in new window


Or as String:
$response="{";
$response=$response. "connected:true,";
$response=$response. 'username:"leakim971",';
$response=$response. 'userIP:"127.0.0.1",';
$response=$response. 'priviliges:"root;of;course",';
$response=$response. 'sessionDate:"12/31/1969",';
$response=$response. 'sessionTime:"20:00:00"';
$response=$response. "}";
echo $reponse;

should be json content :
<?php
 header('Content-type: application/json');
 $response = array();
 $response['connected']  = "true" ;
 $response['username']  = "leakim971" ;
 $response['userIP']  = "127.0.0.1" ;
 $response['priviliges']  = "root" ;
 $response['sessionDate']  = "12/31/1969" ;
 $response['sessionTime']  = "20:00:00" ;
 echo json_encode($response);
?>

your string, if valid, may be used too if the header is application/json

<?PHP
header('Content-type: application/json');

$response="{";
$response=$response. "connected:true,";
$response=$response. 'username:"leakim971",';
$response=$response. 'userIP:"127.0.0.1",';
$response=$response. 'priviliges:"root;of;course",';
$response=$response. 'sessionDate:"12/31/1969",';
$response=$response. 'sessionTime:"20:00:00"';
$response=$response. "}";
echo $reponse;
?>
