Hello,

I am looking for a script to update an MSSQL Record when a user clicks a button on a page without reloading the page - is this possible to achieve?

Thanks in advance!

You need to look into AJAX. You'll still need an endpoint on the server that can accept the async request. How you set this up will depend on what framework you are using to build your site.

You would need to use ajax to call a code behind page like asp/php/.net etc
$("#mybutton").click(function() {
    var mydata = $("#mytextfield").val();
    $.ajax({   
       type: 'POST',   
       url: 'update_record.php',   
       data: {mydata:mydata }
    });
  });

Open in new window

In this example you have a button on a form with an ID of mybutton, a text field with an id of mytextfield and a php page with the name of update_record.php which is accepting a form element of mydata.  You would just adjust this accordingly and modify your update_record.php to accept what you need.  Then have that page update your DB.
