How to use GET method to send data in jQuery Ajax?

The jQuery.get( url, [data], [callback], [type] ) method loads data from the server using a GET HTTP request.

Here is the description of all the parameters used by this method −

  • url − A string containing the URL to which the request is sent
  • data − This optional parameter represents key/value pairs that will be sent to the server.
  • callback − This optional parameter represents a function to be executed whenever the data is loaded successfully.
  • type − This optional parameter represents type of data to be returned to callback function: "xml", "html", "script", "json", "jsonp", or "text".

Assuming we have the following PHP content in result.php file −

if( $_REQUEST["name"] ) {

   $name = $_REQUEST['name'];
   echo "Welcome ". $name;


Here's the code snippet to implement GET method in jQuery −

      <script src = ""></script>
         $(document).ready(function() {
                  { name: "Zara" },
                  function(data) {
      <p>Click on the button to load result.html file −</p>
      <span id = "stage" style = "background-color:#cc0;">
      <div><input type = "button" id = "driver"
         value = "Load Data" /></div>
