jQuery post() method

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

Assuming we have following PHP content in result.php file,

Example

The following is the code snippet showing the usage of this method −

   <head>
      <script src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
       
      <script>
         $(document).ready(function() {
           
            $("#driver").click(function(event){
               
               $.post(
                  "result.php",
                  { name: "Ricky" },
                  function(data) {
                     $('#stage').html(data);
                  }
               );      
            });
         });
      </script>
   </head>
   
   <body>
   
      <p>Click on the button to load result.html file −</p>
       
      <div id = "stage" style = "background-color:cc0;">
         STAGE
      </div>
       
      <input type = "button" id = "driver" value = "Load Data" />
       
   </body>

jQuery get() method

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

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

<?php
if( $_REQUEST["name"] ) {

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

Example

The following is the code snippet showing the usage of this method −

   <head>
      <script src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
       
      <script>
         $(document).ready(function() {
           
            $("#driver").click(function(event){
               $.get(
                  "result.php",
                  { name: "John" },
                  function(data) {
                     $('#stage').html(data);
                  }
               );
            });
               
         });
      </script>    
   </head>    
   <body>
   
      <p>Click on the button to load result.html file</p>
       
      <span id = "stage" style = "background-color:#cc0;">
         STAGE
      </span>
       
      <div><input type = "button" id = "driver"
         value = "Load Data" /></div>
   
   </body>
