Well, I have been curious about how the whole "how to update pages without refreshing"... I googled AJAX (I've seen many jobs wanting AJAX experience) out of curiosity to find that AJAX is responsible for this ability. I went ahead and found a simple tutorial on how it works with an elemtary script. So I fired up my WAMP (my LAMP is unavailable) and gave it a shot.
Here is the script: http://ngz2.ath.cx:88/ajax/form.html
I setup the database and it works as it should... Well, it didn't take long to see the possibilities here, unfortunately, I know next to nothing about JS.
My question is, how can I use this type of script to update regular text? Say like inside a div layer or in a table, stuff like that.
