I am creating a web interface for an app with these steps:
1. Server generates HTML doc, tracking the id of active elements in a map
2. When the user clicks an active element, the client sends a XMLHttpRequest with the id to the server
3. Server generates a response using the map and other info, sends back to the client either a
Cool, thanks to both; this has really helped to clean up my code.
Now i'm returning the following to the client when a new document is required:
and this works in both firefox and IE.
FYI - This page works a table (changing details, adding/deleting rows etc) where most can be done with ajax, but when a different view is required (different rows), I need to render the new page, so that is where this comes in. Although I am cheating a bit as I am sorting on the server which perhaps I shouldn't.
