JavaScript to PHP

Posted 15 July 2011 - 09:03 AM

Is there a simple way to copy form data using Javascript into PHP variables so that I can add them to my database? The reason I'm doing it this way because the form will already have on function which redirects a user to paypal to pay. I don't want multiple buttons so I'm using Javascript to copy the form data into php. the submit button will then save the javascript/php content into the database as well as take the user to paypal to pay.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Take a look at using PHP with JSON (And AJAX). (There's an entire api online)

In Javascript, we can pull the values out of a form via your preferred method. I like jQuery myself. something like:

var data = $('#my-form').serialize();

    type: 'POST',
    url: '/path/to/file.php',
    data: data

And then handle it from the POST data over on the PHP side =)
