 Small Ajax example

Tomas NielsenPost date: 2007-01-09 23:57

I found this on JavaScriptKit. It shows a nice way of including html on an already loaded page.

function HttpRequest(url){
var pageRequest = false //variable to hold ajax object
   @if (@_jscript_version >= 5)
      try {
      pageRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
      catch (e){
         try {
         pageRequest = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
         catch (e2){
         pageRequest = false

if (!pageRequest && typeof XMLHttpRequest != 'undefined')
   pageRequest = new XMLHttpRequest()

if (pageRequest){ //if pageRequest is not false'GET', url, false) //get page synchronously

function embedpage(request){
//if viewing page offline or the document was successfully retrieved online (status code=2000)
if (window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1 || request.status==200)

HttpRequest("external.htm") //include "external.htm" onto current page

Note that Dominos form-tags can mess around with the Ajax-implementation in IE6. You´ll need to strip the form-tags from Domino html-output before pushing it into a div.

This is true if you decide to return the complete rendered markup, most XHR implementations I have done either return JSON or XML... and sometimes just a js function call, then this isn't a problem.

If you want to return the complete rendered page, you have more things to take care of besides the form element... the html/head/body and so on are all elements that should only exist one time for a page to be considered valid (among other things)…

True indeed. However it "works" within IE with head/body tag and such. But it doesnt even work to render it if the div contains a form-tag.
