Javascript – Passing parameters to a JQuery function

functionhtmljavascriptjqueryparameters

I'm creating HTML with a loop that has a column for Action. That column
is a Hyperlink that when the user clicks calls a JavaScript
function and passes the parameters…

example:

<a href="#" OnClick="DoAction(1,'Jose');" > Click </a>
<a href="#" OnClick="DoAction(2,'Juan');" > Click </a>
<a href="#" OnClick="DoAction(3,'Pedro');" > Click </a>
...
<a href="#" OnClick="DoAction(n,'xxx');" > Click </a>

I want that function to call an Ajax jQuery function with the correct
parameters.

Any help?

Best Solution

Using POST

function DoAction( id, name )
{
    $.ajax({
         type: "POST",
         url: "someurl.php",
         data: "id=" + id + "&name=" + name,
         success: function(msg){
                     alert( "Data Saved: " + msg );
                  }
    });
}

Using GET

function DoAction( id, name )
{
     $.ajax({
          type: "GET",
          url: "someurl.php",
          data: "id=" + id + "&name=" + name,
          success: function(msg){
                     alert( "Data Saved: " + msg );
                   }
     });
}

EDIT:

A, perhaps, better way to do this that would work (using GET) if javascript were not enabled would be to generate the URL for the href, then use a click handler to call that URL via ajax instead.

<a href="/someurl.php?id=1&name=Jose" class="ajax-link"> Click </a>
<a href="/someurl.php?id=2&name=Juan" class="ajax-link"> Click </a>
<a href="/someurl.php?id=3&name=Pedro" class="ajax-link"> Click </a>
...
<a href="/someurl.php?id=n&name=xxx" class="ajax-link"> Click </a>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
   $('.ajax-link').click( function() {
         $.get( $(this).attr('href'), function(msg) {
              alert( "Data Saved: " + msg );
         });
         return false; // don't follow the link!
   });
});
</script>
