Using Mootools Request.HTML response Javascript using $exec

Javascript frameworks are great, no matter which one you use their all built to do more, quickly.

I use Mootools for most of my JS needs, and something is I often use is the AJAX request functionality.

Today I needed to send not only HTML back, but Javascript.

Here are the steps I needed to follow to not only return my Javascript, but to attach it to my response with the Mootools function ‘$exec’

My HTML

Update

My Mootoold Javascript

	

Our Request Handler PHP script





< ?php

	/* QUERY OUR RECORDS FROM OUR GET DATA */

	$response = mysql_get_data_function($_GET);

	echo($response);

?>

Final Response

After running this ‘update’ script, we will have displayed information based on our GET data in the div ‘container’, removed our update link, shown a success message, and styled everything with out response javascript, all thanks to our nifty Mootools $exec function.
