All the examples provided up to now in our tutorials have dealt with traditional scenarios: Usually a web form, PHP objects generated by POG and some plumbing code that joins them together. In this article, we’ll demonstrate how POG can also easily be used with an AJAX UI to create a simple to-do list. But first, if you’re not familiar with concepts related to AJAX, we recommend that you read this short article which gives a 30 second AJAX tutorial.
Using POG and AJAX is not much different than using POG and regular HTML or XHTML, because essentially, in both cases, you’re dealing with PHP objects in the back-end. Whatever happens in the front-end, whether there’s a server post-back or not, is quite irrelevant. For example, let’s say you’ve created a form that captures to-do items that are used to build a to-do list. The method used to post the input to the PHP objects doesn’t really matter, as long as they’re passed correctly. In the examples provided in our tutorials, we use plain html forms and server post-backs to pass the required information. In this current article, we’ll use AJAX.
Take a look at the live example below:
- Extract the zipped file into a folder on your server.
- Edit configuration.php with your database details.
- Run /setup/index.php and complete the 3 steps.
- Finally run /index.php and you should be able to add items to your to-do list.
We hope this provides somewhat of an overview of how POG can be used with AJAX web applications as well as traditional web applications. Whichever method you choose or prefer is your personal choice.
