In this tutorial we will create a Retrieve Data Without Page Refresh using Ajax. This code will retrieve the MySQLi table row when user submit the form inputs.The code use jQuery ajax to immediately retrieve MySQLi table row server without refreshing web page and display it as a readable data in HTML table. This is a user-friendly kind of program feel free user it in your program.

We will be using jQuery a JavaScript framework that design to simplify HTML DOM tree traversal and manipulation. It can retrieve DOM and manipulate each properties of an element based on different criteria such as id, class, etc.

Getting Started:

First you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that run PHP scripts. Here's the link for XAMPP server https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html.

And this is the link for the jquery that i used in this tutorial https://jquery.com/.

Lastly, this is the link for the bootstrap that i used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

Creating Database

Open your database web server then create a database name in it db_retrieve, after that click Import then locate the database file inside the folder of the application then click ok.

Creating the database connection

Open your any kind of text editor(notepad++, etc..). Then just copy/paste the code below then name it conn.php.

  1. <?php
  2. $conn = mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "db_retrieve") or die(mysqli_error());
  3. if(!$conn){
  4. die("Error: Failed to connect to database");
  5. }
  6. ?>

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create the forms simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang="en">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
  5. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
  6. </head>
  7. <body>
  8. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  9. <div class="container-fluid">
  10. <a class="navbar-brand" href="<a href="https://sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
  11. " rel="nofollow">https://sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
  12. </a> </div>
  13. </nav>
  14. <div class="col-md-3"></div>
  15. <div class="col-md-6 well">
  16. <h3 class="text-primary">PHP - Retrieve Data Without Page Refresh Using Ajax</h3>
  17. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  18. <div class="col-md-4">
  19. <form method="POST">
  20. <div class="form-group">
  21. <label>Firstname</label>
  22. <input type="text" id="firstname" class="form-control"/>
  23. </div>
  24. <div class="form-group">
  25. <label>Lastname</label>
  26. <input type="text" id="lastname" class="form-control"/>
  27. </div>
  28. <div class="form-group">
  29. <label>Age</label>
  30. <input type="number" min="0" max="200" id="age" class="form-control"/>
  31. </div>
  32. <div class="form-group">
  33. <label>Address</label>
  34. <input type="text" id="address" class="form-control"/>
  35. </div>
  36. <center><button type="button" id="save" class="btn btn-primary"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-save"></span> Save</button></center>
  37. </form>
  38. </div>
  39. <div class="col-md-8">
  40. <table class="table table-bordered">
  41. <thead class="alert-info">
  42. <th>Firstname</th>
  43. <th>Lastname</th>
  44. <th>Age</th>
  45. <th>Address</th>
  46. </thead>
  47. <tbody id="data" style="background-color:#fff;"></tbody>
  48. </table>
  49. </div>
  50. </div>
  51. <script src="js/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
  52. <script src="js/bootstrap.js"></script>
  53. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  54. </body>
  55. </html>

Creating the Save Query

This code contains the save function of the application. This code will store the form data to MySQLi database. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as save.php.

  1. <?php
  2. require 'conn.php';
  3.  
  4. $firstname = $_POST['firstname'];
  5. $lastname = $_POST['lastname'];
  6. $age = $_POST['age'];
  7. $address = $_POST['address'];
  8.  
  9. mysqli_query($conn, "INSERT INTO `member` VALUES('', '$firstname', '$lastname', '$age', '$address')") or die(mysqli_error());
  10.  
  11. echo "Save Data";
  12. ?>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will immediately display MySQLi table when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as shown below
data.php

  1. <?php
  2. require 'conn.php';
  3.  
  4. if(ISSET($_POST['res'])){
  5. $query = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * FROM `member` ORDER BY `lastname` ASC") or die(mysqli_error());
  6. while($fetch = mysqli_fetch_array($query)){
  7. echo
  8. "<tr>
  9. <td>".$fetch['firstname']."</td>
  10. <td>".$fetch['lastname']."</td>
  11. <td>".$fetch['age']."</td>
  12. <td>".$fetch['address']."</td>
  13. </tr>";
  14. }
  15. }
  16. ?>

script.js
Note: To make the script works make sure you save this file inside the js directory.

  1. $(document).ready(function(){
  2. displayData();
  3.  
  4. $('#save').on('click', function(){
  5. var firstname = $('#firstname').val();
  6. var lastname = $('#lastname').val();
  7. var age = $('#age').val();
  8. var address = $('#address').val();
  9.  
  10. if($('#firstname').val() == "" || $('#lastname').val() == "" || $('age').val() == "" || $('address').val()){
  11. alert("Please complete the required field");
  12. }else{
  13. $.ajax({
  14. type: 'POST',
  15. url: 'save.php',
  16. data: {
  17. firstname: firstname,
  18. lastname: lastname,
  19. age: age,
  20. address: address
  21. },
  22. success: function(data){
  23. $('#firstname').val('');
  24. $('#lastname').val('');
  25. $('#age').val('');
  26. $('#address').val('');
  27. alert(data);
  28. displayData();
  29. }
  30. })
  31. }
  32. });
  33.  
  34. function displayData(){
  35. $.ajax({
  36. type: 'POST',
  37. url: 'data.php',
  38. data: {res: 1},
  39. success: function(data){
  40. $('#data').html(data)
  41. }
  42. });
  43. }
  44. });
