Urgent: Ajax, passing multiple parameters

Recommended Posts


I'm having some trouble making an ajax-script more flexible so I can use the same script over and over again without having to hard-code it every time.

function getXMLHttp(){
var xmlHttp
//Firefox, Opera 8.0+, Safari
xmlHttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
//Internet Explorer
xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
xmlHttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
alert("Your browser does not support AJAX!")
return false;
return xmlHttp;

function MakeRequest(phpfile, targetdiv){
var xmlHttp = getXMLHttp();
xmlHttp.onreadystatechange = function(){
if(xmlHttp.readyState == 4){
HandleResponse(xmlHttp.responseText, targetdiv);
xmlHttp.open("GET", phpfile , true);
function HandleResponse(response, divtag){
document.getElementById(divtag).innerHTML = response;

The problem is getting the "targetdiv"/"divtag" to work. The script works well if I just use "document.getElementById('mydivtag').innerHTML=response;"

I've been googling for a while, and had a quick search here on the forum but I didn't find anything of value...

Thanks for your attention!

Best Regards
