I thought before I do my next screencast with pagination I would do an introduction with Jquery Ajax.
I thought trying to explain it all in one screencast would be quite long so I have broken it down to 4. This first one explains on how easy Jquery can be to setup and some tools you mind find usefull.
Screencast Time: 11:30
Download Firephp Library here .
// // Define Ajax Request define('IS_AJAX', isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH']) && strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH']) == 'xmlhttprequest'); //
Helpful Ajax Testing Tools & Setup:
- Firephp – FirePHP enables you to log to your Firebug Console using a simple PHP method call. Free
- Charles – Charles is an HTTP proxy / HTTP monitor / Reverse Proxy that enables a developer to view all of the HTTP and SSL / HTTPS traffic between their machine and the Internet. This includes requests, responses and the HTTP headers. Cost $50.00
- Fiddler – Fiddler is a HTTP Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect all HTTP Traffic, set breakpoints, and “fiddle” with incoming or outgoing data. Cost: Free.
- Jquery Visual – Sometimes you just cant beat seeing how something actually work!
