Video: Passing Data Between PHP and JavaScript Using JSON


February 5, 2010

Got seven minutes to learn how you can harness the power of PHP, JavaScript and JSON in a powerful AJAX-driven web application? This Internet.com Video tutorial shows you all you need to know to pass data between the client and server using JSON data format.

  2. PHP responds to this request by converting an array to JSON format and sending the response to the Ajax-enabled web page.
  3. jQuery decodes the JSON-formatted data and updates the web page.
