post( url, data, callback, type ) Method

« Previous Chapter Next Chapter »


The url, [data], [callback], [type] ) method loads a page from the server using a POST HTTP request.

The method returns XMLHttpRequest object.


Here is the simple syntax to use this method:


$.post( url, [data], [callback], [type] )


Here is the description of all the parameters used by this method:

  • url: A string containing the URL to which the request is sent

  • data:: This optional parameter represents key/value pairs or the return value of the .serialize() function that will be sent to the server.

  • callback:: This optional parameter represents a function to be executed whenever the data is loaded successfully.

  • type:: This optional parameter represents a type of data to be returned to callback function: "xml", "html", "script", "json", "jsonp", or "text".


Assuming we have following PHP content in /jquery/result.html file:


if( $_REQUEST["name"] )
   $name = $_REQUEST['name'];
   echo "Welcome ". $name;


   <script type="text/javascript"  src="../../js/jquery-2.2.0.js"></script>
   <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
  $(document).ready(function() {
             { name: "Sophia" },
             function(data) {
   <p>Click on the button to load result.html file:</p>
   <div id="stage" style="background-color:blue;">
   <input type="button" id="driver" value="Load Data" />
