Obtener datos con Ajax (Colocar dentro de div)

I'm trying to add my data into a div, and its not working. The php is fine but I need a fine eye to see if they can spot any errors or can suggest any work arounds to help figure out why its not working.

I've tried to fix it for the past 5 hours or so and its racking my brains.

The user comments on a status like post and its suppose to add it to the div. Just like my main status does. The ajax for the main status is almost identical to the comment ajax below..yet the comment ahax isn't playing nice and is not inserting any data at all.

    $("form#mycommentform").submit(function() {
        var streamidcontent = $('#streamidcontent').val();
        var contents = $(this).children('#contents').val();

            type: "POST",
            url: "comment_add.php",
            cache: false,
            dataType: "json",
            data: { streamidcontent: streamidcontent, contents: contents}, 
            success: function(data){  
                $('#containerid').html('<div class="stream_comment_holder" style="display:none;"
                id="tgy"></div><div class="stream_comment"
                id="comment_'+data['comment_id']+'" style="margin-top:0px;"><table
                width=100%><tr><td valign=top width=30px><img
                style="border:none;padding:0px;display:inline;" border=\"0\"
                onerror="this.src=\"img/no_profile_img.jpeg\"" width=\"40\"
                height=\"40\" ></a><td valign=top align=left><a
                class="form"><form id="mycommentform" method="POST" 
                class="form_statusinput"><input type="hidden"  name="streamidcontent"
                id="streamidcontent" value="'+data['comment_streamitem']+'"><input
                type="text" name"contents" id="contents" placeholder="Say something"
                autocomplete="off"><input type="submit" id="button"
                value="Feed"></form></div><div class="stream_comment_holder"
                style="display:;"><div class="like_name"><b><a
                href="profile.php?username='+data['username']+'">You Like
        return false


success: function (data) {
error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {



$json = array();
$check = "SELECT comment_id, comment_datetime, comment_streamitem FROM streamdata_comments WHERE comment_streamitem=".$_POST['streamidcontent']."";
$check1 = mysqli_query($mysqli,$check);
$resultArr = mysqli_fetch_array($check1);
$json['comment_id'] = $resultArr['comment_id'];
$json['comment_streamitem'] = $resultArr['comment_streamitem'];

$check = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE id=".$_SESSION['id']."";
$check1 = mysqli_query($mysqli,$check);
$resultArr = mysqli_fetch_array($check1);
$json['username'] = $resultArr['username'];
$json['id'] = $resultArr['id'];
$json['first'] = $resultArr['first'];
$json['middle'] = $resultArr['middle'];
$json['last'] = $resultArr['last'];

echo json_encode($json);

Por favor, aplique una sangría a su código. -

That's better, but it's invalid syntax. (newliens in string literals) Just put in the actual code on your site. (if your actual code is not indented correctly, fix that first) -

Yes. Its fine on my site. :) No spaces allowed etc..etc. -

So if you replace the $('#containerid').html('...') con console.log(data) ¿Qué obtienes? -

I would also try to separate the success function call into its own separate function. Not sure why but sometimes that made the difference for me. -

I would recommend using some sort of templating system to do all the hard work assembling your content.

Echa un vistazo a Create a makeshift Javascript templating or De John Resig solución.

Building that string of mark-up inside html() is a little crude.

You also have an inline style of display:none on the first div, so you won't see it.

Have you tried stripping the function down just to see if anything gets populated

success: function(data){

Yes. I tried that method. With just my username. Still nothing. Trying some suggestions made. - Dave

is that success function actually getting called? insert an alert('Passed') in the success function or add an error handler success: function(){ alert('success'); }, error: function(){ alert('failure'); } - hilanderos

When I put success in..No popup. When I put in error it shows popup. Yet it shows in firebug those items being sent over to php and returns back all the values I ask to grab. - Dave

try this error: function(xhr, textStatus){ alert('request failed->'+textStatus); } - hilanderos

I don't know if this is the only problem, but where you're trying to embed quotation marks inside the html attributes that you're creating, e.g.:


It will produce this invalid string:


You should embed single quotes instead, like this:


Que produciría:


Also, on about the sixth last line you have an attribute missing an = firmar:


And the outer-most div you are inserting has style="display:none;".

Tried all your suggestions..still nothing. - Dave

From the comments above you've got more fundamental problems to solve first. Once you can get your success handler to fire luego you'll need to apply the fixes from my answer. - nnnnnn
