This lesson will help u to check the user available or not so i write the lesson to my readers using few lines of  jquey,ajax & php,mysql  code.

Step 1


add this jquery plugin script inside the <HEAD> tag
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.2.6.min.js"></script>

Step 2

i am writing the bellow code to user enters the name in input box and change to next input the ajax request will start the request using given url in ajax URL property usernamecheck.php and get response in message box. just place the bellow code inside the <HEAD>tag.

<script type="text/javascript">


$("#username").change(function() { 

$("#message").html('<img src="images/loader.gif" align="absmiddle">');

    type: "POST",  
    url: "usernamecheck.php",
    data: "username="+ $("#username").val(),  
    success: function(msg){  

   $("#message").ajaxComplete(function(event, request, settings){

if(isset($_POST['username'])) {

$username= $_POST['username'];

mysql_connect("localhost","username","password") or die ("Unable to connect to Localhost");

mysql_select_db("database") or die ("Could not select the database.");

$getusers=mysql_query("select username from users where username='".$username."'");

if(mysql_num_rows($getusers))  {

  1. You should keep the HTML within the jQuery, instead of echoing at one point some HTML and on another point just "yes". Keep it with true or false, and keep the html that needs to be implemented into you jQuery. In small projects this won't be giving any problems, but once you go bigger it's way harder to find all your content.

    Nevertheless it's a good tutorial for people to learn understand how Ajax works. Good job!
