is an easy way to use Ajax requests. According to the different states and results of the request, you can change a property of an object.

Description of the properties


  • ActionName : the name of the action, this will be also the name of the javascript function to call.

  • Method : Ajax POST or GET

  • Server page to call : the url of the server page, for example « myserverpage.php »

  • Object ID : Optional – The ID of the object to modify

  • Javascript before : the script to execute before the action

  • Asynchronous : true for an asynchronous request, false otherwise.



If an Object ID is specified, you can set its  Initial state.

  • Object property name : the name of the property to modify

  • Object property value : the value of the property, use " " to specify string value.

  • Object is visible : true if the object must be visible, false otherwise.

  • Javascript : a script to execute


On Success

See Initial catégory.

  • If your request has a result text, you can use the special value @data for string value. For example,

  • "Status is @data "


On Fail

See Initial catégory.



For design purpose.

  • Action Description : the description of the Action to display in design mode

  • Background Color : the background color of the Action object in design mode


Using the AjaxAction function in javascript

For each AjaxAction a function (getIP() in the example) is created. The name of the function is the name of the AjaxAction.

  • Using the synchronous mode (setting false to Asynchronous property), the function can return a string value if succeed.

  • You can pass parameter to the function using the application/x-www-form-urlencoded content type.

    • For example :

      • getParam(‘name=ip’) ;

      • myAction(‘param1=x&param2=y’) ;
