XML or TXT to JS variable direction?

Recommended Posts

I need some help with search keywords to find what I need for this to work. I have a php script (page) writing a xml file or txt file (either which works for this scenario)http://tvmiller.com/ocext/popup.phpThe page produces a single line in either xml or txt to advise of an alert. I'm trying to learn how to then create a javascript (or other html friendly i.e. non-php) script that will read the xml or txt file and if/else based on the one line in the file. Please give me some clues so I can learn more around the net to figure this out...or I welcome alternative tactics. Thanks!

If your wanting JavaScript to fetch the contents of a xml or txt file which is on the server, you can use AJAX inside JavaScript.

var ajax = new XMLHttpRequest; ajax.onreadystatechange = function() {  if (ajax.readyState == 4) {	alert(ajax.responseText);  }} ajax.open('GET', 'path/to/some_file.txt', true);ajax.send();
