    Question Javascrip - on/ off button

    Hi i am in the middle of creating a members area system which has went well up to now. I need to create a button that will turn alerts on and off for example when the user clicks the button it will show turn on and vice versa however each time they select the button i want it to update the database with its current state so the admin knows who is currently accepting alerts. IS THIS POSSIBLE!!!!

    I would like to thank you in advance and appreciate any help.

    It is possible. You can use JavaScript to both alter the innerHTML text between ON and OFF, and access an AJaX function that can submit information to a page that will update the table in the database. You can even set it up so that it waits for the return text before changing the ON or OFF display on the page.

    set a cookie of alerts on/off.
    this accomplish two of your goals:
    1. remembering the pref
    2. making the pref available to the server (using the backend cookie feature)

    you'll have to ask on a different forums about committing the various cookies to a DB, that's backend talk...
