[RESOLVED] make variable from ajax-called php doc global?
Ok, so I'm trying to get a variable called $active_name to display in index.php as 42. It's changed to that in active_players.php when active_players.php is 'opened' via ajax. That change only stays in active_players.php. When a button is clicked in it, send_invite() is called, which, not being part of active_players.php, has $active_name remain as 24.
I've excerpted out just the parts that I think you will need to find my error. Please let me know if more information is needed.
$active_name = "24"; //if this is taken out, the variable, 'name' in send_invite() ends up being undefined
$active_name = "42";//I would like this to become global in index.php
echo $active_name;//it's 42, here of course.
echo "<input type='button' onclick='send_invite()' value='test'/>";
