At the moment I'm calling all my javascript from links and buttons with onclick="sendRequest('$variable')".

Is there a way to call sendRequest() from straight within the php code?


If ($x == $y) {
    // call sendRequest()

..... not sure exactly what you mean, but you can't call a javascript function from PHP.  PHP executes on the server... javascript executes on the client.  Those are 2 different times.

just a supplement to ober's post....

if there is a criteria met in your php code then you could then place

echo 'onLoad="sendRequest(\'' . $variable . '\')"';

inside the body tag.

Alternatively you could use futher js to call the send request based on what the user has entered into the form.

say u have two text boxes and you want to send the request when the 2 values are equal then right another function that checks to the 2 values (and they are not empty) if they are eaual call sendrequest. Then simply add the onChage or onKeyUp attribute of the input field pointing to your new script.
