This isn't actually a php question, it's a javascript one.


Basically in order to do this you need to use some mechanism in javascript to query this page in the background. There are plenty of javascript frameworks (jQuery, MooTools etc.) that provide something called an "AJAX" implementation.


Basically, you can provide a URL to these javascript methods and it will essentially "visit" the page in the background. It will then return whatever string you want.


For example, in jQuery, you would do something like this:

  url: 'path/to/your/file.php',
  dataTye: 'text', 
  success: function(data) {
    // data is the string from file.php


Now you would just need to modify your .php file to echo whatever you want to display
