Got an error in xmlhttp.responseText


Recommended Posts



It's my first time to use ajax, and now I used ajax to get the value from select option then use that value.


here is my ajax code:


<script type="text/javascript">
var xmlhttp;  // Give the function a unique name, this is what your HTML will call to run the AJAX 
function select_code() {      // This is all just setting up the variable, ignore it     
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {          // code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari        
xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();      
} else {          // code for IE6, IE5         
xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");      
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {          
    if(xmlhttp.readyState == 4 && xmlhttp.status == 200) {              
       // alert(xmlhttp.readyState+" "+xmlhttp.status);
    document.getElementById("rows").innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText;   
        //var mydata=xmlhttp.responseText;         
var val = document.getElementById("lot_number");      
var lot_number = val.options[val.selectedIndex].text;       
var parameters = "lot_number="                      
                + lot_number;       
                xmlhttp.open("POST", "PickingForm.php", true);     
                xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");     
//var mydata=xmlhttp.responseText;   



nad here is my PickingForm.php where the select option was in.


$query = "SELECT lot_number from wms WHERE (date_shelve IS NOT NULL) AND stock_item = '$ItemCode' AND (qty = orig_qty OR qty != '0.00') AND qty >= '$SubQty' ORDER BY qty";                 
$rows = mysql_query($query, $con); 

echo "<td><select name = 'lot_number' id='lot_number' onChange='select_code();'>";

//echo "<select name='lot_number' id='lot_number' onchange='MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)'>";
echo "<option></option>";                
  while ($record = mysql_fetch_array($rows))          
      echo "<option value = '{$record['lot_number']}'";             
      if ($lot_number == $record['lot_number'])                 
      echo "selected = 'selected'";             
       echo ">{$record['lot_number']}</option>";        
  echo "</select>";
  echo "</td>";  
  $lot_number = $_POST['lot_number'];
  $sql_bin = "SELECT bin_loc FROM wms WHERE lot_number = '$lot_number'";
  $res_bin = mysql_query($sql_bin, $con);
  while($row_bin = mysql_fetch_assoc($res_bin)){
      $bin_loc = $row_bin['bin_loc'];
  echo "<td><input type='text' name='bin_loc' id='bin_loc' value='$bin_loc'></td>";


and when I select lot_code in select option:


I got an error:


document.getElementById() is null or not an object...


I don't know how can I solve this error:(


Thank you
