JavaScript to PHP

Recommended Posts

I am getting a monitors resolution with JavaScript. After I get the resolution I want to make it a PHP variable. I want to do all of this on one page. How do I do it? JavaScript:

[code]<script type="text/javascript"> document.write(screen.width+"x"+screen.height); </script>[/code]

If I am going to echo the variable it works like this:

[code]$resolution = '<script type="text/javascript"> document.write(screen.width+"x"+screen.height); </script>';[/code]

The only problem is I am not going to echo it, I am going to put it in mySQL database. Does anyone know how to pass this variable to php? Thanks!

Mike

Remember, PHP runs on the server and Javascript runs on the client. PHP is done with all of its processing before Javascript starts to execute. The only way to do what you want is to use AJAX where your Javascript script starts up a small PHP script in the background and passes the information.

Hmm... Maybe I'll look into passing it through a cookie. I have been meaning to look that up for a while. Thanks!
