Using jQuery ajax: follow standard MVC Pattern

Postby rashidul_cse » Thu May 12, 2011 12:11 pm

Hi,

Hope everything goes well.

I'm developing a custom joomla 1.6 component. Based on user clicks on a tab I want to display some data through a jQuery Ajax call.

The name of the component is
com_pms


Here goes details.....
My jQuery Ajax code: executes/triggers when clicks on a button...

Code: Select all

$.ajax({
         type: 'POST',
          url: 'index.php',
          dataType: 'html',
          data: 'option=com_pms&task=gcompose',
          error: function(xhr, textStatus, errorThrown) {
              alert('An error occurred! ' + errorThrown);
          },
          success: function(data, textStatus) {
             stopSpinner("pms_message_content_compose");
              $(data).appendTo( '#pms_message_content_compose .no-table' );
              lstate_compose = true;
          }
      });


controller.php file contains..

Code: Select all

function gcompose(){
      JRequest::setVar( 'view', 'compose' );
       JRequest::setVar( 'layout', 'form'  );
       parent::display();
   }


views >> compose >> view.html.php

Code: Select all

<?php
// No direct access to this file
defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
 
// import Joomla view library
jimport('joomla.application.component.view');
 
class PmsViewCompose extends JView
{
   // Overwriting JView display method
   function display($tpl = null)
   {
      // Display the view
      parent::display($tpl);
   }
}


views >> compose >> tmpl >> form.php

Code: Select all

<?php
// No direct access to this file
defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access');
?>
<div>Some text</div>


I want to display "some text". But instead of this it displays the entire index.php where body contains "some text".

Any idea would be greatly appreciated.. :)

Thanks,
Rashidul

Include "tmpl=component" in the variables in your AJAX POST, or in your URL (as in "index.php?tmpl=component").
