No refresh Calulator-Simple

Postby nite4000 » Fri Nov 25, 2011 8:20 pm

Hey all I am not sure this is the right place to post this so if its not I apoligize but here is what I am trying to do.

I have a form

<form action="calc.php" method="post">
<tr><td width="48">Amount</td><td width="128"><input name="amt" type="text" value="<?php echo $_POST['amt']; ?>" size="8" maxlength="8" /></td></tr>
<tr><td>Percent</td><td><input name="per" type="text" value="<?php echo $_POST['per']; ?>" size="8" maxlength="8" /></td></tr>
<tr><td><select name="days">
<option value="daily" selected="selected">Daily</option>
<option value="after">After</option>
</select></td><td><input name="days2" type="text" value="<?php echo $_POST['days2']; ?>" size="8" maxlength="8" />
<tr><td colspan="2"><input name="go" type="submit" value="Calculate" /></td></tr>
<tr><td>Total</td><td><?php echo $total;?></td></tr>


which is basic table as you see now i have this as php code at the top

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]

if(isset($_POST['go'])) {
        if($_POST['days'] =='daily') {
$total = $_POST['amt'] * $_POST['per'] / 100 * $_POST['days2'];

        if($_POST['days'] =='after') {
$total = $_POST['amt'] * $_POST['per'] / 100 * 1;      



My task is I need to submit this to get the results WITHOUT refreshing I have read its jquery and JS but I am lost when it comes to this. I have looked at samples but no luck any help would be nice.

You sure wouldn't want to use JQuery for this, as there's no communication to the server necessary as far as I can see. The client-machine is more than capable of performing mathematics, so let it. Just embed a JS calculator from one of many thousands of sources on google.
