Send with jQuery and validate with PHP


Recommended Posts

Hello all.


I have a problem with my module. I do a form with only one input where the client put the phone number.


I need to validate this phone with a external bussiness API, so return TRUE if it's correct and registered. If this number it's correct the form change asking for a PIN number sended to the phone.


How can i do it? How can i send the phone with jQuery and receibe TRUE or FALSE for show the new form or not?


I dont know if i explain it right.. :S

Is a bussiness that send you a message to mobile if you have points for apply a discount with them. I dont analize this API yet, but i know that return TRUE or FALSE when you call the function.




$client = new SoapClient(NULL, array('uri' => self::$URL_API, 'location' => self::$URL_API.'/api/index.php'));  
$salida=$client->oo_request_pincode($_POST['connect_ole'], $_POST['nMobil'], $cart->getOrderTotal(true, Cart::BOTH));


this method return TRUE if its OK and then i can proceed with the next form, where the client put the PIN code sended to phone.


Ah, i have a form like this:


$(".button").click(function() {
var phone = $("input#phone").val();
  type: "POST",
  url: "modules/olepoints/bin/process.php",
  data: phone,
  success: function() {

sorry for late reply i was offline, now im back


so you press the 'button' then the code do the AJAX call to the modules/olepoints/bin/process.php file.

PHP script that you've got returns false / true. If return value is "true" - create a simple echo "1"; if "false" - echo "0";


then in the javascript you have access to the "echo" value, for example via "data" variable:

success: function(data) {


now you can check the data value:

if data == 1 - make another AJAX call to script

if data == 0 - false
