Hi, I have a javascript which updates price and unit from mysql database.
The option onchange event calls 2 javascript functions each one for price and unit.
The code works fine in IE, but does not work correctly in firefox.
Below is the code, can anyone suggest!

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function showUnit(str)
{
if (str=="")
  {
  document.getElementById("txtUnit").innerHTML="";
  return;
  }
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)
    {
    document.getElementById("txtUnit").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
    }
  }
xmlhttp.open("GET","getunit.php?q="+str,true);
xmlhttp.send();
}

function showPrice(str)
{
if (str=="")
  {
  document.getElementById("txtUnit").innerHTML="";
  return;
  }
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)
    {
    document.getElementById("txtPrice").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
    }
  }
xmlhttp.open("GET","getprice.php?q="+str,true);
xmlhttp.send();
}

</script>
</head>
<body>

<form>

<?php
//including the database connection file
include_once("config.php");

$query="SELECT * FROM products Order by product_id";
$result = mysql_query ($query);
echo "Select Product";
echo "<br>";
echo "<select name=product_id value='' onchange='showUnit(this.value); showPrice(this.value);'>";

// printing the list box select command

while($nt=mysql_fetch_array($result)){//Array or records stored in $nt
echo "<option value=$nt[product_id]>$nt[product_name]</option>";
/* Option values are added by looping through the array */
}

echo "</select>";
?>
</form>
<br />
<br>

     <b>Person info will be listed here.</b> 
<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#111111" width="100%" id="AutoNumber1">

    <td width="33%">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="34%"><div id="txtUnit"></div>

  </tr>
</table>

Line 13 - Undeclared variable xmlhttp. Before you create the object, user

var xmlhttp = false;

Then before you do the request, use:

if (xmlhttp) {
 //... Your code....
} else {
 alert('Could not create AJAX object.');
}

If this does not solve it, you should add alert()'s between your code to debug your code. Here you can find other tips: http://www.webdevproject.com/guides/programming/guide1.html
