I am looking for a button that inside a php table.
I tried

echo "<td bgcolor='#FFFFFF'><center>" . '<input type="button" name="Activate" value="Activate" class="form" onClick="activate_user_id('.$rows['username'].','.$rows['loginid'].','.$rows['activated'].')">' . "</center></td>";

I know people said i have to use AJAX to make it work. but i dont know AJAX at all, Can anyone show me how to use AJAX that to make this button works with calling a function in the same page and refresh the page after updated the sql

tizag has an excellent write up on ajax.
http://www.tizag.com/ajaxTutorial/ajax-mysql-database.php

that said I made you a little function ajax, it currently uses 3 pages.
input form page:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
<!-- 
//Browser Support Code
function ajaxFunction(username,loginid,activated){
	var ajaxRequest;  // The variable that makes Ajax possible!
	var u = username;
	var li = loginid;
	alert('u='+ u);
	alert('li='+li);
	try{
		// Opera 8.0+, Firefox, Safari
		ajaxRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();
	} catch (e){
		// Internet Explorer Browsers
		try{
			ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
		} catch (e) {
			try{
				ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
			} catch (e){
				// Something went wrong
				alert("Your browser broke!");
				return false;
			}
		}
	}
	// Create a function that will receive data sent from the server
	ajaxRequest.onreadystatechange = function(){
		if(ajaxRequest.readyState == 4){
			var ajaxDisplay = document.getElementById('ajaxDiv');
			ajaxDisplay.innerHTML = ajaxRequest.responseText;
		}
	}
	//var age = document.getElementById('age').value;
	//var wpm = document.getElementById('wpm').value;
	//var sex = document.getElementById('sex').value;
	
	var queryString = "?username=" + username + "&loginid=" + loginid + "&activated=" + activated;
	alert('querystring =' + queryString);
	ajaxRequest.open("GET", "example.php" + queryString, true);
	this.getData(2);
	ajaxRequest.send(null); 	
}
//-->

function getData(number){
	var ajaxRequest;  // The variable that makes Ajax possible!
	//var u = username;
	//var li = loginid;
	//alert('u='+ u);
	//alert('li='+li);
	try{
		// Opera 8.0+, Firefox, Safari
		ajaxRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();
	} catch (e){
		// Internet Explorer Browsers
		try{
			ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
		} catch (e) {
			try{
				ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
			} catch (e){
				// Something went wrong
				alert("Your browser broke!");
				return false;
			}
		}
	}
	// Create a function that will receive data sent from the server
	ajaxRequest.onreadystatechange = function(){
		if(ajaxRequest.readyState == 4){
			var ajaxDisplay = document.getElementById('rowDiv');
			ajaxDisplay.innerHTML = ajaxRequest.responseText;
		}
	}
	//var age = document.getElementById('age').value;
	//var wpm = document.getElementById('wpm').value;
	//var sex = document.getElementById('sex').value;
	// in reality, there is no querystring, just call a 'GET' on the page below....
	var queryString = "?rows=" + number;
	
	alert('querystring =' + queryString);
	ajaxRequest.open("GET", "getData.php" + queryString, true);
	ajaxRequest.send(null); 	
}
//-->
</script>
<!--  call you function to get the data you need for inactive users on body onload -->
<body onload="getData(1)";>
<?php

<?php
	// this is just some array data, in theory, you would just connect to a db

in my example code I initially getData loads the first array and all other times loads the second one, missing the first record. you will not need to put a constraint on getData as you want the 'same' data everytime, everybody who is not approved is what I am guessing.

Enjoy.
