Hi Everyone, I am new to JQuery, Java Script & Ajax.

Hope you dont mind the daft questions I may post.
Here is my first Jquery, JS & Ajax question.

I have the follow script inside my head section of a website I am testing with.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function swapContent(cv) {
    $("#inPlayCards").html('<img src="blueloading.gif"/>').show();
    var url = "inplaycards-shoot.php";
    $.post(url, {contentVar: cv} ,function(data) {

my button for calling the script is -

            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-large" onClick="return false" onMouseDown="javascript:swapContent('inplaycards');">Click To Select Your Cards</button></p>

On the PHP page I have the following if -

$contentVar = $_POST['contentVar'];
if ($contentVar == "inplaycards") {

mysql db...


Now, the above script calls my url, the php page does the mysql query and returns the result in the requested div, no problems there, until I tried adding a second script to the page.

inside the script tags.

function shootone(cv) {
    $("#one").html('<img src="blueloading.gif"/>').show();
    var url = "inplaycards-shoot1.php";
    $.post(url, {contentVar: cv} ,function(data) {

The button for the second script is

            <button type="button" class="btn btn-success btn-large" onClick="return false" onMouseDown="javascript:shootone('shootone');">Click To Select First Card</button></p> 

The if statment on my php is

$contentVar = $_POST['contentVar'];
if ($contentVar == "shootone") {

mysql db...


Is it possible to have more than one script on a single page, as I need another three to run when I click each individual button.

Any help would be very much appreciated,

On a side note, why not make one function to handle all of this rather than multiple different functions that do almost the identical thing.


Hi GliderPilot, No, it's not giving any error at all, when I click on the second button, nothing happens.

@Pixelsoul, I am new to js functions etc and wouldnt know where to start...

Can someone point me in the right direction how I can have multiple scripts on the same page
