        <div id="information"></div>

So I do exactly same as my lecture example. But I couldn't get the error message or the page redirect.
I am not sure is it the problem at login.js

Please advise.

Are you passing passwords with GET? If so, don't.


Really, don't

This is just the begining of my assignment only.
Thus, I go for simple design and functionality first before I enhance them.s

Re: Can't redirect/display error message using AJAX DOM 80 80

So the scenario of the project is like this.

I am using XMLHttpsRequest to open login.php to check the data against with XML.

But I'm have no idea how to check like if the data match, then redirect to another page. Else, prompt error message.

any advise will be appreciate. Thankss
