jQuery Ajax XML Response Example

jQuery supports different types of responses data types which are sent by the server as a result of processing Ajax request, the various types of data supported are HTML, XML, JSON and Text. In this post we shall see on how to process XML data returned from the server using jQuery.

The syntax for receiving and processing XML response is as follows.

$.ajax({
    url: "AjaxData.xml",
    cache: true,
    dataType: "xml",
    success: function(result) {…}
});

The following example receives a XML format data from the server and displays the data in a DIV tag in the browser.


.aspx Page (Client Side)
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>jQuery Ajax</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="JavaScript/jquery-1.7.2.js"></script>
    <script
        type="text/javascript"
        language="javascript">
        $(document).ready(function() {
            //
            //
            // Get XML Response data from the Server
            $('#btnGetXML').click(function(event) {
                event.preventDefault();
                var nameList = "";
                $.ajax({
                    url: "AjaxData.xml",
                    cache: false,
                    dataType: "xml",
                    success: function(result) {
                        $(result).find("Name").each(function() {
                            nameList = nameList + $(this).text() + "
"
;
                        });
                        $("#divXML").html(nameList);
                    }
                });
            });
        });
    </script>                 
</head>
<body>
    <form id="frmAjax" runat="server">
    <table border="1">
        <tr>
            <td><b>Action</b></td>
            <td><b>Response</b></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>
                <asp:Button

                    runat="server"
                    Text="Get XML"/>
            </td>
            <td>
                <div id="divXML"></div> 
            </td>
        </tr>
