Alright I'm new to ajax but I wanted to know how to go about this using POST I can't find examples and the ones I look at show I'm doing this right but it doesnt seem to be working maybe someone can catch my error.


Index
Code:
<html>
	<head>

	<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
	<!-- 
	//Browser Support Code
	function ajaxFunction(){
		var ajaxRequest;  // The variable that makes Ajax possible!
		
		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 ajaxPlayers = document.getElementById('ajaxPlayers');
				ajaxPlayers.innerHTML = ajaxRequest.responseText;
			}
		}
		
		var limit = document.getElementById('limit').value;

		ajaxRequest.open("POST", "players.php", true);
		ajaxRequest.send(limit);
	}
	
	//-->
	</script>
	</head>


	<body>

		<form method=POST>
		<table align='center'>
			<tr>
				<td>
					Max Limit:
				</td>
				<td>
					<input type='text' id='limit' onChange=''>
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td colspan=2>
					<input type='button' value='Retrieve' onClick='ajaxFunction()'>
				</td>
			</tr>
		</table>
		</form>

		<div id='ajaxPlayers'>Your Results</div>
	</body>
</html>

players.php
PHP Code:
<?

include("config.php");

$limit $_POST['limit'];
echo 
"limit: $limit";


    
$query mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `accounts` ORDER BY `id` ASC LIMIT $limit");

    echo(
"<table>");
    while(
$row mysql_fetch_array($query))
    {
        
$id $row['id'];
        
$username $row['username'];
        
$password $row['password'];
        
$email $row['email'];

        echo(
"
        <tr>
            <td>
                
$id
            </td>

            <td>
                
$username
            </td>

            <td>
                
$password
            </td>

            <td>
                
$email
            </td>
        </tr>
        "
);
    }
        echo(
"</table> <br> Posts:");

    
print_r($_POST);
?>
I want to get the limit to pass through but it just doesnt post any ideas?


I know how to do it with GET but I want to learn how to do it with POST.
