1 ajax_example_misc.inc ajax_link_response($type = 'ajax')

Callback for link example.

Takes different logic paths based on whether JavaScript was enabled. If $type == 'ajax', it tells this function that ajax.js has rewritten the URL and thus we are doing an AJAX and can return an array of commands.


string $type: Either 'ajax' or 'nojs. Type is simply the normal URL argument to this URL.

Return value

string|array: If $type == 'ajax', returns an array of AJAX Commands. Otherwise, just returns the content, which will end up being a page.
