Hi i have the following coding.

<input type="button" id="sample" value="click" onclick="sam_click()"/>

<script type="text/javascript">
function sam_click(clicked)
	var x="<?php ex(); ?>";
	return false;

function ex()
$res=mysql_query("call PrcEmployeeDisplay(777)");

Here when button is clicked it will call javascript function and that function will call php function. This works fine. i. e. Database is connected and retrieved the result and dispalying the number of rows in alert box. But i need to display the selected results in html table how to do this? pls help me.

Whatever you do, you are not calling PHP function, which can exist only on server side, from Javascript code executing on client side...

You should create html template to fill it while fetching query data. Please refer php documentation about it.

I don't see how it can be OK. Your question is about the call which cannot exist, even if the functionality may resemble it, as with Ajax (which is actually a key, in case of JavaScript).

Solution 1

Instead of this statement

var x="<?php ex(); ??>";

use a Jquery $.get to make a AJAX call to the server to do the operation and in the callback function to the get, use the statements
    return false;

var function getOutput() {
      complete: function (response) {
      error: function () {
          $('#output').html('Bummer: there was an error!');
  return false;
