    Update multiple text boxes values with one AJAX Call

    I have a form which contains 1 drop down list abd 4 text boxes; the values for these boxes needs to be updated from the database based on the value from the drop down. Using the onreadystatechange you usually update the innerHTML to a div; how is it possible to update multiple values using the same method or is there other methods?

    How about grabbing the response text in one variable, then splitting that variable up into bits and then putting those bits into their respective text box.
    PHP Code:
    var someString pageRequest.responseText;
    temp someString.split(',');
    text1.value temp[0];
    text2.value temp[1];
    text3.value temp[2];
    text4.value temp[3]; 
    The response text would've been something like:

    Assuming you're using PHP you could use the implode function to add those strings together.
    http://php.net/implode <-- Implode reference

    Sorry if I'm way off, I've been using PHP and Javascript for some time but I haven't been using AJAX very long at all.
