    Returning string from PHP without using XmlHttpRequestObject

    Hey all,

    Just a newbie with AJAX/PHP. All I want is to return a string from a PHP file.

    I have the following code in Javascript...

    scriptObj = document.createElement("script");

    scriptObj.setAttribute("type", "text/javascript");

    scriptObj.setAttribute("charset", "utf-8");

    scriptObj.setAttribute("src", this.fullUrl);

    scriptObj.setAttribute("id", this.scriptId);

    document.body.appendChild (scriptObj);

    and the following in my php file
    if ($score > 0 && $num_rows < 5) {
    $query="INSERT INTO Table1
    VALUES ('null', '$name', '$score', CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)";
    echo("Score submitted! Name: $name, Score: $score");
    else {
    echo "No score was submitted";


    How can I use the echo string back in my javascript function??
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
