How to pass multiple JSON Objects as data using jQuery’s $.ajax() ?
  • Last Updated : 30 Apr, 2021

The purpose of this article is to pass multiple JSON objects as data using the jQuery $ajax() method in an HTML document.

Approach: Create a button in an HTML document to send JSON objects to a PHP server. In the JavaScript file, add a click event listener to the button. On clicking of the button, a request is made to PHP file using jQuery $ajax() method by which multiple JSON objects are passed to the server. 

HTML Code: The following code demonstrates the design or structure of the user interface. On click of the HTML button, it gives the response by the PHP server in the resultID HTML div.

index.html




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
  
    <meta name="viewport" 
          content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  
    <!-- CSS file -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  
    <!-- jQuery Ajax CDN -->
    <script src=
    </script>
  
    <!-- JavaScript file -->
    <script src="script.js"></script>
</head>
  
<body>
     <center>
     <h2 style="color:green">GeeksforGeeks</h2>
     <div class="container">
        <b>Pass multiple JSON objects</b>
        <br/><br/>
        <!-- Button to multiple JSON objects -->
        <button type="button" id="btn">
            Click on me!
        </button>
        <div style="height:10px"></div>
        <div id="resultID"></div>
     </div>
     </center>
</body>
  
</html>

CSS Code: The following code is the content for the file “style.css” used in the above HTML code.



Style,css




.container {
  border: 1px solid rgb(73, 72, 72);
  border-radius: 10px;
  margin: auto;
  padding: 10px;
  text-align: center;
}
  
button {
  border-radius: 5px;
  padding: 10px;
  color: #fff;
  background-color: #167deb;
  border-color: #0062cc;
  font-weight: bolder;
  cursor: pointer;
}
  
button:hover {
  text-decoration: none;
  background-color: #0069d9;
  border-color: #0062cc;
}

JavaScript Code: The following code is the content for the file “script.js” used in the above HTML code. It handles the click() event for the button by using jQuery ajax() method and passing the data to a PHP server file i.e action.php

script.js




$(document).ready(() => {
      
  // Adding 'click' event listener to button
  $("#btn").click(() => {
        
    // Two JSON objects are passed to server    
    let obj1 = {"name": "John Doe"};
    let obj2 = {"name": "Duke"};
  
    // jQuery Ajax Post Request using $.ajax()
    $.ajax({
        url: 'action.php',
        type: 'POST',
        // passing JSON objects as comma(,) separated values
        data: {
            obj1,
            obj2
        },
        success: (response) => {
            // response from PHP back-end PHP server          
           $("#resultID").show().html(response);
        }
    })
  });
});

Note: You can pass as many JSON objects by using comma(,) separated values i.e. obj1, obj2, obj3,..

PHP code: The following is the code for the file “action.php” used in the above JavaScript code.

PHP




<?php
  
// Check if JSON Objects are set by user 
  
if (isset($_POST['obj1']) && $_POST['obj2'])
{
  // Get JSON objects in variables
   $obj1 = $_POST['obj1'];
   $obj2 = $_POST['obj2'];
    
  // Sending response to script file 
  echo "Success";
}
?>

Output :

multiple data passing and getting response
