Re: Soap service request using Ajax (webworks)

I have an html page, I specified a div (Called divResult) that I want to display the xml sent back from the web service. My webservice address is stored in urlMyOffers, and it requires 2 parameters (uid and dscnt)

I place both funtions below in a javascript file (actions.js) that I reference in the html page (place this in the header: 



this is what I currently use inside actions.js, it works on OS5 and OS6 and Playbook:

script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/actions.js"></script>)


try {
 var params = 'uid=' + userid + '&dscnt=' + dsc;
        req = new XMLHttpRequest();
        req.onreadystatechange = handleOfferResponse;
        req.open('POST', urlMyOffers, true);
        req.setRequestHeader('Content-type', 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
        req.setRequestHeader('Content-length', params.length);
        req.setRequestHeader('Connection', 'close');
    } catch (err) {
        alert("Error: " + err.message);

function handleOfferResponse() {
    if ((req.readyState == 4) && (req.status == 200)) {
        var rslt = req.responseText;
        var displayDiv = document.getElementById('divResult');
        var myRegExp = new RegExp("&amp;", "g");
        var myResult = rslt.replace(myRegExp, "&");
        displayDiv.innerHTML = myResult;
