DayPilot.Http.ajax

A method of making HTTP requests. 

The syntax and behavior is inspired by jQuery.ajax(). However, the default POST data format is JSON.

Available in DayPilot Pro for JavaScipt since version 2018.2.3223. In previous versions, it's available as DayPilot.ajax().

Declaration

DayPilot.Http.ajax(options);

Parameters

  • options.contentType - request body content type (string). Default value is "application/json" (if options.data is an object) or "text/plain" for other types.
  • options.data - POST body (optional). If the type of options.data is "object" the value will be serialized using JSON.stringify().
  • options.error - error event handler (optional)
  • options.method - request method ("POST" | "GET"). Default value is "GET". Since 2020.3.4578: If the method is not specified and options.data is present, "POST" is used, otherwise "GET" is used. 
  • options.success - success event handler (optional)
  • options.url - URL of the HTTP request

Success Callback

Arguments:

Error Callback

The success callback is executed when the response is received with HTTP status code other than 200.
