How do we insert PHP code into JavaScript code?

Published: July 5, 2009

Question:
How do we insert php code into javascript code?


Answer:
PHP is server-side code which means that the code is executed on the web server. The pages are dynamically created and sent to the user's browser.


JavaScript is a client-side code which means that it runs on the user's computer after the page has been sent from the server.


It is possible to combine PHP commands within JavaScript commands.


You would mainly use this in setting up starting variables for your JavaScript.


Example:
<script language='JavaScript'>
<!--
var BoxColor = <?php echo $color;?>;
…etc
-->
</script>


Another option is that you may consider using Ajax which allows you to dynamically call server-side code from JavaScript.
