Questions : 5 How to get the server response from an AJAX request using Jquery?
Answers : 5 When invoking functions that have asynchronous behavior We must provide a callback function to capture the desired result. This is especially important with AJAX in the browser because when a remote request is made, it is indeterminate when the response will be received.Below an example of making an AJAX call and alerting the response (or error):

     url: 'pcdsEmpRecords.php',
     success: function(response) {
     error: function(xhr) {
        alert('Error!  Status = ' + xhr.status);

Questions : 9 How do you get the text value of a selected option?
Answers : 9 Select elements typically have two values that you want to access. First there’s the value to be sent to the server, which is easy:

 // => 1

The second is the text value of the select. For example, using the following select box:

 <select id="pcdsselect">

   <option value="1">Mr</option>
   <option value="2">Mrs</option>
   <option value="3">Ms</option>
   <option value="4">Dr</option>

   <option value="5">Prof</option>

If you wanted to get the string “Mr” if the first option was selected (instead of just “1”), you would do that in the following way:

 $("#mpcdsselect option:selected").text();
 // => "Mr"

 is to be written for the same functionality than the javascript.

 15).What is Chaining in jQuery?
 In jQuery, Chaining means to connect multiple functions, events on selectors. look at Sample Code 1 and 2.
Sample Code 1
$('#dvContent').css('color', 'red');

Sample Code 2 (using Chaining)
.css('color', 'red')

Both the sample codes above will perform the exact same thing but the only difference is that Sample code 2 is using Chaining. But Code 2 is faster and shorter then Code 1.
 The problem with the Sample Code 1 is that for every statement, jQuery has to search the entire DOM and find the element and after that executes the attached function on it. But when chaining is used, then jQuery has to find the element only once and it will execute all the attached functions one by one. This is the advantage of Chaining.
