I've got a Javascript function called getCartProducts() which gets a JSON array via AJAX using $.post() which returns a value. I want to let my function return that value, but I don't know how to do that.

Here's my function:

function getCartProduct(id){ $.post('core/ajax/getCartProduct.ajax.php', {id: parseInt(id)}, function(data){ var result = data; }); return result; } 

I know that this wont work, because te variable result is only active in the $.post() function, but I don't know how to get it straight.

Add a callback function (AJAX is Asynchronous, so your return is being hit before there is any data to return):

function returnData(param) { console.log(param); } 

Now add that callback function as a parameter to your AJAX function, and lets run it:

function getCartProduct(id, callback){ $.post('core/ajax/getCartProduct.ajax.php', {id: parseInt(id)}, function(data){ callback(data); }); } getCartProduct(id, returnData);
