ajax - onreadystatechange events

the ajax - onreadystatechange event is triggered every time the readystate changes.event handlers are called as needed after a request is sent.

the ajax onreadystatechange event syntax :-

            new xmlhttprequest().onreadystatechange  = handler ;

ajax - onreadystatechange event example :-

          function statushandler() {
   if  ( requestobject.readystate   ==  4 )  {
    if (requestobject.status   ==  200  || requestobject.status  == 304 )  {
                       alert  ("transfer completes") ;
                                             } else {
                                                       //error occurred 
     var  requestobject   =   new xmlhttprequest();
          requestobject.open("get", "http://localhost//login.jsp", true);
