Post data to LotusScript agent and update web page content without refreshing the page

This example sends text located in a DIV tag on a web page to a LotusScript agent and updates the DIV element with response data received back from the agent. It's a kind of AJAX solution for updating the page.

Live example

Sub Initialize

var http_request = false;
function makePOSTRequest(url, parameters) {
http_request = false;
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) { // Mozilla
http_request = new XMLHttpRequest();
if (http_request.overrideMimeType) {
} else if (window.ActiveXObject) { // IE
try {
http_request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
} catch (e) {
try {
http_request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
} catch (e) {}
if (!http_request) {
alert('Cannot create XMLHTTP instance');
return false;

http_request.onreadystatechange = GetResponse;
http_request.open('POST', url, true);
http_request.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
http_request.setRequestHeader("Content-length", parameters.length);
http_request.setRequestHeader("Connection", "close");

function GetResponse() {
if (http_request.readyState == 4) {
if (http_request.status == 200) {
result = http_request.responseText;
document.getElementById('test').innerHTML = result;
} else {
alert('There was a problem with the request.');

function GetAgentData(txtdata) {
var poststr = txtdata; //encodeURI(txtdata);
makePOSTRequest('/test.nsf/postagent?openagent', poststr);

<div id="test">This text will be replaced</div>
<a href="javascript:GetAgentData(document.getElementById('test').innerHTML);">Run agent, run!</a>
