HTML5 Table to Insert Inline Data using jQuery AJAX

HTML5 Table to Insert Inline Data

The following code shows an editable HTML5 table and a Save button. In the table, the editable cells are referred with the product field name by using data attribute. After entering data by inline editing, we have to confirm to save the data to the database by using the Save button.

<div class="txt-heading">Add Product</div>
	<table cellpadding="10" cellspacing="1">
				<th style="text-align:right;"><strong>Price</strong></th>
				<td contentEditable="true" data-id="product_name"></td>
				<td contentEditable="true" data-id="product_code"></td>
				<td contentEditable="true" data-id="product_desc"></td>
				<td contentEditable="true" data-id="product_price" style="text-align:right;"></td>
<div id="btnSaveAction">Save to Database</div>

Store Table Data to Database via jQuery AJAX

The following jQuery script reads editable cell content with the reference of the custom attribute and form data to be posted via AJAX. PHP will use the post data and fire insert query to add this data to the database. On successful product insert, PHP page will return the newly added row as a response to the AJAX call which will be shown to the user.

	params = ""
		if($(this).text() != "") {
			if(params != "") {
				params += "&";
			params += $(this).data('id')+"="+$(this).text();
	if(params!="") {
			url: "insert-row.php",
			type: "POST",
			success: function(response){

The PHP file to insert data into the database is,

	$db_handle = new DBController();
	$product_name = "";
	$product_code = "";
	$product_desc = "";
	$product_price = "";

	if(!empty($_POST["product_name"])) {
		$product_name = $db_handle->cleanData($_POST["product_name"]);
	if(!empty($_POST["product_code"])) {
		$product_code = $db_handle->cleanData($_POST["product_code"]);
	if(!empty($_POST["product_desc"])) {
		$product_desc = $db_handle->cleanData($_POST["product_desc"]);
	if(!empty($_POST["product_price"])) {
		$product_price = $db_handle->cleanData($_POST["product_price"]);

	$sql = "INSERT INTO tbl_product (product_name,product_code,product_desc,product_price) VALUES ('" . $product_name . "','" . $product_code . "','" . $product_desc . "','" . $product_price . "')";
	$product_id = $db_handle->executeInsert($sql);

	if(!empty($product_id)) {
		$sql = "SELECT * from tbl_product WHERE id = '$product_id' ";
		$productResult = $db_handle->readData($sql);
	if(!empty($productResult)) { 
	<td><?php echo $productResult[0]["product_name"]; ?></td>
	<td><?php echo $productResult[0]["product_code"]; ?></td>
	<td><?php echo $productResult[0]["product_desc"]; ?></td>
	<td style="text-align:right;"><?php echo $productResult[0]["product_price"]; ?></td>
