    ajax to load content

    I donīt know if this is the right place but I did not find an ajax forum so here it goes.

    I am trying to have a page where I have a div called content, "the div is empty" I want to load some content using ajax, there is a menu with 4 items

    item1 = ajax.php
    item2 = ajax2.php
    item3 = ajax3.php
    item4 = ajax4.php

    then I have this code

    Code JavaScript:
    function loadXMLDoc()
    var xmlhttp;
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
      {// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
      xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
      {// code for IE6, IE5
      xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
      if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)

    What I am trying to do is use the same code for every item in the menu with its respective page without having to copy paste the code 4 times, can someone give me an idea on how I can do this.

    I was thinking of having a variable that changes the ajax.php with a for loop but the page names are not exactly the way I typed them so I canīt just have

    var number=1;
    var page="ajax" + number + ".php";

    since the names might be index.php history.php about.php or other names, I am starting to build this site so I dont have the exact names at the moment

    The "people" examples in the code and examples provided by the the Bulletproof Ajax book would be the best resource for you.
