Username availability checker with php and jquery

 First set a HTML form like this and save it as form.html

Do not forget to attach jQuery script, because it is where the magic lies

Now set up the php page, it is the place where the username availability will be checked

Code goes like this

save this as checker.php

we are done with the HTML and PHP coding, Now

Shall we start jQuery coding?

Now save it, it must be a working masterpiece, You must try it.

What have we just done?

Well, we created a simple form in html, created a php page which interacts with database, and a jquery script which works as bridge between both the files.

whenever you press a key on keyboard, the jQuery script(ajax) send the value to the php page, which checks that if value(username) is already existing in the database, and gives back the response.
