get() method

get() is a jQuery AJAX method that loads data from a server with the help of an HTTP GET request.

The syntax for the get() method is given below:

jQuery.get(URL, Data, Callback, Datatype)

The description of each parameter is as follows:

  • URL - the specific server address to which the HTTP GET request is made, along with the resource/web page required.
  • Data - the information sent to the server via the request URL, usually in the form of appended key-value pairs.
  • Callback - the function executed after the successful completion of the GET request. The callback function receives two arguments, data and textStatus. data contains the response from the server in the specified DataType. textStatus contains the status of the GET request: success, etc.
  • DataType - the type of data expected from the server, which can be JSON, text, HTML, XML, or others.

πŸ“ Note: In the get() method, URL is a required parameter, while Callback, Data, and DataType are optional parameters.
