Display Other Texts rather then English using PHP MySQL

When we want to display and store the data other than ENGLISH using PHP.

Below is the code used to save and retrieve the data in PHP.


where $db_connect is the "MySQL Host" connection handler. You can see the example below for the connection handler.

$db_connect = mysql_connect(HOST_NAME,USERNAME,PASSWORD);

By using the above, we can store and retrieve the data in different languages like Telugu, French, Hindi, German and many.

Note: And also a major note we need to be keep in mind, when we try to retrieve the same UTF-8 converted data using AJAX. We should not use "mysql_set_charset" as AJAX by default sets the content as "UTF-8"

Javascript: trim function support in all browsers

In Javascript, when we want to remove spaces in a string, we would be using trim function which is supported in all major browsers. See below code to use trim function in Javascript.

var str = "     message to trim    ";
document.write(str.trim());  // this code will prints as message to trim in the body.

But the above trim() function doesnot support in IE. To support the same functionality in IE too, add the below code to work as expected.

if (typeof String.prototype.trim !== "function") {
    String.prototype.trim = function () {
        return this.replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g, "")
