I have integrated the third party API for validating a correct email address with the domain. The API call is returning the value in the ajax call as Boolean.

How to retrieve the value from the API response in ajax?

The correct way to handle ajax requests with jquery is:

var jqxhr = $.ajax( "example.php" )
  .done(function( serverResponse) {
    alert( "success" );
  .fail(function() {
    alert( "error" );
  .always(function() {
    alert( "complete" );

The done function will be called if request is successfull, and serverResponse variable contains the returned values from your server.

See: http://api.jquery.com/jquery.ajax/

  • We can get the value in alert and not able to pass it to another function. I need to retrieve the value and based on that need to display error message May 17, 2018 at 5:41
