In my .phtml i have:

], function ($) {
        url: "get_shipment_info.php",
        type: "get", //send it through get method
        data: { 
            company: ManiFacturerName
        success: function(response) {
        error: function(xhr) {
            //Delete the object
            var element = document.getElementById('shipment_info');

The php file

url: "get_shipment_info.php",

is just echo "1"; The problem is i get the response after 7seconds. I dont know why...

  • It is an issue with your server response. Don't think it is an issue with magento

  • How so the page loads fine its just the ajax call being slow?

  • This looks more like an infrastructure issue rather than magento, therefore more details about the setup should be included. for example, if you run the the cli that get_shipment_info.php - how long does it take to run.. that echo "1" is the only statement in the file or magento's bootstrap is included? etc..

You can just set below code in your phtml file to use ajax, You have to change your customurl in below code,

<script type="text/javascript">
    require(["jquery"],function($) {
        $(document).ready(function() {
            var customurl = "<?php echo $this->getUrl().'frontname/index/index'?>";
                url: customurl,
                type: 'POST',
                dataType: 'json',
                data: {
                    customdata1: 'test1',
                    customdata2: 'test2',
            complete: function(response) {             
                country = response.responseJSON.default_country;
                state = response.responseJSON.state;         
                console.log(state+' '+country);   
                error: function (xhr, status, errorThrown) {
                    console.log('Error happens. Try again.');

inside your controller file execute() method,

 use Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultFactory;
 public function execute()
        $resultPage = $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_PAGE);

        $response = $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_RAW);
        $response->setHeader('Content-type', 'text/plain');
        $country = 'india';
        $state = 'gujarat';
                    'default_country' => $country,
                    'state' => $state,
        return $response;
  • could you be more specific this is for another example..
