Does anyone have an example of how to pass values between variables (from Storyline to server) using AJAX?

I need to create a Storyline module to call a user ID, hold the user ID in memory, collect a score, and pass both the user ID and the final score to a SQL database using AJAX.

I've asked this before, but I can no longer find the replies.  Thanks for your patience!

Hi B Jacobs,

I have recently integrated storyline in my ASP.NET MVC5 application. I don't get what do you mean by "hold the user ID in memory" ? If you can post more details about your project, I would love to look into it.

In my application, for passing variables back to my ASP.NET application, I have used async AJAX to post data to my application. Following is the code I have used:

 var player = GetPlayer();
var unitId = player.GetVar("UnitId");
var name = "Bjacobs";

var xhr;
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
else xhr = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
xhr.onreadystatechange = function ()
if (xhr.readyState == 4 && xhr.status == 200)
var serverResponse = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText);
var url = '<your URL to post variables>';"POST", url, true);
xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
