I need to access helper class function through ajax request.

In JS file :-

var sbfootscores = {};

        sbfootscores.getTeams = function(competition_id){
                success: function (data) {

In helper Class:-

public static function getTeams(){
        //i need to access this function 

What url to put in ajax's options url??

Any Help will be appreciated.

Assuming your module is utilising the com_ajax component that is included in Joomla 3.2+ then you can use the following:

url: 'index.php?option=com_ajax&module=NAME&method=getTeams&format=json'

Have a look at the Ajax Interface documentation for more information:


  • thank you. It helped but is there any other way to get this done without com_ajax ? Commented Jan 23, 2015 at 9:11
  • Yes, but I would not recommend it. com_ajax is there to make your life much easier. If you need to support older versions of Joomla that don't include the com_ajax component, then you can always display a warning saying the user must download/install it. There is a standalone version of it that's available to install ;)
