I am working on my first plugin, and I am having some confusion. I am trying to figure out how to set a handler for a button on my plugin UI. Here is how the button is displayed:

<li class="upload-files-sec"><a id="upload_image_button" href="#" title="" data-tooltip="Upload Image" data-placement="bottom" class="upload-btn"><i class="fa fa-cloud-upload"></i></a>
</li>

The confusion is how I am supposed to link that to an action. I know using Jquery I could do something like this:

 $('#upload_image_button').click(function(e) {
//Do action here.
}

But what about php? If I had some php I wanted the button to execute, how would run it when the button is clicked?

Some which PHP? PHP is server side language, you would need to either proceed to URL or perform Ajax request to one. –  Rarst Jan 20 at 0:13

Agree with Rarst. You probably need AJAX –  helgatheviking Jan 20 at 1:13
    
I figured that would be the only way to do it. Ajax it is then. –  user1632018 Jan 20 at 20:21
