Polldaddy Polls Callback after Voting

Needless to say, Polldaddy Poll can be a very powerful poll system for your website/blog. Using its API, you can display polls however you like, and in any order you need. But did you know you can also add a callback function that will be executed after a successful vote? You can make such thing happen by defining the pd_callback variable, as shown below:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	var pd_callback = function(){
		alert('Your vote has been counted!');
	};
</script>
// Show the rest of the poll script here

The snippet should be self-explanatory ;). Now if you used my BWP Polldaddy Polls plugin or my Polldaddy class in the above mentioned article, just add the callback before the foreach loop:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	var pd_callback = function(){
		alert('Your vote has been counted!');
	};
</script>
<?php
$polldaddy_polls = bwp_get_polls(0, 'created', 'desc');
foreach ($polldaddy_polls as $poll)
{
?>
	<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="http://static.polldaddy.com/p/<?php echo $poll->id; ?>.js"></script>
	<noscript>
		<a href="http://polldaddy.com/poll/<?php echo $poll->id; ?>/"><?php echo $poll->content; ?></a>
	</noscript>
<?php
}
?>

You can also have a unique callback function for each poll, but this time you will have to put the callback function inside the foreach loop, like so:

<?php
$polldaddy_polls = bwp_get_polls(0, 'created', 'desc');
foreach ($polldaddy_polls as $poll)
{
?>
	<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
		var pd_callback_<?php echo $poll->id; ?> = function(){
			alert('Your vote for Poll <?php echo $poll->id; ?> been counted!');
		};
	</script>
	<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="http://static.polldaddy.com/p/<?php echo $poll->id; ?>.js"></script>
	<noscript>
		<a href="http://polldaddy.com/poll/<?php echo $poll->id; ?>/"><?php echo $poll->content; ?></a>
	</noscript>
<?php
}
?>

Of course, you are not limited to those simple alert callbacks. With all the poll data you have (thanks to my plugin or Polldaddy class =P), you can virtually do anything ;).
