  • And one more thing u r forgot to include JQuery as u r using $.ajax....also u r using same url as u mentioned above – Sunny Dec 24 '13 at 12:01

For your particular case, there's really no need to use jquery async call (at least not in the terms of 'manually' building your async request; solution using commandButton will still generate async request 'under the hood', but you won't need to handcode it). My suggestion would be to use custom controller in combination with apex:outputPanel refreshed upon each call to apex:commandButton's action (specified through commandButton's rerender attribute).

In this case your VF page might look something like:

<apex:page controller="YourReportPageController" > 
    <apex:form >
        <b>Enter Text</b>

        <apex:inputText id="pv2" value="{!pv2Text}" />
        <apex:commandButton value="Report Generation" action="{!generateReport}" rerender="reportOutputDiv" />

        This dynamic div
        <apex:outputPanel id="reportOutputDiv" layout="block" style="border:1px solid;width:1000px;height:500px;">
            <apex:outputText value="{!htmlOutput}" />


...with YourReportPageController looking like this:

public with sharing class YourReportPageController
    public string pv2Text { get; set; }
    public string htmlOutput { get; set; }

    public YourReportPageController()
        // whatever logic you need to do on load

    public PageReference generateReport()
        // do whatever you need to do to generate report
        // ...
        // if you need to use value from the inputField,
        // simply access it via pv2Text variable

        // Assign report output value to htmlOutput variable
        htmlOutput = "bla bla";

        // return null in order to avoid redirect (stay on the same page)
        return null;

Hope it helps.
