How can I redirect to a specific page in an ajax callback using Drupal 7, I've already tested this method:

function my_ajax_callback($form, &$form_state) {
  if (!user_is_anonymous()) {
    return $form['my_fieldset'];
  else {

but that code doesn't redirect to /login when current user is anonymous.

  • Do you know that the function is called. Try to call a die statement to see if it is called. – Jdrupal Jan 3 at 16:19
  • Even die() in an ajax callback can't be used it will generate only an ajax error popup, ajax callback should return something as I guess but using drupal_goto() does not return any statement, so no change will be applied while calling drupal_goto(), the redirection should be done differently I guess but I don't have any idea how to resolve that. – MiharbKH Jan 3 at 16:29
  • Isn't it because ajax callbacks are handled on the system/ajax menu route and thus issuing a goto won't have any effect? I would see if you could set a form state property and check that value in the form building method, if TRUE, try the goto. – Kevin Jan 3 at 16:44
  • Smart idea Kevin but sadly it generate an ajax error popup too, this time the source path of error is /system/ajax, what I did is in my_ajax_callback() I add $form_state['redirect'] = TRUE; instead of drupal_goto() call, and in my form builder I add if (isset($form_state['redirect']) && $form_state['redirect']) { drupal_goto('login'); } – MiharbKH Jan 3 at 17:00

I had the same problem. You should try this:

$commands[] = ctools_ajax_command_redirect('login');
return array('#type' => 'ajax', '#commands' => $commands);
