How to&Answers:

In the following line

<form method="post" action="display()">

the action should be the name of your script and you should call the function, Something like this

<form method="post" action="yourFileName.php">
    <input type="text" name="studentname">
    <input type="submit" value="click" name="submit"> <!-- assign a name for the button -->
</form>

<?php
function display()
{
    echo "hello ".$_POST["studentname"];
}
if(isset($_POST['submit']))
{
   display();
} 
?>

Answer:

you don’t need this code

<?php
function display()
{
echo "hello".$_POST["studentname"];
}
?>

Instead, you can check whether the form is submitted by checking the post variables using isset.

here goes the code

if(isset($_POST)){
echo "hello ".$_POST['studentname'];
}

Answer:

Assuming that your script is named x.php, try this

<?php 
   function display($s) {
      echo $s;
   }
?>
<html>
    <body>
        <form method="post" action="x.php">
            <input type="text" name="studentname">
            <input type="submit" value="click">
        </form>
        <?php
           if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']=='POST')
           {
               display();
           } 
        ?>
    </body>
</html>

Answer:

PHP is run on a server, Your browser is a client. Once the server sends all the info to the client, nothing can be done on the server until another request is made.

To make another request without refreshing the page you are going to have to look into ajax. Look into jQuery as it makes ajax requests easy

Answer:

If you want to call a function on clicking of submit button then you have
to use ajax or jquery,if you want to call your php function after submission of form

<input type="text" name="studentname">
<input type="submit" value="click">
</form>
<?php
function display()
{
echo "hello".$_POST["studentname"];
}
if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']=='POST')
{
       display();
} 
?>
</body>
</html>
