Using Ajax to send form data
I have a HTML/PHP form using using post to send form data to a script php file. I want to send the data with out the page reloading upon clicking the submit button.
I am wondering how do implement AJAX to allow this functionality.
If this question is beyond the scope of this Q&A if anyone could please point me in the right direction to a good tutorial That will allow me to implement this technology with out having to spend a couple of days learning how it all works. I am working with a very short deadline.
you can serialize and then post form data with jquery and optionally handle the response.
the following is an example from jquery's documentation
If this is your first AJAX experience, I recommend a good toolkit like jQuery.
You could use this jQuery plugin: http://www.matiasmancini.com.ar/jquery-plugin-ajax-form-validation-html5.html
It also has form validation and works on IE6.
but if you're looking for a step by step tutorial, then you might want to look at this.
