Tutorial :Processing html form in background



Question:

I have the following code -

   <form id="smsform" class="appnitro"  method="post" action="/form" onSubmit="alert('Your message has been delivered.');">                               <input type="hidden" value="<?php echo $message; ?>" name="message" />  

and so on... Now what i want is that when the form is submitted then instead of going to the page /form the current window should remain at the same location and the page /form to be processed in the background.


Solution:1

you need submit via ajax call

example :

if u want to use a jquery (js library)

look on :

Solution:2

That should be done with AJAX. jQuery makes this easy; http://jquery.malsup.com/form/ provides a solution that virtually does it for you.


Solution:3

Remove the action parameter from the form. Change the submit button to a custom button with a javascript code that performs the background task. See http://www.javaworld.com/jw-06-1996/jw-06-javascript.html to use javascript with forms.
