jQuery Ajax - Sending form data

Hello
I have the following code to send form data to a php script, with jQuery Ajax, withouut reloading the page.
But, when I press the Submit button it opens the "page.php", and the alert() isn't displayed.

Code: Select all

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $('#form').submit(function(e) {
    var form_data = $(this).serialize();
    $.ajax({
      type: 'POST',
      url: '/page.php',   
      data: form_data,
      success: function() {
        alert('Message sent');
      }
    });
  });
});
</script>

- How to make it work?

Hi,
You have to call preventDefault() method to stop default action.

Code: Select all

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $('#form').submit(function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();  // STOP default action
    e.unbind();  // unbind. to stop multiple form submit
    var form_data = $(this).serialize();  // get form data into a string with pairs: name=value
    $.ajax({
      type: 'POST',
      url: '/page.php',   
      data: form_data,
      success: function() {
        alert('Message sent');
      }
    });
  });
});
</script>
