This could be a problem:

echo "<form name='myform' id='myform'>";
	 echo	 "<input name='da' type='text' id='da' value='none'>";
	 echo	 "<a href='#' class='add'>Add</a>";
 	 echo "</form>";

You can only have ONE 'id' per page. myform and da will repeat when you add new instances.

//EDIT

I just realized that I don't have a clue what you're trying to do with this code.

or try this:
concatenate $i with your text box id or name..

<?php

for ($i=1;$i<10;++$i)
{//currently only one textbox for testing purpose
  echo "<form name='myform' id='myform' method='post'>";
  echo "<input name='da'"$i" type='text' id='da'"$i" value='none'>";
  echo "<a href='javascript:submit_form();' class='add'>Add</a>";
  echo "</form>";
}
?>
<script type="text/javascript">
function submit_form()
{
    document.myform.submit();
}
</script>

@ardav, thanks for your reply

You can only have ONE 'id' per page. myform and da will repeat when you add new instances.

For testing purpose id is given static , later I will assign dynamic id based on for loop.

I just realized that I don't have a clue what you're trying to do with this code.

when page is rendered will have like this.

<textbox1 data> <add button>
<textbox1 data> <add button>
<textbox1 data> <add button>
...
<textbox10 data> <add button>

what I am trying is

1. Created each textbox and add button pair inside each form dynamically using for loop.
(for testing i created only one pair).Should I have form for every pair?
2. when add is clicked value within textbox (#da) should be send to addnew.php through ajax.

following code is displaying data correctly

alert(da);

but in addnew.php file I am not getting $_POST(). Is that means data is not passed to the file or is there something wrong ajax code.


@shanti

can I have multiple form with same id. If not then how i can send the only one textbox data ie just before the add button when form is submitted.

OK, You can't have multiple forms with the same id, but you can have names with the same value - these will be passed as an array, e.g. name="myform[]".

In this case, you'll need to access the 'name' attribute as opposed to the 'id'. However, I would suggest just the one form and have multiples of the textbox + button inside said form.

alert(da);

won't work as you've commented out the initialisation of the js variable called 'da'. You can access it directly of course by $('#da')... BUT, if you have multiple identical ids then only the last one (*I think*) will show. As I said, you could use the name attribute to receive an array of values OR provide each 'da' with a counter as mentioned by Shanti.

If your addnew.php script isn't receiving the data, have you references the file correctly here:

url: "addnew.php",

does it need to be something like:

url: "includes/addnew.php",

I'd set up a static, dummy post and see if you're getting any response:

$.ajax({
                    type: "POST",
                    url: "addnew.php", basic: 'test me now',
                    success: function(data) {
                        if (data == "whatever") {
                            alert('whatever returned');
                        } else {
                            alert('not whatever');
                        }
                    }
 
                });

Sorry, changed the data attribute - naughty!

var myvar = "whatever";
        $.ajax({
   		type: "POST",
   		url: "includes/addnew.php",
   		data: "da=" + myvar,
   		success: function(msg){
    		  alert(msg)	
   		}
 	});

I *think* you forgot to add the 'key' to your post parameters.

No ardav it is in the same root folder not in includes/.
BTW alert(msg) is showing complete code of addnew.php code like below(I made some changes) .That means success:function is triggered.

<? php
if (isset($_POST['da']))
{
	 $d = $_POST['da'];
	 echo $d;
}
?>

I am still not sure whether the code entering inside the isset block or not. Is there a way that I can get echo or die messages like database connection problem that can be shown on form page.

If you're getting the response and it is being alerted by JS, it seems it's working.

yes ardav its works fine now. Now I am able to display massage in #result div.
one and only problem remaining is fadeout().

when I tried fallowing code it is working fine as form name is hard coded.

$('form#myform').fadeOut();

but when I change it to code like below form is not fading out. Although that form itself is parent of add button.

$(this).parent().fadeOut();
