Hi:

I'm having an issue posting to MySQL using the animated_form.html below.

My objective is to have 4 db entries posted to MySQL when the user clicks on the <a href="javascript: submitform()"><input alt="Show Results" id="btn_results" src="a_data/form_btn_show_results.png" type="image"></a> image.

The form uses jquery and it produces 0 results in MySQL.
Using the simple_form.html file (see very bottom code), my process populates the MySQL data.

MySQL Table:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `dbtablename` (
  `software` varchar(30) NOT NULL,
  `patients` int(11) default NULL,
  `reimbursement` int(11) default NULL,
  `rejection` int(11) default NULL,
  KEY `software` (`software`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

HTML form = animated_form.html

JQuery scripts are:
jQuery JavaScript Library v1.3.2 - file is named: jquery.js
jQuery validation plug-in 1.6 - file is names jquery_002.js
jquery.qtip. The jQuery tooltip plugin Version : 1.0.0-rc3 - file is named jquery_003.js

My submit buttons are image buttons.

My processor = insert.php

<?php

ini_set('display_errors',1);
error_reporting(E_ALL);

$con = mysql_connect("localhost","dbuser","dbpassword");
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_select_db("dbname", $con);

$sql="INSERT INTO dbtablename (software, patients, reimbursement, rejection) VALUES ('$_POST[software]','$_POST[patients]','$_POST[reimbursement]','$_POST[rejection]')";

if (!mysql_query($sql,$con))
  {
  die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_close($con)
?>

I am confident in my insert.php file as using this simple form works fine as follows:
simple_form.html

<html>
<body>
<center>
<form name="myform" action="insert.php" method="post">
Software: <input type="text" name="software" /><br/>
Patients: <input type="text" name="patients" /><br/>
Reimbursement: <input type="text" name="reimbursement" /><br/>
rejection: <input type="text" name="rejection" /><br/>
<input alt="Show Results" id="btn_results" src="a_data/form_btn_show_results.png" type="image">
</form>
</center>
</body>
</html>

I know the issue is JQuery related, however, I have no idea how it is blocking the MySQL output of the form in my animated_form.html

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards and happy and safe holidays,
dennishall

$("#roi_calculator").submit(function(event) {
  event.preventDefault();

This prevents the actual submit to take place.

Excellent JQuery skills.

Thanks a million pritaeas:

You solved this. I was originally using this for debug and forget to comment it out.

Have a great, safe, and happy holiday season.

All the best,

pritaeas: I have one other issue now and hope you could maybe assist again.

When I submit my form, it now writes to the DB, however, because I'm now successfully calling insert.php I'm not retaining my form so a user can see statistical results upon submit.

I know that AJAX is the solution, however, I have never combined AJAX with JQuery in this environment - so I'm lost (go figure) :)

I appended the end of the last SCRIPT in the head so it now looks as follows:

$("#roi_calculator").validate(
	{
		rules:{
			patients:{
				required:true,
				digits:true
			},
			reimbursement:{
				required:true,
				digits:true
			}
		},
		messages:{
			patients:{
				required: "Please enter an average amount of patients seen each month."
			},
			reimbursement:{
				required: "Please enter a dollar amount for claim reimbursement."
			}
		},
		errorLabelContainer:("#instructions"),
		errorElement: "p",
		errorPlacement: function(error, element){
			error.appendTo($("div.form_btns"));
		}
	}
)
}
)
// inserted new form submission code
			submitHandler: function(form) {
				// do other stuff for a valid form
				$.post('insert.php', $("#myform").serialize(), function(data) {
					$('#results').html(data);
				});
			}

and removed the insert.php from my form action=""
The result is that the form redisplays with emty information and I no longer write to the DB.

Your input did correct the issue, but I actually need the form to expand and show the results div after Show Results is clicked.

Have you any idea how / where in the script I can implement AJAX to allow me to send info to the DB and still have the Results div display?

Your time and skills are greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,
dennishall

pritaeas: No need for help, I resolved this by changing my AJAX script in the head to the following:

$(document).ready(function(){
	// Email Signup
	$("form#roi_calculator").submit(function() {
		var dataStr = $("#roi_calculator").serialize();
		$.ajax({
			type: "POST",
			url: "insert.php",
			data: dataStr,
			success: function(del){
				$('form#roi_calculator').hide();
				$('#instructions').fadeIn();
				}
			});
			return false;
		});
	});

and then added s sleep(3in seconds) command in my insert.php

Best Regards,
dennishall

Sorry. Since you had already marked this thread solved, I no longer followed this. Glad to see you fixed it yourself (+1).

I ran into another snag with MySql UPDATE so thjought I would reference that post in this one...
http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread334540.html

I have furthered my code as now I have a registration process and session vars being passed (session vars - I'm sure - are my issue) in this matter.
