I'd like someone to just give me a hand getting a form to open up facebox and submit the form details via that.

Ok they process I'm looking for help on is this

When a user enters the details into the contact form and clicks "submit" it needs to then open up a facebox window and run the php file in that.
so it will either pop up and say errors with certain feilds or message sent.
Right now I can't seem to figure it out so i stripped the facebox code out and put my html code back to normal.

I', not too fussed weather the php file opens from a remote file or if it is stored in a hidden Div on the page its self.

Thankyou for your help in advance :)

... then open up a facebox window and run the php file in that.

I think you will find that a facebox "window" is not independent of the window in which it is opened. ie. you can't "run the php file" in it. Therefore not possible in the way you describe.

However, you should be able to achieve what you want by calling your php script with an AJAX (Google it and/or search Daniweb) request, then handling the response in a way that is compatible with facebox.

All you need to do is learn AJAX (or jQuery) and study the facebox documentation.
