  • IE8/jQuery Not Playing Ball

    Code:
    $("#submitButton").click(function(){
      $.post("/dosomething.php",
             {action:"go",email:$("#email").val()},
             function(html){ alert(html); },
             "html");
      return false;
    })
    The 'dosomething.php' script returns '1' on success, or an error message on failure (for example, 'Invalid email address'.) However when the script is going to return '1' (ie. it succeeds) IE8 ignores the 'return false;' line and sends the visitor to the script directly... any ideas why this would be? Doesn't happen in anything else I've tested

    The only help I can offer is that you should be using the .submit() function on the form element, not a click function on the submit button.

    http://docs.jquery.com/Events/submit

    Other than that, I'm not really sure what you're doing. Why validate the form with PHP?

    There are loads of jQuery validation plugins (scripts) out there.

      Dah, sometimes I really should RTFM. That fixed the issue, all works perfectly now, thanks a lot

      (And I'm using PHP for compatibility; I'll add some pretty client-side validation later...)

        Yeah, that was sort of my point.

        I encountered a woman last week who was praising Vlad Putin--and how "strong" he is, and how "popular" he is.

        At large size, I would agree, however, at just under 2'' square, I disagree.

        Designing wraps is usually done in Illustrator, there's a website where you can get every type of car, with all sides. My last internship usually used that.

        You'd also need some knowledge...

        No, just the democracies.
