How To Submit Form In Jquery

Submitting a form using jQuery is a crucial aspect of web development. It allows you to send data from the client-side to the server-side without the need to reload the entire page. In this blog post, we will go through the process of submitting a form using jQuery, discussing the various methods and techniques available.

Using the submit() Method

The most basic way to submit a form using jQuery is to use the submit() method. This method is used to bind an event handler to the “submit” event or to trigger the event on the specified element.

To use the submit() method, you should first create an HTML form:

<form id="myForm">
  <input type="text" name="name" placeholder="Your Name">
  <input type="email" name="email" placeholder="Your Email">
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">

Next, include the jQuery library in your HTML file and create a JavaScript file to handle the form submission:

<script src=""></script>
<script src="submitForm.js"></script>

In the submitForm.js file, you should write the following code:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $("#myForm").submit(function(event) {
    event.preventDefault(); // Prevent the default form submission behavior

    // Here you can do whatever you want with the form data
    console.log($(this).serialize()); // Serialize and log the form data

In the code above, we used the submit() method to bind an event handler to the “submit” event of the form. When the form is submitted, the event handler is called, preventing the default form submission behavior using event.preventDefault(). Then, the form data is serialized and logged to the console.

Using AJAX to Submit the Form

Submitting a form using AJAX allows you to send the form data asynchronously to the server without the need for a full page refresh. To submit a form using AJAX in jQuery, you can use the $.ajax() method:

$("#myForm").submit(function(event) {

    url: 'submitForm.php', // URL of the server-side script to handle the form data
    type: 'POST', // HTTP method (GET or POST)
    data: $(this).serialize(), // Serialize the form data
    success: function(response) {
      // Handle the server response here
    error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
      // Handle any errors here
      console.log('Error: ' + textStatus, errorThrown);

In the code above, we used the $.ajax() method to send an asynchronous HTTP request to the server-side script. When the request is successful, the success callback function is called, handling the server response. If there is an error, the error callback function is called, handling any errors that may have occurred.


In this blog post, we’ve discussed how to submit a form using jQuery, either by using the submit() method or by using AJAX. Both methods offer a smooth user experience and allow for easy handling of form data on the client and server sides. Choose the method that best suits your specific use case, and happy coding!
