Form Submit With AJAX Passing Form Data To PHP Without Page Refresh

To submit a form with AJAX and pass the form data to PHP without page refresh, you can follow these steps:

  1. HTML Form:
    Start by creating an HTML form with the necessary inputs. For example:

    <form>
        <input>
        <input>
        <button>Submit</button>
    </form>
    
  2. JavaScript AJAX:
    Next, add JavaScript code to handle form submission using AJAX. In this example, we’ll use the jQuery library for simplicity:

    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#myForm').submit(function(e) {
            e.preventDefault(); // Prevent form submission
    
            // Serialize form data
            var formData = $(this).serialize();
    
            // AJAX request
            $.ajax({
                type: 'POST',
                url: 'your-php-file.php', // Replace with your PHP file path
                data: formData,
                success: function(response) {
                    // Handle success response
                    console.log(response);
                },
                error: function(xhr, status, error) {
                    // Handle error response
                    console.error(xhr.responseText);
                }
            });
        });
    });
    
  3. PHP File:
    Finally, create a PHP file (your-php-file.php in the example above) to process the form data. You can access the form inputs using the $_POST superglobal. For example:

    <?php
    $name = $_POST['name'];
    $email = $_POST['email'];
    
    // Perform any necessary processing/validation
    
    // Send response
    echo 'Form data submitted successfully.';
    ?>
    

That’s it! When the form is submitted, the JavaScript code will serialize the form data and send it to the specified PHP file using an AJAX request. The PHP file can then process the form data and send a response back to the JavaScript code. You can handle the response in the success and error callbacks of the AJAX request.
