jQuery Contact Form

Published on Saturday 12, November 2011
I've finally started to dive into jQuery. I figured what better way to start than to make a contact form.  Check out the demo. Javascript
<script>

$('#contact-form').submit(function() {

var submit = true;

//Validate Email
if($('#field-email').val() == '') {
$('.email').show().fadeOut(8000);
submit = false;
}

//Validate Name
if($('#field-name').val() == '') {
$('.name').show().fadeOut(8000);
submit = false;
}

//Validate Subject
if($('#field-subject').val() == '') {
$('.subject').show().fadeOut(8000);
submit = false;
}

//Validate Subject
if($('#field-message').val() == '') {
$('.message').show().fadeOut(8000);
submit = false;
}


//Post form data to PHP mail script, script will print out true or false.
if(submit) {
  $.post('mailer.php', $('#contact-form').serialize(), function(data) {

//$("#form-div").html(data);
if(data == 'true') {
//alert('True!');
//Change these values to set a variable, see if that helps view submit() doc.
$('#form-div').html('Thank you for contacting us');

return true;

} else {

$('#error').text('Sorry, there was an error. Please try again').fadeOut(4000);
return false;
}
}

);
}
return false;
});
</script>
