jquery validation with ajaxForm

Hello,

I have combined jquery ajaxForm and validation plugins and it works... it only submits the form when the form is valid. I did it like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#submitForm').click(function() {
        if ($('#contactForm').valid()) {
            $('#loading').fadeIn("slow");
            $('#contactForm').ajaxForm(function(data) {
                if (data==1){
                    $('#success').fadeIn("slow");
                    $('#contactForm').resetForm();
                    $('#loading').fadeOut("slow");
                    $('#success').animate({opacity: 1.0}, 2000)
                    $('#success').fadeOut("slow");
                  }
                else if (data==2){
                    $('#badserver').fadeIn("slow");
                    $('#loading').fadeOut("slow");
                }
            });
        }
    });
});



Thanks
</script>

Is there a better way to do this? Or can you see and fault with this code?

Thanks

It looks fine to me.  The only thing I might change would be to chain some of your fades, so that one element fades in after the previous element has faded out, instead of the same time.  So for example in your failure part, I might do something like this:

else if (data==2){
  $('#loading').fadeOut('slow',function() {
    $('#badserver').fadeIn('slow');
  };
}

This ensures that your loading message is gone before you load the error message.  That's relatively minor and really just a personal preference, but other than that the script looks fine.
