----------------------------------------------------------

<script type="text/javascript">

// prepare the form when the DOM is ready 
 
    // bind form using ajaxForm 
    $('#addform').ajaxForm({ 
        // target identifies the element(s) to update with the server response 
        target: '#htmlExampleTarget', 
 
        // success identifies the function to invoke when the server response 
        // has been received; here we apply a fade-in effect to the new content 
        success: function() { 
            $('#htmlExampleTarget').fadeIn('slow'); 
        } 
		
    });

      <?php
} while ($row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1));
  $rows = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
  if($rows > 0) {
      mysql_data_seek($Recordset1, 0);
	  $row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);

   echo '<div style="background-color:#ffa; padding:20px">' . $fileno . 'Is already in the database' . '</div>';

}else{
   //insert into db;
   echo '<div style="background-color:#ffa; padding:20px">' . $fileno . "Box: " . $box . $authorised . 'Successfull' . '</div>';
   $sql = "INSERT INTO `files` (customer, authorisation, boxstatus, boxref, custref, filestatus) VALUES ('$customer', '$authorised', '$boxstatus', '$box', '$fileno', $filestatus)";
   $result = runSQL($sql) or die(mysql_error());
   //echo 'This record is valid';
   //header("Location: http://localhost/sample/admin/files/index.php");
		//exit();

I'm hardly an expert on this, just getting AJAX (without JQuery) to work last month.  But I did get it to work.

What I'd try is making the distance between <div> and </div> much smaller.  I had some trouble (like what you describe) when I used a large division.  When I get it small, very small, I have much more luck.

I was looking at the other div.  That was a mistake on my part.  

I looked at your code some more but I don't know enough about JQuery.  Sorry.

thanks. i have narrowed it down to the facybox plugin. if i open the form in facybox then the form plugin does not work  does anyone know if facybox strips tags from form or html? thanks

Since you solved this yourself and I'm the only person who has responded, I suggest you try the following (with the caveat that I've never tried this myself).

1. Accept your solution  (I don't know if you can just do that but I won't object and nobody else is likely to get the close notice other than moderators).  

I *think* that will give you a refund.  (You could ask in the moderator section).

2. Post a new question.
