Hello All;
I am going to be using ASP Classic.

I need a simple Form Submit using jQuery.
Can someone please provide me a simple example.

It needs to have a <textarea> in the form.

Nothing flashy, just a simple demostration that "works".

thanks for the links.
I have been trying out some examples, and what I need to know is this.

The ajax function that i have been using for the last year will not work with ie8 for one that that I am having to do.
jQuery will work, BUT. I cannot get the example that I have to work, as I do not fully understand it enough.

In the link
http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.post/


it shows several ways to do it, but not a fully example.

could you possibly show me and example of sending data to the next page?


basically.

Page1.asp (holds a text field)
Page2.asp (holds whatever needs to send the data back...  response.write mytext  )

Thanks

OK.

I found this code, with was designed for PHP
http://www.queness.com/post/160/create-a-ajax-based-form-submission-with-jquery
and I have cut out all the stuff that I do not need, as I only need a <textarea> and a submit button.

in the [show.asp]
The only thing that I have in it right now is just

<%
response.write request.form("MyText")
%>

I am starting off with just the basics, to test and get this thing to work.
BUT, When I add text into the textarea, I get the warning message that is in the code.

Can someone please help me in making this send the data from the textarea to the show.asp...

OK people.
I feel like beating Microsoft.

I found another script that I got working in FF but will NOT work in IE8
Can someone with some AJAX/jQuery knowledge tell me WHY this does not work in IE8?
It works on the site that I got it from, but will not work on my system or on my hosting provider.

Please help someone.... Anyone!

To get everyone up to speed that may come in to this thread.

The post above http:#a33655482
This works great in FF and Chrome
BUT will not work in IE8

The link to this code that works across all browsers is here
http://jquery.malsup.com/form/#html

It seems simple enough to follow, but I am at a loss as to why it works in other browsers
But not in IE8. Which I am pretty sure, means that it is not going to work in previous versions either. (Referring to my code I have presented above)

And a wrap up.
The show1.asp only has
<%
response.write request.form("MyText")
%>
