my Form Page:

 <form id="formcountry" class="icountry" name="formcountry">
        <label>Country Name</label>
        <input type="text" id="Country" class="input-block-level" name="Country" placeholder="Country Name">
        <span class="help-block">Type Country Name as [USA, India, Canada].</span>
        <label>Country Code</label>
        <input type="text" id="countrycode" class="input-large" name="countrycode" placeholder="Country Code">
        <select name="status" id="status">
          <option value="Yes">Visible</option>
          <option value="No">Hidden</option>
        <input type="button" class="btn submitcountry" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit">
        <input type="hidden" name="ID" value="1" id="ID" />

Hey there,

var i = $("#AddCountry").html(result);

Open in new window

Seems like you are attaching a jquery command to a variable. Doesn't seem like that should work. Any js errors? Maybe you just want to do:

var i = result;

Open in new window
