Would be great to help on this.  I'm sure someone with a good eye will see problem quickly.   It is not posting the value to the php script


		function myTester(thetitle)
		{
				$('<div>'+
				  '<input type="text" id="testrequest" placeholder="What is the name?" size="60"/>'+
				  '</div>').dialog({
				dialogClass:'shareClass',
			        title: thetitle,
			        width: 600,
					height: 300,
			        close: function(event, ui) { $(this).remove(); },
			        position: ['center','center'],
			        modal: false,
			        buttons: [
			            {
			                text: "Send Request",
			                click: function() { 
							$.ajax({
								url:'forms/sendResults.php',
								var testrequest=$("#testrequest").val(),
								type:'post',  
								data: $(testrequest).serialize(),
								success:function(result){
									$("button").html(result);
								}
							});
				  				$( this ).dialog( "close" ); 
							}
			            },
				     {
			                text: "Close",
			                click: function() { 
	
				  		$( this ).dialog( "close" ); 
					}
			            }

			        ]
			    });

Line 19:

var testrequest=$("#testrequest").val(),

This is not the syntax of a property. Did you mean:

testrequest : $("#testrequest").val(),

Thanks for such quick response.  Didnt solve it, but you did pick up one  syntax error.


This is what I have in the php script.

<?php echo "this is my test and should post value ".$_POST['testrequest'];

It should echo the value from the dialog.  The value is not posting to php script

Try this :
function myTester(thetitle)
{
	$('<div><input type="text" id="testrequest" placeholder="What is the name?" size="60"/></div>').dialog({
		dialogClass:'shareClass',
		title: thetitle,
		width: 600,
		height: 300,
		close: function(event, ui) { $(this).remove(); },
		position: ['center','center'],
		modal: false,
		buttons: [
			{
				text: "Send Request",
				click: function() { 
					$.post('forms/sendResults.php', { testrequest: $(testrequest).val() }, function(result){ alert(result);$("button").html(result);});
					$( this ).dialog( "close" ); 
				}
			},
			{
				text: "Close",
				click: function() { 
					$( this ).dialog( "close" ); 
				}
			}
		]
	});
}
