jquery on submit not running

I can't figure out what I am missing.  The page is called index.html.  
When i click the submit button, the jquery submit code does not seem to be running at all.  The text boxes don't get the value they should and the alerts are not even firing.

eventually when this is working the action is going to be changed to a php file that will use the numbers in the text boxes.

What am I missing???

<html>
<head>
	<style type="text/css">
		.option { 
			text-align: center;
		}

		th {
			width: 100px;
			background-color:#6699FF;
		}

		th.sectionHeader {
			text-align: left;
			font-size: 20;
			background-color:transparent;
		}

		.altShade {
			background-color:#ABC6BD;
		}
	</style>

	<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
	<script>
	$('#survey').submit(function()
	{ alert("got here");
		var result = 0;
		for (i=1; i<8; i++)
		{
			result = 0;
			$(".S"+i+":checked").each(function () {
				result += parseFloat($(this).val());
			});
			alert(result);
			$("#sectionTotal"+i).val(result);
		}
		alert(result);
		return true; 
	});
	</script>

</head>

When u set the submit of the form. Form on Js side is createted yet.

Move ur <script> block after the form.. then u ll see its working

<html>
<head>
	<style type="text/css">
		.option { 
			text-align: center;
		}

		th {
			width: 100px;
			background-color:#6699FF;
		}

		th.sectionHeader {
			text-align: left;
			font-size: 20;
			background-color:transparent;
		}

		.altShade {
			background-color:#ABC6BD;
		}
	</style>

	<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<body>		
	<form id="survey" action="index.html" method="post">

that did the trick.  

But I notice that $_POST["sectionTotal1"] has no value on the 'receiving' php page, but  $_POST["S1Q1"] does.  I am guessing that is because the sectionTotal1 is populated during the submit and not prior to??  Although when I change the submit function to return false I see that the text boxes are populated correctly.

Two things

1. Although having your scripts at the end of your page is a good practice, you should also wrap your jquery script in document ready code like shown below. This will guarantee that your code does not run until the page has loaded.
$(function() {
  $('#survey').submit(function()  {
  alert("got here");
    var result = 0;
    for (i=1; i<8; i++)
    {
      result = 0;
      $(".S"+i+":checked").each(function () {
        result += parseFloat($(this).val());
      });
      alert(result);
      $("#sectionTotal"+i).val(result);
    }
    alert(result);
    return true; 
  });
});

Open in new window


2. Your sectionTotal value is not coming through because the element does not have a name.  Change to
<input type='text' id='sectionTotal1' name='sectionTotal' value=''/>

Open in new window


That should resolve both issues
