I open up the modal window with my form in it. Click 'Add' and the form validates fine but doesn't submit the url. Any idea what I'm missing?

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	

$(function () {

$("#testdriveform").validate({

submitHandler: function (form) {
    $.ajax({
        type: "POST",
        url: "dplates/add/",
        data: $("#testdriveform").serialize()
    })
    .done(function (response) {
        if (response.success == 'success') {               
            alert('success');                       
        } else {
            alert('fail');
        }
    });
return false; 
},
        rules: {
            dPlate: {
                required: true,
                minlength: 6,
                maxlength: 6
            },
            rep_id: {
                required: true
            },
            firstName: {
                required: true
            },
            lastName: {
                required: true
            },
            phone: {
                required: true
            }
        }
    });

    $("#testdrive").dialog({
        autoOpen: false,
        width: 550,
        modal: true,
        buttons: {
            Add: function () {
                $("#testdriveform").submit();
            },
            Cancel: function () {
                $(this).dialog("close");
            }
        }
    });

$( "#newdrive").live('click', function() {
$( "#testdrive" ).dialog( "open" );
id = $(this).data("id");
return false;
});
});
</script>

Open in new window

Are you sure you are not getting in javascript errors?

Check your console for errors - if there is an error it will stop execution of the form which could be preventing the submit.

Do you have a test link we can look at?

Otherwise - can you post more of your code so we can test it.

HI,
After a nights sleep: problem was the rule for dPlate. something to do with minlength and maxlength. Removed, submitted perfectly.
Have to check the docs on it.
Thanks for taking the time.
