jquery create form and post dynamically

Im trying to write a simple script to create a form to submit values to a page via a POST method and then redirect to that form (as you cannot post on a redirect in jQuery apparently).

So, Ive got the following code:-
              
$('<form />', { action: 'sharer.php', method: 'POST' target:'_self' }).append(
                $('<input />', { type: 'text', id: 'rname', value: 'Name' }),
                $('<input />', { type: 'text', id: 'rdescription', value='Test description' }),
                $('<input />', { type: 'text', id: 'tags', value: 'text' }),
                $('<input />', { type: 'text', id: 'savebutton', value: 'Save' }).submit();
            );

Open in new window


But it doesnt seem to recognise the submit() command at the end.

Any ideas what Im doing wrong? Ive seen several examples of doing this, but like the way this is, as its very tidy.

Any suggestions?

Hi,
some typos and the wrong bracket order. Can you please try the following:
$('<form>', { action: 'sharer.php', method: 'POST', target:'_self' }).append(
	$('<input>', { type: 'text', id: 'rname', value: 'Name' }),
	$('<input>', { type: 'text', id: 'rdescription', value: 'Test description' }),
	$('<input>', { type: 'text', id: 'tags', value: 'text' }),
	$('<input>', { type: 'text', id: 'savebutton', value: 'Save' })).submit();
