Submit all Razor forms on the page via Javascript/jQuery

I am using C# MVC with Razor.
I have a form tied to a model in a partial view that is rendered twice on a page, each with different model contents. They have each their save submit button:
<input type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" value="Save" />

Open in new window

This works perfectly. When pushing the button, the respective model in the respective form gets posted to the server and the server updates the changes.

Now I want a button that submits both forms at the same time, and that is not a part of the partialview that these forms consist of.
I was thinking some sort JavaScript / jQuery based method that gets fired and handles the whole thing.

Any suggestions?

This is how I do it at work

1. Add click event for the button in document.ready
2. Get the form input values in jQuery
3. Pass to Controller using Ajax

I don't have my work code in front of me but this is roughly how the code looks like

1. If your button is btnSubmit and you have some input values ...for example...a textbox named txtName

 $("#btnSubmit").click(function(){

   var nameVal = $("#txtName").val();

   //Ajax call to Controller her

    $.ajax({
                type: "POST",
                url: "/yourcontoller/youractionname,
                data:{ name: nameVal },
                contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                dataType: "json",
                success: function() {....},
                error: function() {......}
            });


}

//in controller

[HttpPost]
        public ActionResult getName(string name)
        {

      }

Open in new window

Yes, I guess that will work. I was hoping on some magic way to trigger all the submits at once so that I wouldn't have to write code to handle it myself :) but I guess I will have to step up to my laziness and get things done ;)
