Validation - Stop ajax if false or proceed is true.

bootbox.confirm("Are you sure you wish to change this field?", function(result)

The callback function receives a boolean, so just check that and bug out if it's false:

bootbox.confirm("Are you sure you wish to change this field?", function(result) { 

	if ( ! result ) return;
	
	$.ajax({
		type: "POST",
		url: 'set-field-value.php',
		data: formData,
		processData: false,
		contentType: false,
		dataType: "json" 
	}).success(function(response){
		console.log(response);
	}).error(function (response) {
		
	});

});
