Submitting a file (without page refresh) using AJAX

Posted 30 June 2011 - 08:45 PM

So I'm at a stand-still at the moment, I have this message system up and running properly (when I use the regular submit) but I do not know how I submit a file using AJAX. Does anyone know how this can be accomplished?

<form name="messageme" enctype="multipart/form-date"  method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="to" id="to" value="<?php echo $id ?>">
<input type="text" id="messagetitle" name="messagetitle" value="Title" onblur="if(this.value.length == 0) this.value='Title';" onfocus="if(this.value == 'Title') this.value='';">
<textarea id="messagepost" name="messagepost" onblur="if(this.value.length == 0) this.value='Message...';" onfocus="if(this.value == 'Message...') this.value='';">Message...</textarea>
<div class="file-upload" id="mupload">
<label for="file-upload">Upload</label>
<input id="file-upload" type="file" class="file" name="file" onchange="checkext()" />
<input type="text" id="mlink" value="Add a link..." onblur="if(this.value.length == 0) this.value='Add a link...';" onfocus="if(this.value == 'Add a link...') this.value='';">
<div id="mfilestatus"></div><div id="sendbutton" class="button">Send</div>

//process form
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
$('#sendbutton').click(function() {
var to = $('#to').val();
var messagetitle = $('#messagetitle').val();
var messagepost = $('#messagepost').val();
var dataString = 'to='+ to + '&messagetitle='+ messagetitle + '&messagepost=' +messagepost;
type: 'POST',
url: 'http://localhost:8888/projo/execs/message.php',
data: dataString,

Yes you can do this. I found the jQuery Form Plugin very useful in this regard. You simply build the form as usual and use the .ajaxSubmit() method instead of the default action.

Here is a post about it from not too long ago where a demonstration was done.

Hope this helps!
