Home Forums JavaScript Jquery json using the module pattern? Reply To: Jquery json using the module pattern?


Just glancing, you’d need to pass jQuery in. It looks like everything else you’d need are the ids of the form elements you’re using —if so, it would probably be easiest to pass them in a single options object (it would be easy to provide defaults this way, too).

I might suggest using classnames instead of ids, but that’s up to you. It would make it more modular/resilient. But it won’t really affect how we code it, so no big deal.

Looks like we’ll need to specify the URL for the ajax call, too.


I would highly recommend getting rid of this:

    $("form").bind("keypress", function(e) {
        if (e.keyCode == 13) {
            return false;

Hitting [Enter] is supposed to cause a form to submit. It’s not a bug, it’s a well-established UX feature. Unless you have a really good reason*, you should not break the user’s experience by trying to control how their browser works.

* and I’ve never heard a “really good reason”
