AJAX for submission

  1. I'm not sure why I assumed this plugin had this feature, and it was probably my mistake for assuming - but perhaps I just missed the options for it. Figured I'd ask.

    Is there support for non-page-reload submitting of forms? If not, do you plan on adding support for it? Or can you recommend a path to start going down on implementing this on my own using your hooks/api?

  2. Kenny,
    AJAX form submission is not currently supported. We are not sure that will make it into the core, but it would certainly make a nice add-on. If I were to implement this add-on using our hooks/API, I would do the following.
    1- Use the gform_submit_button filter to output a button that does not causes a postback, but instead calls a javascript function that will perform the AJAX call passing all the inputs in the form.
    2- Add a WP AJAX action (i.e. add_action('wp_ajax_submit_form', 'submit_form'); )
    3- In the submit_form() function, call GFFormDisplay::validate() and GFFormDisplay::handle_submission() to help you with validation and saving the data
    4- Depending on the result of validate(), display the error message or the confirmation message

    These are obviously over simplified steps, but should give you a step in the right direction. If you do decide to tackle this add-on and have some questions, I will be glad to help. You may also want to talk to Zack Katz ( as he has been writing add-ons for Gravity Forms and AJAX submission is in the list of the ones he is interested in writing

    Thanks for the support and good luck!
