How to Submit a Form Using jQuery

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the jQuery submit() Method

You can use the submit() method to submit an HTML form (i.e. <form>) using jQuery.

The jQuery code in the following example will submit the form on click of the button (i.e. the <button> element) which has the type attribute set to button (i.e. type="button").

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Form Submit</title>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
    $("#submitBtn").click(function(){        
        $("#myForm").submit(); // Submit the form
    });
});
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <form action="action.php" method="post" id="myForm">
        <label>First Name:</label>
        <input type="text" name="first-name">
        <button type="button" id="submitBtn">Submit Form</button>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
