jQuery Form Validation before Ajax submit

We have already explained about form validation using same technologies. Now, the same can be done by using Ajax, In this blog post we will tell you how it can be done.

We have created an HTML form with four input fields and validation of each field is done by using combine logic of Ajax, PHP and JQuery.

$(function() {

		submitHandler: function(form) {
				url: form.action,

				success: function(response) {
	jQuery.validator.addMethod("lettersonly", function(value, element) {
	  return this.optional(element) || /^[a-z]+$/i.test(value);
	}, "Letters only please");
