Joe – yes, you’re right. You’d need to hook the form up in the usual way. For my own testing I actually passed an extra parameter with the Ajax call to indicate that it was Ajax – then used the same page (in two different modes) to give the results to both Ajax and a regular form submission.

Philippe Jadin – this is just a really basic example to help readers get their feet wet with Ajax. Of course there are other ways of doing something as simple as this. It’s when you get into the real-world use cases for Ajax that it becomes clear how much more flexible it is than a simple iframe.
