I can’t use Xforms because with Xforms, when you click a submit for example,
the submission object will built the http request and send it to server.
Next, the browser will handle server response and show it in the page
(roundtrip). The matter with this is that I have more forms and other
information on the page and I just want to refresh the appropriate area that
contains the form that was submit.


I am thinking of using a listner on te submission and cancel the submission
onsubmit event. 

Il place, I will user a <xforms:setvalue value=”handlerequest(.)”/> that
will call a generic JavaScript function. This function have to do the same
responsibility the submission will do, but by usin an XmlHttpRequest object.
Then, this function will refresh the div that contains Xforms form with
return data.


I want to know if this solution is smart and realistic and if somebody have
deal with this in the past.

Why are you not using XFORMS for the interaction with the server? 
Or am  I missing something?

Handle XForms Submit whith XmlHttpRequest




I’m building an Ajax application witch have many modules. 
One man in my team is building an API to pilot the user interface at de
server side (PHP). 
The other developers have to write their Forms (XForms) an use the API to
show forms to the client. 
The interaction between the client (browser) and the server  (PHP) is handle
with XmlHttpRequest (or quivalent) in javascript. 
We are finding a way to handle all the onclick (onsubmit) event and pass the
HTTP request to the XmlHttpRequest who will post then to the server a smart
Can some one of you point me with a framework that do those kind of stuff?
Or any idea?
