How do i process serialized data with Javascript and ASP?

How do i process serialized data with Javascript and ASP?

Im not sure if this is the right forum, but here it goes.

Im using ajax code to submit serialized data to my server side webpage:

$(document).on('pageinit', '#login', function() {
$(document).on('click', '#submit', function() { // catch the form's submit event
if($('#fname').val().length > 0 && $('#pfpass').val().length > 0){
// Send data to server through the ajax call
// action is functionality we want to call and outputJSON is our data
$.ajax({url: 'logmein.asp',
data: {action : 'login', formData : $('#check-user').serialize()},
type: 'post',
async: 'true',
dataType: 'json',
//contentType: 'application/json',
beforeSend: function() {
// This callback function will trigger before data is sent
$.mobile.showPageLoadingMsg(true); // This will show ajax spinner

complete: function() {
// This callback function will trigger on data sent/received complete
$.mobile.hidePageLoadingMsg(); // This will hide ajax spinner
success: function (result) {
if(result.status=="true") {
alert('Logon successful');
} else {
alert('Logon unsuccessful!');
error: function (request,error) {
// This callback function will trigger on unsuccessful action
alert('Network error has occurred please try again!');

} else {
alert('Please fill all necessary fields');
return false; // cancel original event to prevent form submitting*/

on my server side web page I don't know how to access the form values.

If I do a Request.Form() I get: Action=login&formData=fname%3Dfoo%26pfpass%3Dbar
If I do a Request.Form('formData') I get: formData=fname%3Dfoo%26pfpass%3Dbar

I'm not sure how to access the values. I suppose it needs to be deserialzed but I can't figure out how with javascript and ASP.
Does anyone have an example of this?


RE: How do i process serialized data with Javascript and ASP?

Your string does not look serialized, merely url encoded. If you decode it you get:


This is unrelated to Ajax, as decoding it would be done at the server by ASP.

You'll likely get more specific answers in forum333: Microsoft: ASP (Active Server Pages) or forum855: Microsoft: ASP.NET
