Jquery and serialize

Hi Folks

I have this question posted on teh jquery website but haven’t had any responses yet, so here I am.

I have created a jquery sortable list page where the user can move and drop elements between lists. The lists are <li>. I need help understanding how to get serialize to work.

Here is a link for a serialize script that I am trying to use. http://www.bram.us/2008/10/27/jqueryserializeanything-serialize-anything-and-not-just-forms/.

I program in classic asp and don’t understand javascript particularly well. All help much appreciated.



Basically save that plugin script as a new javascript file and include it into your HTML. Once you have done that you can simply call it by using


In this instance jQueryVar would be the values you want to serialize.

Hi SgtLegend

Well I declare myself bamboozled. I just can’t get the idea of how to use jquery straight so here I am lookinf for some more assistance. Below is my code. I want to click the button and serialize the li elements into something that I can transport to an asp page for saving, testing, etc. Any chance of a leg up?

<script type="text/javascript" src="../common/js/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../common/js/jquery.serializeanything.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {


	<li id="1">a</li>
	<li id="2">b</li>
	<li id="3">c</li>
	<li id="4">d</li>
<button id="me">Click me</button>
