The form is a great place to make sure you have a door open for your visitors. Forms need a proper structure; it should be functional and should look creative in order to attract visitors. Sign up forms help to bridge a gap between the user and the owner. These forms should always be user-friendly and easy to understand.
AJAX is a combination of more than one technology. It uses HTML and CSS. By using AJAX we can create real-time feedback to our users using server-side validation scripts. Today is have combined a list of Best Ajax Forms for you. Hopefully, you will like them and implement them in your next website. Enjoy!!
1- Brett’s Beta Contact Form
This form was inspired by Dustin Diaz’s original AJAX contact form. He has since updated his to use the Yahoo libraries and I will be updating mine to use something a little more advanced soon. I still prefer my modification of the FAT to the shaking, though. It works for Apple, but I don’t like my forms wiggling. I also like how it shows all of the fields that need to be filled but highlights the first one that has an error and requests that you fix it with an error message. There is certain modularity to the code, and the type of element that is created for the messages can be defined in a variable at the top of the code.
I have a version of this form that works entirely without DIV tags so it can be used within the standard setup for DOMTab. Anyway, to make a long story short, I’m not a programmer, I’m a designer who likes to pick apart other people’s code. I make a mess of things. Sometimes I go back and clean up my mess. If I get around to doing that, I’ll post the finished code with a long credit list. Meanwhile, for those who dare to peek, don’t judge me too harshly, I just wanted to make it work. And the PHP is pretty cool, too, it processes everything the form sends and returns the array of extra form fields (besides the basic contact fields) as name->value pairs. It even checks MX records to see if the domain on your email address is valid. See, I keep myself entertained…

11- jQuery inline form validation
When it comes to forming validation, it’s hard to have a versatile solution that works with every form. Figuring out how to display errors is not a simple task. I tried to remedy with this script. When an error needs to be displayed, the script creates a div and positions it in the top right corner of the input. This way you don’t have to worry about your HTML form structure. The rounded corner and shadow are done with CSS3 and degrade well in noncompliant browsers. There are no images needed.
