Remote validation data as function #237

The jQuery ajax does not accept functions as data, it makes sence $.ajax is creared and used at the same time.

The remote validation calls is set once and called a few times.

I use a remote validation for multiple keys on the database so i serialize the all form and passes is on the data param.

But it does not work since if i put the data: $('form:first').serializeArray() it gets only the initial value of the form.

If i put data: function () {$('form:first').serializeArray();} it does nothhing cause $.ajax doesn`t accept functions as data.

i was thinking inchange the remote: function to check the params and parce the if it is a function

if (jQuery.isFunction(
{ =;

But i don`t know if it will change the original param, becouse it must retain the function for next calls

You could use beforeSend as the callback.


Based on other bugs it was decided that using the built-in jQuery Ajax features is preferred vs adding custom features like this. I am going to close this since you can use beforeSend to modify the data before it's sent as @jzaefferer mentions.
