I feel like such an idiot...I've worked on what I think is a simple problem for days and am getting nowhere...I would appreciate your help:

I have an html table that displays the contents of a mysql table. Each row has a form with a unique id (form1, form2...) and in each form is the RecordID and a field called "Keep" which is represented by a checkbox. When the user hits the checkbox an updater function is called to update the databse.

Right now the parameters from the form are generated via the prototype serialize method (e.g. $('form1').serialize())

The problem is that each form has a different ID, so this code only works for the first form.

How do I get tell the updater which form to serialize when there are more than one form being dynamically generated?

Is there another way?

Something like this?

function f(obj) {
$(obj).serialize();
...
}
