serialize()

Specification

Performs a manual serialization of the current Form.

Invoking this manually serializes a form regardless to its validity state. This is almost never what you want. Consider using conventional form submit, which validates the fields and exposes you the serialized object.

Definition

type Serialize = () => Object<fieldName, fieldValue>

Example

import React from 'react'
import { Form } from 'react-advanced-form'
import { Input } from 'react-advanced-form-addons'
export default class Example extends React.Component {
handleButtonClick = () => {
this.form.serialize() // { "username": "admin" }
}
render() {
return (
<div>
<Form ref={form => this.form = form}>
<Input
name="username"
value="admin" />
</Form>
<button onClick={this.handleButtonClick}>Serialize</button>
</div>
)
}
}

You can use onSerialize form prop to transform the serialized fields object.
