The serializeObject provides an additional method for jQuery that has the ability to serialize your form values to complex JSON objects.

How to use it:

1. Download and include the minified version of the jQuery serializeObject plugin after jQuery.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquer.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.serializeObject.min.js"></script>

2. Note that your form fields must have name attribute as these:

<input type="text" name="username">
<select name="education">
  <option value="Jr.High">Jr.High</option>
  <option value="HighSchool">HighSchool</option>
  <option value="College">College</option>
</select>
...

3. Create a container to display the serialized form data.

<pre id="result">
</pre>

4. The JavaScript to output the serialized data in the 'result' container.

$('form').submit(function() {
  $('#result').text(JSON.stringify($('form').serializeObject()));
  return false;
});
