What’s this all about? I need to get all form data and save it in a hidden input field. I want to use it on a second form on the same page.

    $('.form-paypal').submit(function(event) {

function saveValues() {
    var fields = $(':input').serializeArray();
    jQuery.each(fields, function(i, field) {
        $('#results').append( + ':' + field.value + '|');

I also had a hidden div to collect everything:

<div id="results" style="display:none;"></div>

That’s it. Now I can submit the second form and use the details in the first form.
