Hey there everyone

I'm a bit new to javascript and having a bit of a problem.

I have a page users can click to upload a photo. When users click I want a modal window to pop up with a simple file upload input inside it and a submit button. I have this working except that when users click submit nothing happens. I'm using nyroModal http://nyromodal.nyrodev.com/#demos and the code I use is:

<a href="#test" class="nyroModal"><img src="/img/uploadimage.gif" alt="" /></a>
<div id="test" style="display: none; width: 600px;"> <form id="ImageUploadForm" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="images/upload" accept-charset="utf-8">
<div style="display:none;">
<input type="hidden" name="_method" value="POST" />
<div class="input file">
<label for="ImageFileName">File Name</label>
<input type="file" name="data[Image][fileName]" id="ImageFileName" />
<div class="submit"><input type="submit" value="Upload" />

If I take the code out of the div=id"test" the form appears on the normal page and submits just fine. Inside the test div tho the modal window pops up with the form inside but the submit button does nothing.

Can anyone enlighten me what I'm doing wrong?
