These solutions have nothing to do with Meteor?
Info that I need is not part of Meteor event parameter?
If so why not?
Meteor is not a magic wand. But it is one of the six cool vendors pointed out by Gartner. Gartner is the most serious assessor of trends and technologies out there. You will be much happier if you appreciate what you already have and make full use of it. Regardless of the fact, your problem is irrelevant to Meteor and is already provided with a solution that is applicable to your meteor app.
These examples are in jQuery which I don’t know.
You should take a couple of hours of break from your work and read/watch a jquery tutorial. It is extremely easy to learn and very powerful. It will save you many hours of effort with dom handling.
Once inside event handler I also need access to all the form fields.
Meteor docs for event maps is very easy to follow and has some examples. Template.find is your friend. So is jquery.
Can I get info on generated HTTP request?
There is no HTTP request. Meteor does not work in a request/response manner. It is explained at the very beginning of the docs. Furthermore, you are already stopping any http request yourself by doing
event.preventDefault() which you should.
I’ll also take my chances here and suggest you to be more involved with and appreciative of what you’ve got (meteor) and who you deal with (people who help you without waiting something in return). If you have actually read meteor docs and the link that sashko has shared with you, you would have solved your problem by now. But I sincerely hope that this answer puts you on the right track.
