Serialize ajax generated HTML Form

I am generating an HTML form via AJAX request and add into my existing HTML document. How do i serialize the generated form after clicking the save data link.

I have tried the code below but its not working.


$(document).on("click", '#save_data', function(event) {

// Gather all the form fields
var form_fields = $("#data_form").serialize();

//post form data via ajax

type: "POST",
url: "<?php echo site_url('agromet/save_data'); ?>",
data: form_fields,
success: function(data){

//add success function

error: function(xhr,err){



Ajax generated form:

<form id="data_form">
<input name = "state_id" id = "state_id" type="text" value = "">
<input name = "station_id" id = "station_id" type="text" value = "">
<br/><p><a id="save_data" class="btn">Save Data</a> </p>
