    A couple questions first.

    1. Is the form located where a normal module form is (e.g. fuel/my_module/edit/1)?
    2. If so, what are you using to trigger the save for this AJAX form?

    Hi, yes it is located normal module like user list.
    for instance, in create user, when I create new user and save it (and redirect to edit mode)
    I wana show a sub form under user form to add some Data for user created.
    user table has one to many relation with data table.
    I just planing to find best solution to do that.

    sorry for my bad english

    Is this data associated with the user simply just "meta" data that needs to get saved in a related "meta_user" type table?

    No, I mean each user has some classes in school and I want to add user classes under user edit form (ajax form).
    on_after_save() doesnt render html data into user form.
    I added some line of code to fuel/views/_layout/admin_main.php for create extra html form on my condition:
    $this->load->module_view(FUEL_FOLDER, '_blocks/extra_form', $out);

    Is this right way?
    it is work for me but I got some error like:
    core\Loader.php(332) : eval()'d code on line 2

    You could try using the repeatable field and use the on_after_save model hook to save that information to the associated table:

    This field type creates a $_POST array variable like so $_POST['user_classes'][0]['class_id']. You can then target this data in your on_after_save hook in your model.
