    });
    function changeInnerHTML(id)
    {
        if($('#dialog_box_'+id).length)
        {
            var tmp=id.split('_');
             $.get('getDataValues.php?ref='+tmp[0],function(data,status){
                $('#dialog_box_'+id).html(data);
            });
        }
    }
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id='container'>
    

        <h1 id="form-name" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); box-shadow: none; border: none; margin: 8px 15px;">New Form</h1>
        <form method="POST" id="preview_form" novalidate="novalidate">

<script type='text/javascript' src='js/form.min.js'></script>
</body>
</html>

Here the code which will get all form field values:

 $("#hidAll").append($("#preview_form :input").map(function () {
     if ($(this).val() != 'Submit') {
         if ($(this).is('select')) {
             var aa = $(this).children('option').map(function () {
                 return $(this).val();
             }).get().join("|");
             return $(this).attr('name') + '|' + aa;
         } else if ($(this).is('input:checkbox')) {
             return $(this).attr('name').substring(0, $(this).attr('name').length - 2) + '|' + $(this).val();
         } else {
             return $(this).attr('name') + '|' + $(this).val();
         }
     }
 }).get().join(","));
 alert($("#hidAll").html());

From this I am getting the output value as follows:

textfield_1|dgdfg,
checkboxgroup_1|Option 1,
checkboxgroup_1|Option 2,
checkboxgroup_1|Option 3,
radiobutton_1|Option 1,
radiobutton_1|Option 2,
radiobutton_1|Option 3,
dropdown_1|Option 1!Option 2!Option 3

I want the out as following:

textfield_1|dgdfg,
checkboxgroup_1|Option 1!Option 2!Option 3,
radiobutton_1|Option 1!Option 2!Option 3,
dropdown_1|Option 1!Option 2!Option 3

You can use a serialize() function of JQuery:

    var datastring = $("#preview_form").serialize();
        $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            url: "your url.php",
            data: datastring,
            success: function(data) {
                 alert('Data send');
            }
        });

And read in PHP:

echo $_POST['datastring']['dialog_box_textarea_1'];
echo $_POST['datastring']['radiobutton_1'];
........

And get ***data-**** to tag HTML5 you can see this example:

<div id="texto" data-author="Ricardo Miranda" data-date="2012-06-21">
<h4>Lorem ipsum</h4>
  <p>
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, ius integre eligendi et,
    sea ut expetendis conclusionemque,
    mel at ornatus invenire. His ad moderatius definiebas omittantur,
    liber saepe albucius sea cu.
    Audire tamquam dolores vis ne, mediocrem consulatu eum ex.
    Duo te agam saepe convenire, et fugit iisque his.
 </p>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
    alert("The text is write " + $('#texto').data('author'));
});

And

<div id="texto" data-author='{"nombre":"Ricardo","apellido":"Miranda"}' data-date="2012-06-21">
   ...
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
    alert("The text is write " + $('#texto').data('author').apellido + ", " +
        ('#texto').data('author').nombre);
});
</script>
