I would like to create a custom form with a textfield in which I input some data and it gets saved in the variable table.

The form should only contain the Add, Remove, and Add more button to add additional textfields.

When the textfield is empty, there should be an Add button; when the textfield is not empty, there should be a Remove button.
Clicking on the Add more button should create an empty textfield with an Add button.

All this need to happen without page reload.

I was able to add the Add, Remove, Add more, and Submit buttons. I looked into the available resources and example modules, but I can't find helpful resources.

Can anyone help me to modify the code so that the Submit button can be removed?

function mymodule_menu() {
    $items = array();
    $items['admin/mymodule'] = array(
        'title' => t('Example form'),
        'type' => MENU_CALLBACK,
        'page callback' => 'drupal_get_form',
        'page arguments' => array('mymodule_ajax_example_add_more'),
        'access callback' => TRUE,
    );

    return $items;
}

function mymodule_ajax_example_add_more($form, &$form_state) {
  $mymodule_ajax_events = variable_get('mymodule_ajax_example_content', array());
  $mymodule_ajax_events_count = count($mymodule_ajax_events);
  if ($mymodule_ajax_events_count == 0) {
    $mymodule_ajax_events_count = 1;
  }

  $form = array();
  $form['#tree'] = TRUE;
  $form['mymodule_ajax_events'] = [
    '#type' => 'container',
    '#weight' => 80,
    '#tree' => TRUE,
    // Set up the wrapper so that AJAX will be able to replace the fieldset.
    '#prefix' => '<div id="js-ajax-elements-wrapper">',
    '#suffix' => '</div>',
  ];
  $form_state['field_deltas'] = isset($form_state['field_deltas']) ? $form_state['field_deltas'] : range(0, $mymodule_ajax_events_count-1);

  $field_count = $form_state['field_deltas'];
  foreach ($field_count as $delta) {
    $form['mymodule_ajax_events'][$delta] = [
      '#type' => 'container',
      '#attributes' => [
        'class' => ['container-inline'],
      ],
      '#tree' => TRUE,
    ];

    $form['mymodule_ajax_events'][$delta]['event_url'] = [
      '#type' => 'textfield',
      '#title' => t('Event URL' . ($delta + 1)),
      '#size' => 40,
      '#default_value' => (isset($mymodule_ajax_events[$delta])) ? $mymodule_ajax_events[$delta] : '',
    ];

    $form['mymodule_ajax_events'][$delta]['remove_event_url'] = array(
      '#type' => 'submit',
      '#value' => t('Remove'),
      '#submit' => ['mymodule_ajax_example_add_more_remove'],

      '#attributes' => [
        'class' => ['button-small'],
      ],
      '#name' => 'remove_event_url_' . $delta,
    );
  }

  $form['mymodule_ajax_events']['add_event_url'] = array(

    Hey student, welcome to the club! 😊 Saw you tagging some questions with version tags lately. Please note: Version tags should be used for questions that apply to a version only, not to merely say what version a site is using. as this otherwise would cause lots of duplicate questions where just the version tag differs. There also already was lots of discussion on Meta about version tag usage in the past. Maybe have a glimpse at them and chime in if you disagree. Keep up the work, see you 🙌 – leymannx Oct 17 '20 at 19:45

If you want to omit the submit button altogether, you need to move the logic of the validate and submit to the ajax callbacks.

First, remove the submit button:

$form['submit'] = [
  '#type' => 'submit',
  '#value' => t('Submit'),
  '#weight' => 100,
];

Now you can take the logic from mymodule_ajax_example_add_more_validate and from mymodule_ajax_example_add_more_submit to the various ajax callbacks.

Each time the user interacts with the ajax buttons, you must validate the data and if all goes well, rewrite the variable to the database, because as far as we concern, this was the last interaction the user has with this form.
