I am having trouble getting a form to submit when the name attribute of the submit button is precisely "submit".
Here is the code:
<input onclick="checkForm(document.form_29) && document.form_29.submit();" value="Submit" name="submit" type="button">
The odd thing is that this will not work if and only if the name attribute is "submit". The problem is case-sensitive, so the following (and any other naming, including no name attribute) will work:
<input onclick="checkForm(document.form_29) && document.form_29.submit();" value="Submit" name="Submit" type="button">
I have been looking over the W3C specs for some mention of a reserved name, but I could not find anything. I suspect I am overlooking something really obvious here, so I'm hoping some of y'all out there can see something I can't.
Thanks for any help.
You're having issues because the
submit is overriding the
form.submit() function reference for that
form_29.submit refers to that button, rather than the DOM
