  • The form must have a name in order for you to be able to submit it. A form name looks like:

    FORM NAME="blahblah" METHOD="POST" ACTION="blah.htm"

    To submit a form, you would use the syntax formname.submit(). In this case, the code would look like:

    blahblah.sumbit()

    I believe that this asks the user if they want to submit, so you can't just submit a form without the user knowing :).

    To modify the properties of a button, you must have a button with a name inside a form with a name. Ie:

    FORM NAME="blahblah" METHOD="POST" ACTION="blah.htm"
    BUTTON NAME="blah1"
    SUBMIT NAME="blah2"
    /FORM

    Then, use the boolean property "enabled" to set whether or not the button is enabled (true = enabled, false = disabled). Use the syntax formname.buttonname.enabled = boolean_value. For example:

    blahblah.blah1.enabled = false
    blahblah.blah2.enabled = true

    Hope this helps,
