How to submit a form using only a link rather than a submit button?





Magneto
Hi cgiFX,
This bit of JavaScript is as simple as it is useful. For any website developer there must have come that point when they wanted to submit a form using a link. Below is the code:

Be sure to name your form for example:

<form name="testForm" ...

Use the below code for your link to submit the form. Notice where the name of the form is used.

<a href="javascript:document.testForm.submit();">Submit Me!</a>
