el should contain a complete reference to the form. No need to prefix it with document.

var el=event.srcElement.parentElement;
el.submit();

However, I must ask, what IS the srcElement here? If it's an INPUT, TEXTAREA, or SELECT, you don't need to do that. Is this in a function? How is the function called?

heres a part of the code where the el comes from:

function gotoform()
var el = event.srcElement.parentElement;
el.submit();

<select name="rating" onChange="gotoform();">
</select>

since el is the select tag, i want to submit the form where the select tag belongs.

Why not just...

<select name="rating" onChange="this.form.submit();">
</select>

???

Or if you do have to go into the gotoform() function for other reasons that arent apparent in the snippet you have posted just use :-




<select name="rating" onChange="gotoform(this)";>
</select>

functiuon gotoform(t)
{
....
....
t.form.submit();
}
