Heh, hey. welcome to the forum.
you might need to be a little more specific... can you give an example of what you mean, a url to an example, or a more descriptive elaboration?

there is a button in the page
<p><input type="submit" name="button" value="button"></p>
how do i click the button using JAVESCRIPT and not by the mouse when the page is loaded?
10-27-2004, 09:09 PM
so you want this button to be activated when the page is loaded?
i know its possible... i dont offhand know how. it would use either
maybe something like
document.formname.button_name.value = "true";
formname is the name of your form
button_name is the name of the button
I dont know about the .value = true; part... someone will have to check that for me

You want a form to submit all by itself when the page containing the form is loaded? The following should work as long as you've only got one form on the page.

and if not would you just add the formname in instead of the 0?

isn't there an obj.click() ? which simulates clicking a button? although it's not speficied in any standard, I am pretty I've seen it in the JS reference for IE and Mozilla/Firefox.

Button.click() is not only not a part of any standard (as msdn would say), it's poorly supported.
Roy S. answered this properly. A button is a UI widget - it allows a user to launch script, or whatever. You're not a user (well, not in this case, anyway). Program it! :thumbsup:
