    can I tell whether a form is being submitted

    Hi all!

    I have a form called "theForm". How can I tell if the user has submitted the form or hit the submit button??

    Is it..

    Code:
    if(document.theForm.onsubmit()){
    
    do something
    
    }else{
    
    }

    Code:
    <form action="xxxx.yyy" method="post" onsubmit="alert('call any function here'); return true;">
    If you want to validate the form, at the same time, do something like
    Code:
    <form action="xxxx.yyy" method="post" onsubmit="return validateForm(this);">
    and have validateForm return true if no errors or false for one or more errors.
    Be yourself. No one else is as qualified.

    You may do it dynamically, as well:
    Code:
    onload=function(){
    var form=document.forms['theForm'];
    form.onsubmit=function(){
    // do something
    }
    }
