Submitting A HTML Form Using JavaScript

In order to submit a form using an event you need to run a click event on any submit button in the form. Take the following form.

<form method="post" onsubmit="alert('Form submitted!'); return false;">
    <input type="text" name="testvalue" value="" />
    <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>

To run a submit event using JavaScript we just find the submit button via the id and run click() against it.

document.getElementById('submit').click();

That's it!
