submit within onchange not working correctly in Firefox

P: n/a
Hello,
I have a strange situation happening on the code below. When I first
load the page, as I change any of the three combo boxes I have created,
the onchange event is fired and the form should be submitted, but it
isn't for some weird reason. However, after I press the ok button, it
submits the form, and then the combo boxes start working normally. In
IE, everything works fine.
I appreciate any help. Thank you.

No, it's not weird at all. You're using an IE shortcut that Firefox and other
browsers don't support. The correct way to refer to your form is:

document.frmlateral.submit();

That'll do the job, more formally:

document.forms['frmlateral'].submit();
is perhaps considered the 'correct' way. Another is:

document.forms.frmlateral.submit();

I have to ask a question I have asked in the past:

Is there a known browser where document.forms['frmlateral']submit()
submits the form but document.frmlateral.submit() doesn't?

The first assumes the named form is a property of the document object,
the second one doesn't. So I guess the real question is if there is a
known browser that doesn't make named forms a property of the document
object.

I don't know.

I just figured it was worth mentioning the various ways, since often
(well, occasionally) a question is asked about how to access a form or
form control where a string has been used for the name that can't be
successfully used with dot notation, hence square brackets are
required - e.g. name="form[6]".

Perhaps I should have included that tidbit, or at least a reference to
the appropriate FAQ section:

<URL:http://www.jibbering.com/faq/#FAQ4_36>


The first assumes the named form is a property of the document object,

object.


The answer is if the name can't be used with dot notation then square
brackets are required.

Lee,
I worked perfectly. That's why I hate Microsoft products.... they are
made for lazy programmers!
Thank you very much!
