[thelist] Problem with a form.submit() in netscape.

Move your document.form.submit() function into a onLoad function in your
body tag.  That will allow the page to complete loading before submitting,
making Netscape happy.

Subject: [thelist] Problem with a form.submit() in netscape.

Hello evolters,

I have done this simple code:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
// write the action (e.g. "test/index.php3")
// and then
// write the value of order_id (from primary key field "private_areaID")
<form name="myform" method="post" action="<?php echo $destination .
"/index.php3"; ?>">
<input type="hidden" name="order_id" value="<?php echo $myID;?>">
<script language="javascript">
// end of script -->

// -->

That works fine with IE (it seems) but on netscape we have time to see:
and after that it works (that is the browser goes to the destination page)

So, I understand Netscape is more rigorous and would like the page to finish
downloading before posting the form.

But what choice do I have? I can't call my javascript after the ending /HTML

What do you think? is it an interesting problem or not?
