What to do when you get this: “JavaScript : form.submit is not a function”

Check out this little gem I found here:


JavaScript : form.submit is not a function

I was just trying to submit an HTML form using document.formname.submit() method and was getting these error on different browser. document.formname.submit is not a function Uncaught TypeError: Property ‘submit’ of object #HTMLForm element is not a function
 Thats weird! It worked all the time. I was clueless why JavaScript would behave like this…? Yeah, that was a silly mistake. I didn’t realize that I named the submit button as ‘submit‘ and that why javascript is failing. We may do this kind of mistakes every now and then…
