Submit a Form with a Button Outside the Form
How to submit a form with a submit button outside the form
You know, sometimes it's the little things that make you happy -- the super powers that you didn't know you had, when #usetheplatform comes through for you.
Submit Button Inside the Form
Most of the time, it's that familiar tale: the submit button is in the form:
<form> <input type="submit" value="Submit!" /> </form>
And when you click it, the form submits.
Submit Button Outside the Form
Add an id to the form and point to it from the submit button:
<form id="theform"> </form> <input form="theform" type="submit" value="Submit!" />
And it will STILL submit the form. Thank you, and good night.
