I have one image (gif) and a form on my page. The image is outside the form region. I want to make this image a "clickable area" and issue a form submit when the user click on this image.

Is it possible?

I am using JavaScript at client, and VBScript and ASP at the server.

Sure. First, make the image a normal link as in:

<A HREF="#"><IMG SRC="myimage.gif"></A>

Now do this:

<A HREF="#" onClick="document.forms('formname').Submit()"><IMG SRC="myimage.gif"></A>

That should do it. My Javascript is a little rusty, but it's more or less that.

Yes, CoolAss, this is a nice solution. You can also improve it (if, e.g, you want fields validation) calling in the on Click event a javascript function were you validate data and then, at the end of the function, if all is OK you give the command:

document.forms('formname').Submit()

Recent browsers support also this syntax:

document.formname.Submit()

Good work!
