Can VB force a javascript command on a web page? And if not, can a click event be forced on a gif if it doesn't have a name assigned to it?

I have a form on a web page that I need to populate and then submit. The gif has an onClick event that activates a javascript checkForm...the script then submits the form.

I either need to force a click event on the gif, or just activate the js script.

Thanks!

>> or just activate the js script.

Lack of questions and had too much sugar so..

There's a execScript method that allows you to either pass the actual javascript "code" to execute or just the name of a pre-existing function. Since you probably know the function name..

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    WebBrowser1.document.parentWindow.execScript "MyScript()"
End Sub
Private Sub Form_Load()
    WebBrowser1.navigate "c:\test.html"
End Sub

AmyL,

Are you looking to do this with an external VB program (i.e. a standalone Exe)  or are you looking for some vbscript you can add to the web page that'll accomplish this task?
