Hi Experts,

May I ask how to submit a page without clicking a button or whatsoever...   just time controlled if possible...

A sample code would be best...


Thanks in advanced experts...!    =)

just use some javascript with the setTimeout function, for example, the following will cause the form to be submitted 3 seconds after the page has fully loaded (this is setup in the initUi() method which is called by the document.onload handler). :


--------------------------------------
<html>
<head>

<script type="text/javascript">

function doSubmit()
{
   alert("submitting form");
   document.forms[0].submit();
}

function initUi()
{
   setTimeout("doSubmit();", 3000);
}

</script>
</head>

<body onload="initUi()">
   <form action="/actions/doSomething">

      <input type="text" value="some value"/>
   </form>
</body>

</html>

The short answer...You cant.

Here are some options though..
   -You could set the page to refresh to a new URL after N seconds
   -You could setup an event handler on mousemove, keydown, etc.  and implement a timer there
    eg.  
     var pageStart=new Date()
     function onMouseMove()
     {
        var now=new Date();
        var delta=now.getTime()-pageStart.getTime()
        if (delta>60000)
           form.submit();
     }
