submit on date selection

I am using java script for date picker.  What I would like to happen is that when the date is selected, instead of just passing the new date back to the form, I would like for it to continue on to a new page where that date has been passed as a variable.  i

Here is the code that I am using on my asp page for the date picker.

  <tr>
    <td width="12" background="steel.gif"><font face="Tahoma" size="2"><img border="0" src="l_32.gif" width="12" height="32"></font></td>
    <td width="448" background="steel.gif" colspan="4"><font face="Tahoma" size="2">When will this start?</font>
      <FORM NAME=DATE1 ><INPUT type=text name=date1 value='<%=right("0" & Month(Date()),2) & "/" & right("0" & Day(Date()),2) & "/" & Year(Date())%>'
                      onchange="javascript:cbfloadmefirst('form1', 'date1');" size="20">
      <INPUT id=btn1 type=button value='Calendar' onclick="javascript:cbfshowcalendar('FMLFOR', 'date1', 'btn1');event.cancelBubble=true;">
   </FORM>
    </td>
    <td width="448" background="../images/2004/bg_steel.gif" colspan="4"><font face="Tahoma" size="2">
   </tr>

Use this extended function:

function cbfselectdate(objid)
{
     var tmpobj;
     var d=eval("document.all." + objid + ".value");
     var m=parent.document.frames.CalFrame.document.fx.txtmth.value;
     var y=parent.document.frames.CalFrame.document.fx.txtyrs.value;
     var objname=parent.document.frames.CalFrame.document.fx.txtobj.value;
     var frmname=parent.document.frames.CalFrame.document.fx.txtfrm.value;
     
     if (d!="")
     {
     cbfdrawcalendar(d,m,y);
     parent.document.frames.CalFrame.document.fx.txtday.value=d;
     
     tmpobj=eval("parent.document." + frmname + "." + objname);
     newdate=m+"/"+d+"/"+y;
     tmpobj.value=newdate;
     
     parent.document.all.CalFrame.style.display="none";
     parent.document[frmname].submit();  // this line added
     }
}

change the code


<INPUT id=btn1 type=button value='Calendar' onclick="javascript:cbfshowcalendar('FMLFOR', 'date1', 'btn1');event.cancelBubble=true;">

to


<INPUT id=btn1 type=button value='Calendar' onclick="javascript:cbfshowcalendar('FMLFOR', 'date1', 'btn1');event.cancelBubble=true;this.form.submit();">
