I have a couple functions in a form's OnSubmit event.
<form name="frm1" method="POST" action="show.asp" onsubmit="return CheckFrm1();return DoThisToo();">
But only one get's executed. Can I put multiple functions here?

Also is there an order of events (which get's ececuted first) Left to right?

return stops execution and gives a value to onsubmit.

StevenJames,

Can't you combine them or create a third that runs those functions and returns true/false to the submit?

If not then try ...

onsubmit="return (CheckFrm1() && DoThisToo());"

I haven't tried it like that so let me know if it doesn't work.  In a quick test it worked for me. :)

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Thanks b0lsc0tt,

You gave me the idea of looking at other events, and since the user clicks on the submit button, I put the check in there, then my todostuff in the form's OnSubmit.

Works!
