Hi,

I have a form on a webpage that I'd like to have automatically submit after 5 minutes. What I know of javascript is pretty basic.  If someone could give me some pointers on how to get this done, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you in advance,
T

		<title>Submit form in 5 minutes</title>
 

		<script type='text/javascript' language='javascript'>

			

			function submitFromInPrefferedMinutes(minutes)

			{

				var SECONDPERMINUTE = 60;

				var MILLISECONDPERSECOND = 1000;

				

				var TotalInterval = ((minutes * SECONDPERMINUTE) *MILLISECONDPERSECOND);

				

				setTimeout("submitForm()", TotalInterval);

				

			}

			

			function submitForm()

			{

				document.frm.submit();

			}

			

			

			function init()
