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

		<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();
			}
