Hello,

I have a common form to send an item to a shopping cart. But this form shows a Button. I want to add now a text link to a blog where the user can add the item from a text link to the shopping cart.
I remember that in the past it was possible to do this "Form Action" with Java-Script, I think "OnClick" but Iam not really sure.  So my question to the experts:
How it is possible to send the form with a text link instead of a button.

<form method="post" action="">

<input type="hidden" id="my-item-id" name="my-item-id" value="1">
<input type="hidden" id="my-item-primkey" name="my-item-primkey" value="1">
<input type="hidden" id="my-item-name" name="my-item-name" value="MyProduct">
<input type="hidden" id="my-item-price" name="my-item-price" value="799.00">
<input type="hidden" id="my-item-shipping" name="my-item-shipping" value="">
<input type="hidden" id="my-item-img" name="my-item-img" value="http://www.ifoerster.com/wp-content/plugins/wpstorecart/images/default_product_img.jpg">

oops, it should be:


if you have name on form:

<a href="javascript:document.myForm.submit()">add</a>

or

<a href="javascript:document.forms[0].submit()">add</a>

assuming it is the first form on document...
