"Submit is not a function" error in JavaScript

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong with this code? I tried to submit a form with JavaScript, but an error ".submit is not a function" shown. See below for more details of the code:

<form action="product.php" method="get" name="frmProduct" id="frmProduct" enctype="multipart/form-data">

<input onclick="submitAction()" id="submit_value" type="button" name="submit_value" value="">

</form>

<script type="text/javascript">
function submitAction()
{
document.frmProduct.submit();
}
</script>


I also tried this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function submitAction()
{
document.forms["frmProduct"].submit();
}
</script>


Both show me the same error :(

Answer

submit is not a function

means that you named your submit button or some other element submit. Rename the button to btnSubmit and your call will magically work.

When you name the button submit, you override the submit() function on the form.
