Default Manual Submit


I have an asp page which has a Submit button.
The Submit button calls a 3rd party asp page.

Now, i want to add an operation to the button, which will send an email and then will call submit to the 3rd party asp page.

How can i do that?
I guess i need to change the submit button to a normal button so to send email but then how to call the submit process by code so it will activate the form action (by "submit()") ?

1..use an event. Lets say you want to do some clientside validation:

<input type="button" name="submit" value="Add Folder" onClick="return someFunction();">

This calls a function called someFunction, so in the head of your page:

   function someFunction()
      //do you clientside stuff, then to submit:

IMO you should wrap an anchor tag around an image so the cursor changes to a hand when the user mouses over the button (or use css to style the input type=button to crate the hand onMouseover) The other downfall is the fact you can not hit the enter button to submit the form (you must click the button)

;;;how can we post data using javascript function and ordinary buttons.

2..If you dont need to run a JS function but just want to submit when the user clicks the button use:

<input type="button" name="submit" value="Add Folder" onClick="formName.submit();">
