Hello Javascript Gurus:

I have a form that I'm trying to submit with buttons in a different frame. For the most part it works, but there are a couple instances where it doesn't. It works fine when I just need to script to display different things, but when I need to update some info, then the js doesn't seem to work. I'm wondering if this is even possible.

using onSubmit and onClick hasn't worked. The form is normally submitted by an image type input. This is the js I'm trying right now.
Code:
<form>
<INPUT TYPE="image" src="../buttons/but_aendern_r.gif" ALIGN=TOP BORDER="0" onClick="top.mainFrame.document.forms[0].submit()">
</form>
And then the script is looking for:
Code:
$form_data{'what_to_do_next.x'}
Since the page comes back blank and no data has been written to the file that is supposed to have the data written to it, I can only guess that the script is not getting that value, so it just exits. Is there a way to pass that value from a different frame? Is the problem that the form is not normally sent with a submit button?

I hope I explained this clearly.
TIA
