    With the SHDocVw.InternetExplorer class you can do things like InternetExplorer.Document.Forms.FormName.Submit() and have a form submit without an actual submit button.

    How can I replicate this behavior with the Testing Framework?

    I can grab the form into an HTMLForm variable, but cannot figure out how to submit it.

    For example:

    <FORM style="POSITION: absolute; DISPLAY: none" id=frmRootDocument method=post action=controller.aspx target=appContentFrame>

    The site is not public, so that's the best I can do.

    If it is javascript/jquery related, have you tried out the various invoke event possibilities?

    Thanks for the reply, this is the route I took.  I did get the form to submit by appending a button to the form by writing a script, calling invokescript on it, and clicking the resulting button.
