Hello all,
I have a quick question that should actually be real simple but I haven’t been able to find it online through MANY searches. I have a HTML form and a submit button. In the form I have an ‘onsubmit()’ event which does validation. How do I call a submit function after I return my onsubmit value if true do ‘thissubmit()’
I currently have a onsubmit function()
If my function returns true than I call - document.forms["formsignin"].submit(); return true;
That goes to my jQuery ‘$(myForm).on("submit", function () {}’
I want to do this in JavaScript ONLY and NOT with the $(myform).on() jQuery way.
<form id="fsignin" onsubmit="return validateit();">
<button type="submit">Sign in</button>
Function validateit() { do validation stuff if(….){document.forms["formsignin"].submit();      return true;
$(myForm).on("submit", function () {

    if (validateit()) {}

What I have tried:

I searched online MANY different documents... I found how to do it with jQuery but I want to call a submit() so I can do certain stuff if the login is VALID.

It looks like you may be creating an endless loop; as your validation script calls to submit, which calls validation, which calls submit....

You should be using something like this quasi-code:
function validateit() {
  // do validation stuff
  if validated { return true; }
  return false;
