    How to submit form without submit button?

    With this method, you can cause a form to be submitted when the user clicks on a regular link, which can be a text link or an image link.

    This requires two steps.

    First step, the form

    Give your form a name. This is done in the FORM tag itself:

    <form
    name="MyForm"
    method="POST"
    action="/cgi-bin/script.cgi">

    Second step, the JavaScript

    Create a link containing the submit command

    <a href="javascript:document.MyForm.submit();">
    Click to submit the form
    </a>

    Optional third step

    You can remove the submit button or, to be kind to the few non-JavaScript browsers that visit your site, put it between NOSCRIPT tags:

    <noscript>
    <input type="submit" name="Click here">
    </noscript>

    The above will display the submit button only when non-JavaScript browsers visit the page.
