    Default Javascript, How do I get the form name?

    What is the best method to determine a form name? I am trying to perform an
    action depending on the form name.

    I have tried if doent.form.id = 'theformname' do this; Always returns true
    for some reason

    also try

    doent.getElementByTagName("form"); this also returns true all the time

    Any recommendations are a link how to retrieve the Form Name.

    OR

    if(doent.forms[0].id == 'theformname'){ do this}
     

    doent.getElementsByTagName("FORM")[0]
    ^

    Note the "s" after getElement


    But, what are you trying to do?
