    I am very confused now!

    I have 2 forms that run on this one page... one is hidden at all times.

    Lets call them form1 and form2.

    When i use form2, it performs perfectly. However, if i then switch over to form1 and click submit, it acts as though the function (which always returns a false value) is not run, and it tries to go on (or refresh page if no target).

    After the page refreshes i can use form1 and it works perfectly. If i then switch to form2, form2 works fine without having to refresh!

    Both forms work fine alone, and the js has no errors in it. The page validates, and i see no errors in the code (though i could miss them :().

    Form1 comes first in the page, and then form2. As i stated, one is always set as hidden, and this is toggled. Form2 is the form that is visible when the page loads. If i switch to form1 before using form2, form1 works perfectly.

    Is there some program with my design? Some reason the forms conflict? :confused:

    Edit - I also tried switching the order of the forms in the html, and i get the exact same error. I toggled the visibility too, and same error once again. This seems to indicate that there is a problem in the html, but there is none. :confused:

    Please provide a sample of this. Your post is very confusing.

    Post the html.
