I'm having trouble using the login script to authenticate to a single page app with a javascript login. The username and password fields both have id's, but the form itself doesn't have an id. I've see, and also tried the 2.0 nightlies with the same issue. Any help would be appreciated.


The url looks like:

And the script looks like:

document.getElementById( 'user' ).value = 'jsmith';
document.getElementById( 'pass' ).value = 'Demo1234';

document.getElementById( '???' ).submit(); // <-- This line causes the error.

    I was able to work it out. The form didn't have an id, but the submit button did. So, rather than submitting the form, I used document.getElementById("ButtonID").click(); and that took care of my immediate issue.
