The HTMLFormElement.submit() method submits the form. This method does something similar to activating a submit button of the form.

When invoking this method directly, no submit event is raised (in particular, the form's onsubmit event handler is not run),  and constraint validation is not triggered either.

If a form control (such as a submit button) has a name or id of submit it will mask the form's submit method.
