      public Elements elements()
      Get the list of form control elements associated with this form.

      Overrides:
      removeChild in class Node
    • submit

      public Connection submit()
      Prepare to submit this form. A Connection object is created with the request set up from the form values. This Connection will inherit the settings and the cookies (etc) of the connection/session used to request this Document (if any), as available in Document.connection()

      You can then set up other options (like user-agent, timeout, cookies), then execute it.

      Returns:
      a connection prepared from the values of this form, in the same session as the one used to request it
      Throws:
      IllegalArgumentException - if the form's absolute action URL cannot be determined. Make sure you pass the document's base URI when parsing.
    • formData

      public List<Connection.KeyVal> formData()
      Get the data that this form submits. The returned list is a copy of the data, and changes to the contents of the list will not be reflected in the DOM.
      Returns:
      a list of key vals
    • clone

      public FormElement clone()
      Description copied from class: Node
      Create a stand-alone, deep copy of this node, and all of its children. The cloned node will have no siblings or parent node. As a stand-alone object, any changes made to the clone or any of its children will not impact the original node.

      The cloned node may be adopted into another Document or node structure using Element.appendChild(Node).

      clone in class Element
      Returns:
      a stand-alone cloned node, including clones of any children
