Recognizing a Form
I had created a form as follow:

I had identified the form with and id: myform.setAttribute("id","formIS");

Now I would like to identify my form to apply an IF instruction: something like:

I tried all the following options and none worked. Does anyone knows why?

I also tried to debug the code and this is what I see when I put the mouse over myform --> formis#formIS

Thanks you very much

What element is this? myform=document.createElement("formIS"); I have never seen that type of HTML element.

myform=document.getElementById("formIS"); getElementById returns an object, how can you compare it to a string?
