I have a simple ExtJS Grid that I've tied some custom JS validation to using EXTjs..

I'd like to replace the forms submit Button w/ an HREF like below.. But I'm unsure how to get my HREF to fire the same validation events as the submit button?

<input type="submit" value="Update Selections" class="primary"/> (works)

<a href="javascript:document.forms['setSiteAccountsForm'].submit()" name="_submit">Update Selections</a> (doesn't catch the validation)

Ext.get('setSiteAccountsForm').on('submit', function(e, t) {....validation.... etc}

make sense?

Sorry new to the JS side of this

any help is appreciated -
