FormPanel submit() works fine in IE... but the submit() method doesn't fire a POST in FF or Chrome. So because it works in IE we know that the client/server code and parameters (i.e. action, encoding, and method) are correct.
The form is dynamically created, so I read that you need to append it to the document.body before submitting... tried this and it didn't work. And when I say the form is dynamically created, I mean the form itself and not the Elements in the form. I played with the hierarchy of components within the GUI and had no luck. Anyways here the code...
BorderLayoutContainer windowBody = new BorderLayoutContainer();
// defining center region
centerVBLC = new VBoxLayoutContainer();
labelBLD = new BoxLayoutData();
labelHBLC.add(new Label("Give Meet and Confer a Name:"), labelBLD);
