    Question Java Script works in IE 8 and 9 but not in Chrome

    The following works in IE 8 and 9 but does not work in Chrome. See the error in bold.

    function runSearch() {

    var tmptarget = (document.forms(0).target);

    Error: Uncaught TypeError: Property 'forms' of object #<HTMLDocument> is not a function (repeated 2 times)

    var tmpaction = (document.forms(0).action);

    document.forms(0).action = "SSearch.aspx?SEARCHTYPE=" + encodeURI(document.getElementById("SSearchType").o ptions[document.getElementById("SSearchType").selectedInd ex].value) + "&SSEARCHVALUE=" + encodeURI(document.getElementById("SSearchValue"). value);
    document.forms(0).target = "_self";
    document.forms(0).target = tmptarget;
    document.forms(0).action = tmpaction;

    What do I need to do to update the code to work with Chrome?
