I want to get the length of string in pixels, load it into a hidden form variable and automatically submit the form. It's not doing what I want. I'd be grateful for any insight. Thanks in advance.

<?php
if (isset($_POST['result'])) {
print($_POST['result']);
die(); // just to show it's working
}
?>

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<?php require("includes/header.php"); ?>
<script type="text/javascript">
function submitform() {
var test = document.getElementById("Test");
var width = (test.clientWidth + 1) + "px";
document.getElementById("size").innerHTML = width;
document.forms["myForm"].submit();
}
<body onload="submitform()">
<form id="myForm" action="strsize.php" method="post">
<div id="Test" style="position:absolute;white-space:nowrap">
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
</div>
<input id="size" type="visiblity:hidden" name="result" />
</form>
</div>
</body>
</html>

use .value not .innerHTML as you want to change the value of the input-field - see https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/prop_text_value.asp

Code:
<?php
if (isset($_POST['result'])) {
  print($_POST['result']);
  die(); // just to show it's working
}
?>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
  function submitform() {
    var test = document.getElementById("Test");
    var width = (test.clientWidth + 1) + "px";
    document.getElementById("size").value = width;
    document.forms["myForm"].submit();
  }
</script>
</head>

<body onLoad="submitform()">
  <div id="Test" style="position:absolute;white-space:nowrap">
    abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
  </div>
  <form id="myForm" action="strsize.php" method="post">
    <input id="size" type="hidden" name="result" />
  </form>
</body>
</html>
