Chapter 14. Working with Forms > Letting Users Fill Out Text Boxes and Areas

Letting Users Fill Out Text Boxes and Areas

The text box that enables the user to enter a single line of text (no more than a word or short phrase, depending on the size of the box) is probably the single most common data entry element used in Web page forms (although Submit or Clear buttons are virtually universal as well). They’re pretty much indispensible for enabling visitors to send you their names, addresses, and other important information. Whether you’re creating your own form from scratch, or editing an existing form, FrontPage makes it easy to create the box and control its size. First, you create a form:

1.
Open the page that you want to include a form.

2.
Position the text cursor where you want the form to appear.

3.
Choose Insert, Form, Form.

4.
Press Enter a few times to make some space above the Submit and Reset buttons so that you can enter a text box (see Figure 14-10).

Figure 14-10. First, create a form so that you can add text boxes and other dataentry elements.
