Chapter 14. Working with Forms > Enabling Users to Send Data with Buttons

Enabling Users to Send Data with Buttons

When users have finished filling out your form, they need to submit the information to you. Usually, they do it by pressing a button labeled Submit, Send or something similar. Clicking a submit button sends the user information to the form handler that has been associated with the form, so that you can receive the data and make use of it. Clicking Reset tells the user’s browser to reset the buttons to their original values. Your job is to make the buttons that appear on your form clearly visible and easily identifiable.

Adding a Push Button So Users Can Submit Data

A push button is a button labeled Submit, Reset, or another designation of your choice that the person who fills out a form clicks to perform actions. To create a push button, position the cursor in the form where you want the button to appear, and choose Push Button from the Form submenu of the Insert menu.
