Chapter 11. Gathering User Input Using Forms > Setting Rules for Entering Data

Setting Rules for Entering Data

For some form fields—text box, text area, option button, or list box—you can set rules that visitors to your Web site are required to follow to provide consistent results for gathering data. If you see a Validate button in a field's Property dialog box, you can set rules for entering data. Each Validation dialog box provides different options depending on the field.

Set a Rule for Entering Data

Click the View menu, click Page, and then open the Web page you want to use.

Double-click the form field (text box, text area, option button, or drop-down box) to which you want to set rules.

Click Validate.

Select the options you want to set rules for entering data.

  • For a drop-down box or option button, select the Data Required check box.

  • For text box or text area, click the Data Type list arrow, select the type of data you require in the text box, and then select other related options.

Click OK.

Click OK.
