Part: I Forms > Validating Form Data

Chapter 7. Validating Form Data

DO OR DIE

  • This topic is about how to access form data. For example, how do you see the number of list items chosen, what date the user likes, or which checkbox or radio button is chosen?

  • Parsing the content of text fields also happens here—that is, parsing strings to find phone numbers, email addresses, and so on.

One of the easiest ways to keep track of your form elements is to put all of your form components and such into an empty movie clip container called form. Try it; it's easy. It'll help you keep everything together in a nice, neat package, and that usually pays off in the computer world.
