Adding Data

As noted in Chapter 10, the primary method of collecting information over the Internet is the HTML form. Its basic elements—text boxes, radio buttons, pop-up menus, and so on—can collect a wide assortment of data. But to put this information into a database, you need to either write your own program or simply use Dreamweaver’s built-in tools. With its Record Insertion Form wizard and Insert Record server behavior, Dreamweaver makes this a simple process.

Warning

You might not want just anyone adding, editing, or deleting database information. To control access to these types of pages—or any page, for that matter—use Dreamweaver’s User Authentication server behaviors, as discussed in Section 24.1.
