Part V: Collecting User Data with Forms > Send and React to Form Data

Hour 16. Send and React to Form Data

In Hour 15, "Create a Form and Use It to Collect Data," you created a form. In this hour you'll decide what to do with the data that the user enters into your form. If you want to process the form data by placing it in a database, sending it to an email address, sending results back to the browser, or any other kind of processing you need to send the data to a script on the server.

Some of the types of information you might want to receive in a form: orders, feedback, comments, guestbook, polls, or even receive uploaded files. Creating the form and inserting form elements is usually the easy part. The difficult part is installing and configuring the scripts that will process the data.
