Hour 16. Send and React to Form Data > Receive Information from a Form

Receive Information from a Form

The standard way to process a form is to have an application on the server that parses the data and performs an action on it. Parsing data is the act of dividing up and interpreting the name and value pairs that are sent to the server.

Each name and value pair contains the name of the form element, entered in Dreamweaver, and the value that the user has entered or selected for that field. A text field will have a name and value pair that contains the name of the text field and the value that was entered into the text field. A radio button group will send a name and value pair with the name of the radio button group and the value of the button that was selected when the user submitted the form. A list or a pop-up menu will send the name of the object and which item or items the user selected.
