The Composition Screen

The message composition screen is the last piece of the puzzle—and the easiest. This is simply a form where users can enter their messages to submit back to the server. Keep track of the fields that we need to store:

  1. ParentID—This value is being passed in as the URL parameter ID. We'll need to create a hidden field that is set to this value.

  2. Subject—The subject of the message.

  3. IconURL—The filename/URL of the icon to display with the message. For the composition screen, I'm simply going to create a series of radio buttons to choose the value for the iconURL.

  4. Author—The name of the message's author.

  5. Body—Message content.

  6. Password—A password that can be used to delete the message.

  7. Hidden—Use a hidden field to store the value for the field named hidden. If you want messages to be displayed immediately after posting, set this field value to 0. Otherwise, set it to 1.
