Part: V Collecting User Data with Forms > Creating a Form and Using a Form to C...

Hour 19. Creating a Form and Using a Form to Collect Data

In this hour, you will create a form to collect user input. Dreamweaver gives you easy access to a number of different form elements, including text boxes, radio buttons, check boxes, lists, drop-down menus, and buttons to capture user choices. You'll cover how to submit form data in Hour 20, “Sending and Reacting to Form Data.”

With forms, you can collect information, such as comments or orders, and interact with your users. In your form, you can ask for your user's name and e-mail address, have them sign a guestbook, or provide feedback on your Web site. You can send this information back to the Web server if you'd like. Dreamweaver enables you to validate information so that you know it's in the correct format.

In this hour, you will learn

  • How to insert a form into a Web page

  • How to add text fields, radio buttons, and check boxes

  • How to add a list or a drop-down of form choices

  • How to insert different types of buttons

  • How to create and edit a jump menu
