Hour 19. Introduction to Scripts: Sendin... > Receiving Information from a Form

Receiving 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 and interpreting the name-value pairs that are sent to the server.

Each name-value pair contains the name of the form element entered in Dream weaver and the value that the user has entered or selected for that field. A text field has a name-value pair that contains the name of the text field and the value that was entered into the text field. A radio button group sends a name-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 drop-down menu sends the name of the object and any items the user selected.
