Chapter 9. Working with HTML Forms > An Introduction to HTML Forms

An Introduction to HTML Forms

As I've just mentioned, forms are everywhere on the web. They allow us as developers to collect and ultimately process data from our end users. Let's take eBay as an example. As a buyer, you visit eBay in an attempt to find a sweet deal on something you probably don't need. When you visit eBay, you don't verbally tell eBay to find an item; instead, you interact with a form containing form objects in the shape of a search text box and a search button (see Figure 9.1).

Figure 9.1. eBay uses forms and form objects to collect a user's search criteria.
