Chapter 11. Working with Forms > Dynamic Data and Forms

Dynamic Data and Forms

Forms are used heavily in dynamic sites for collecting information. Search pages, login pages, information update pages—all use forms to collect user input and either query or edit the data source.


If you only need the form to collect information, you don’t need your form elements to be dynamic. But if you also want the form to present information from the data source— a pop-up menu of choices based on database contents, for instance, or a personal data page that users can check and update—you need to use dynamic data to determine the contents and status of the form elements.
