Step 5. Using Forms with ColdFusion MX > Example 5.1: A Simple Search Form

Example 5.1: A Simple Search Form

We can mix ColdFusion in with our normal HTML forms. In this example, we are going to use a ColdFusion query to get a list of items from the database, and then we’ll use those items to dynamically populate a <SELECT> menu on our form. This is very handy for long lists such as those used to select a state or a country.

We are also going to build the beginnings of a search form to help users find employee information in our Staff.mdb database.
