Part I:  Introducing ColdFusion MX  >  Form Handling Using ColdFusion ...

Chapter 4. Form Handling Using ColdFusion MX

Forms help end users interact with an application. An HTML form captures data and posts it to another template for processing. When an end user fills out and submits an HTML form, the Web server receives the data along with the name of the template that should process it. Regular HTML forms have limited input types and data-validation capabilities.

ColdFusion can extend the capabilities of regular HTML forms. It provides a set of tags that help in the validation and updating of data. The form handler contains CFML code that processes this data and sends an HTML document as output to the client. Usually, a Web browser displays a confirmation page that informs the end user that his data was processed.
