Chapter 25. Controls > Creating Contextual Forms

Creating Contextual Forms

Forms are used to enter information on a Web page. This information is sent back to the Web server for a multitude of purposes. Often, however, the form's creator does not know exactly what information a particular visitor must enter.

If I am registering a product (Figure 25.9), I may be registering it for my own use (Figure 25.10) or for business (Figure 25.11). Both options may require different forms. The traditional solutions to this problem are to put both forms on a common page and tell the visitor to fill out the appropriate one, or to use a different page for each form. With DHTML, you can fit both forms on a common page and simply have one or the other appear, depending on the visitor's input.
