Chapter 8. Forms > 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 doesn’t know exactly what information a particular visitor must enter.

If I’m registering a product online (Figure 8.16), I may be registering it for my own use (Figure 8.17) or for business (Figure 8.18). These two options may require different forms. The common solutions to this problem are to either 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.
