Chapter 8. Forms > Creating Contextual Form Data

Creating Contextual Form Data

Forms are often cluttered or long, or they stretch over multiple pages. This is because if you don’t know exactly what information the visitor is interested in, the answers to one question may change the options for another. One way to cut down on the clutter in forms is with context-sensitive form data that will change as the visitor answers questions.

In this example, we’ll set up two selection lists with search criteria. The first list allows visitors to select the type of medium they are searching for (Figure 8.19). Depending on which option they choose, the second dropdown will present a different list of options to further refine the search (Figures 8.20, 8.21, and 8.22).
