Chapter 11. Forms >  Creating a Form

Creating a Form

A form has three important parts: the FORM tag, which includes the URL of the CGI script that will process the form; the form elements, like fields and menus; and the submit button which sends the data to the CGI script on the server.

To create a form:

1.
Type < FORM METHOD= POST.

2.
TypeACTION="script.url"> where script.url is the location on the server of the CGI script that will run when the form is submitted (see pages 188-192).

3.
Create the form's contents, as described on pages 196-216, including a submit button (see page 206) or active image (see page 210).

4.
Type </FORM> to complete the form.
