USA2017 :: "Lesson 12." - Forms: basics, tag <form>.

I searched all day along and finally found out all I need on USA2017.
/From the "Feedback collection on USA2017.com", USA2017.com./

HTML tutorial on USA 2017 Forms: basics, tag <form>. Lesson 12. When a website visitor input information in fields of a form and clicks "Submit" button this information go to a server to a form-handler. In our sample form-handler is server script formdata.php. Studying server scripts is out of the HTML tutorial. But in this case HTML comes very close to server part of coding so we will get a little touch of PHP programming. Please note: PHP is server language.

Forms: basics, tag <form>.

When a website visitor input information in fields of a form and clicks "Submit" button this information go to a server to a form-handler.
Contacts Form on file *.html
When a website visitor input information in fields of a form and clicks "Submit" button this information go to a server to a form-handler.

In our sample form-handler is server script formdata.php.

There are many different methods to set up server script formdata.php. We can make script to save information into DB or/and into special text files. Also we can to send input information to email of website owner.

To set up a form we must use element <form></form>, with following attributes:
  1. action="formdata.php" - the form-handler is specified in the form's action attribute, in our case server script formdata.php.
  2. method="POST" - The method attribute specifies the HTTP method: GET(default) or POST to be used when submitting the forms. Use GET if the form submission is passive (like a search engine query), and without sensitive information. When you use GET, the form data will be visible in the page address. You should use POST if the form is updating data, or includes sensitive information (password). POST offers better security because the submitted data is not visible in the page address.
  3. name="form1" - to be submitted correctly, each input field must have a name attribute. Also a form must have a name attribute to avoid mixture with other forms on the current webpage.


Codes to set into the test page:
<form action="formdata_not_ready!.php" method="POST" name="form1">
<div style="width:420px;">
<img src="images/roosevelt.jpg" width="60" height="60" class="" style="width:60px; height:60px; float:right;" alt="Franklin D. Roosevelt, president of USA in 1935." title="Franklin D. Roosevelt, president of USA in 1935." />
<p><label>Name: <input type="text" name="name1" size="32" maxlength="32" value="Franklin D. Roosevelt" /></label></p>
<p><label>eMail: <input type="text" name="email1" size="32" maxlength="32" value="Roosevelt@usa2017.com" /></label></p>
</div>
<p>
<label for="text">Message:</label><br />
<textarea name="text" id="text" cols="64" rows="8">

Welcome to America!
I thinks you're the best journalists over the world.

Good Luck!
