PHP Form Introduction

PHP Form Introduction

PHP Form Introduction Getting User Information Text Input

Handling User Input In this example we will have two files. For simplicity sake the first one will be an HTML file known as a form (it will have no

PHP code). The second file will be a PHP file that has variables that get their values from data entered by the user on the first file.

Make an HTML file like that below. The code behind so far

Add the

tag with name, action and method attributes

Another approach: Insert/Form/Form Supply action, method and name attributes

Any input element should be between the

tags, so I moved the close form tag to the bottom of the page.

Highlight both cells in the seconds row and then go to Modify/Table/Merge cells Enter Text in the table cells

Go to Insert/Form/Text Field Supply an id and a tab index. (The label is for associated

text, but we placed that in another table cell.) The tab index will allow the user to click the tab button to

progress through the form without using a mouse. Result (with size attribute) in code and

design Note the name and id attributes are both set to txtFirstName. JavaScript usually uses id and PHP

uses name. Add another input text field, then place the cursor after the table but inside the form and go to Insert/Form/Button

Enter value for the type, name and value

Submit code in Code and Design Adding some style to the button

Starting the PHP code that handles the form data This code takes the data associated with the form and its

post method and assigns the values to the PHP variables $firstName and $lastName. Remember PHP variables start with a dollar sign.

Code to display users information This code uses the concatenation operator,

which in PHP is a period. Form and Form handler
