Forms perform an essential function in modern websites, making it possible to gather information from users and validate that information. In this course, Adobe Certified Expert Candyce Mairs shows how to create forms to email user information and validate user data using various methods of form validation. These validation methods include client-side, server-side, and custom validation; CAPTCHA images; and Spry validation fields. You'll also see how to set up a PHP testing environment and preview PHP pages in Dreamweaver. Along the way you'll build your skills in areas like using admin consoles, commenting code, working with variables and includes, and much more.
This course will require some set up. What we need to do is create a PHP environment on our local machine so we can test our pages and get over our coding working correctly. Two of the most popular coding environments, MAMP if you're working on PHP in Mac's side, and ZAMP if working on PHP on the PC side. We'll be setting up these environments at the beginning of this course there are quite a few different pieces we'll be pulling in and these separate installs allow you to pull in all of those pieces in a single install. So that's the environment we will be using.
We're using PHP, because it's one of the more common web environments, it's also something that ties in very well with Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver CS5, and later, has some new features for working in PHP. That doesn't mean you have to work in PHP when you're working in Dreamweaver, but our environment, we're going to use, is PHP. It's one of the more common type environments. So let's get setting up our course environment. Installing our entire testing development center, so we can get working in our webpages.
