Join Candyce Mairs for an in-depth discussion in this video Form basics, part of Dynamic Dreamweaver Websites: Creating and Validating Forms.
What I want to do now, is talk about forms and the form process. …And we'll take a look at a couple of examples of forms, in order to do that. …I'm on the Video2brain website. This is their homepage. …And they have a subscribe to our newsletter link. …So if I click that. I have gone out to a form, for me to fill …out, if I want to become a subscriber to their news letter. …Now you can see this form, has a few different fields within it.…
Each one of those is known as a field, there's also a few extra check boxes …within this form. The idea is, you fill out form with your information. …You check the check boxes if you want to, and you'll click Save. …Now if I click this button right now, you can see there's some information that …pops up on the page, in other words, I have not filled out all of these required fields.…
And that message that pops up, and the script that creates that blockage, so to …speak, of the form being submitted is known as form validation. …So this is using a process called server side validation. …
