After a user has filled out a form, they are ready to submit that data. This video walks through how to allow the user do that and where to send it.
- [Instructor] So we have a decent looking form here … for our pizza ordering process, … but a big missing piece here is that … we can't order anything, right? … There is no order button to say, … okay, I want a cheese on my pizza. … I also want to have maybe some olives on my pizza. … You know even if we provide the toppings, … there's no order button here … in order to make this a reality. … So, let's go ahead and talk about … how we can do that. … Before you end the form, you can add a special type of input … that will submit the form, meaning complete it … and forward everything to some URL. … And we create that by simply making an input tag … and with this input, we give it a very particular type. … So we're going to have the type of this be equal to submit. … And again this is what turns it into a button … and takes all the data and sends it somewhere. … And the value is what text you want to appear … inside of this button. … So, here we might put some text, something like order pizza. …
