Creating Forms

Creating Forms

You can use Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 to create forms with text fields, password fields, radio buttons, checkboxes, pop-up menus, clickable buttons, and other form objects. Dreamweaver can also write code that validates the information a visitor provides. For example, you can check that an e-mail address a user enters contains an "@" symbol, or that a required text field contains a value.
