PHP Programming

The Interface

Our HTML Interface will look as folows:

 suggest.html 
<html><head><title>Suggestion Box</title></head>
<body bgcolor="black" text="white">

<h2>Suggestion Box</h2>

<p>Please supply us with your details and comments
(Details marked <font color="red">*</font> are required.

<form action = "http://www.server-name.com/php-bin/suggest.php" method=POST>

<table>
<tr><td>First Name<font color="red">*</font>:</td>
<td><input name="fName" type="text" size="15"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Last Name:</td>
  <td><input name="lName" type="text" size="20"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Email Address:</td>
  <td><input name="eAddress" type="text" size="20"></td></tr>
<tr><td>Suggestions<font color="red">*</font>:</td>
  <td><textarea name="suggestion" cols="40" rows="5"></td></tr>
<tr><td> </td><td><input type="text" size="15">
<input type="submit" value="Ok"></td></tr>
</table>
</form>
</body></html>

This is plain HTML and there is nothing to explain here. The only portion worth a mention is the one in bold. This specifies the action as http://www.server-name.com/php-bin/suggest.php. This is because my server (imaginary) is www.server-name.com and my PHP script to process the HTML entries, is suggest.php, which resides in the directory php-bin.

It is also worth noting that there are two compulsory fields - the First Name and the suggestion.

Let's take a look at the script and see how it looks like...
