Fill-Out Form Example #1
This is a very simple fill-out form example.
Things you may want to note:
Forward to example 2.
- Characters like "&", "%", and "$" in the text typed into the
text entry field are automatically escaped (into hex form: a
percent sign followed by a two-digit hex value corresponding to
the ASCII value of the character) when the query is constructed.
For example, the string "&%$" becomes "%26%25%24".
- By default, an
INPUT tag corresponds to a text entry
TYPE attribute lets you change this --
the "submit" type indicates a special pushbutton that causes the
query to be submitted when it's pushed. Other types are
demonstrated in the other examples.
- Because this fill-out form contains only a single text entry
field, the query can be submitted by pressing return in the text
entry field (as well as by pressing the "Submit Query" button).
