You can create a web form visually in Dreamweaver by inserting form elements into a page, but that's only part of the job. The other, more complex part is developing a mechanism to handle the data your visitors submit with the form. The data is sometimes saved in a customer database, for example. Typically, web application technology such as PHP or Adobe ColdFusion handles the form data.
This article describes how to create a simple web form. Developing a mechanism to handle submitted form data is beyond the scope of the article. For detailed instructions on building forms and a mechanism to handle submitted data with PHP, see this tutorial series on Adobe Developer Center.
Insert form objects. Place the insertion point where you want the form object to appear in the form. Then select the object in the Insert > Form menu, or in the Forms category of the Insert bar. Place form objects within the form’s dotted red outline on the page. For more information on the form objects, see Form objects in Dreamweaver Help.
Adjust the layout of the form. Use line breaks, paragraph breaks, preformatted text, or tables to format your forms. You cannot insert a form in another form, but you can include more than one form in a page. When designing forms, remember to label the form objects with descriptive text to let users know what they’re responding to. For example, “Type your name” to request name information. Use tables to provide structure for form objects and labels. Make sure that all the table tags are included between the form tags.
