By now you should be able to create a web page that looks good and is functional. However other than links it lacks interactivity with viewers.

This is where forms come in.

Take this example

Car Purchase Plan

(Please not this is a fun example and not a serious form for calculating car loans)
Total Car Price ()
Deposit ()
Annual Interest Rate: %
Loan Length Years
The costs
Outstanding loan ()
No of Payments Months
Deposit ()
Monthly Cost ()

 

Like a paper form you input the data into the blank fields.

The form the sends this data elsewhere for processing by a form handler (here we use a javaScript)

You'll need to be up to speed with adding HTML with composer as this tutorial is mainly on using the HTML involved (composer has no direct support for forms)

Either begin with our intro or select you choice
