Client wants Form contents to go to a MySQL Data Base

Client wants Form contents to go to a MySQL Data Base

Hi All,

I am a noob when it comes to the WebAssist Super Suite. I created a form for a client on their Volunteer page, which sends the results to the client's email. Problem is now the client wants to form results to go to and populate a MySQL database so they can pull the data at any point. I can not for the life of me figure out how to tell this form to send the contents to a database.

The only post that I could find relevant is this one: showthread.php?t=13848
which doesn't tell me anything about how to do it and the documentation is sparse.

here is the page with the form. volunteer.php

I already created a table in MySQL but dont know what extension to use to have the form contents populate the database.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Frank

add an insert record behavior to the page.

Open the server behaviors panel, then click the plus button and select WebAssist -> Data Assist -> Insert Record -> Insert Single record.

in the insert behavior, select the database connection to use, the table you wish to have the data inserted to, then on the bindings tab, select each column, click the lightning bolt and select the corresponding form element.

Thank you Jason! As a noob, I was going to ask you to be more specific but I decided to muddle through it on my own and eventually I got it to work! This is truly excellent stuff! Cheers.
