Are you sick of manually making binding after binding for each element on a form? Are you tired of wasting your life in a never-ending sea of bindings?
Then have we got a product for you! Hidden within Free Tools is a little, unknown beauty called Form Data that will make your life wonderful again.
Form Data takes all form elements on a selected page ( that you select within Form Data ), and converts them automatically into bindings for you to enjoy later.
In this tutorial, we're going to cover making a basic contact form with the Form Builder tool within Data Bridge, and then using Form Data to turn all the form elements into bindings automatically so you don't have to do them by hand.
We're going to use the scrumptious CSS Form Builder tool found within our primo extension called Data Bridge. If you don't have Data Bridge; why not? I'll wait here while you go buy it. Or you could always make yourself a custom form.
Now you have your beautiful lil' form, we're going to need to bust out some Form Data.
Now we need to set up our Form Data instance
You'll notice bindings with all the names of the form elements on the form.php page have been created. let's go ahead and show some of the data on the results.php page so you can see it working
This is going to show the name and email people enter into the form.
Well done! It was a quick and simple little tutorial, and you handled it like a champ.
The end. How was that fairy tale ending? The hero won the day, the bindings were made easily, and no one got hurt. This should probably get animated into a children's movie.
Now you're ready to take Form Data and add it to your own sites. Go ahead, save yourself from loads of extra work. You deserve it
