To learn about how to deliver OpenGL type animation over the internet, Iíve been looking over the various tutorials available at
http://www.w3schools.com/cert/default.asp...actually now, http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_reference.asp and looking over nitty gritty code elements like the html for tables:
Defines a table
Defines a table header
Defines a table row
Defines a table cell
Defines a table caption
Defines groups of table columns
Defines the attribute values for one or more columns in a table
Defines a table head
Defines a table body
Defines a table footer
Pretty niftomatic, huh? Try entering username and password: The password is blobbed out, huh? Am I a pro with this stuff?
The section on forms and input is interesting. For instance, here're some text fields you can enter data into:
Now if you want to actually retrieve information. Supposedly (presumably) you do aYeah, how am I doing? Forms galore!
<form name="input" action="html_form_action.asp" method="get">,
the user types some characters in the text field, clicks the "Submit" button and input is sent to a page called "html_form_action.asp". That page will show you the received input? Hmm... Not sure I could retrieve same, but we'll see.
This example cannot be edited because our editor uses a text area for input, and your browser does not allow a text editing inside a text area.
What ho, the W3 folks strongly advocate using css (cascading style sheets) which I'm already on to, though not nearly enough, given the spotty intermittent style of this very document.
It would be nice to actually gather input this way: real multiple choice tests, etc.
Another thing to try here is the command action="html_form_action.asp" inside a form.
If you click the "Submit" button, you will send your input to a new page called html_form_action.asp.
