Form basics

Components of a Pieform form

Each form needs to contain:

  • name - And that name must be valid (validity test: could you give a PHP function the name?)

Each form can contain:

  • method - Can be empty or 'post' as each form will pass the session key and we can't do that via 'get'
  • action - Can be empty (defaults to self) or page url
  • elements - An array of form elements to display (see Elements)
