Validating a form in dreamweaver
There are two ways to accomplish form validation, client-side and server-side.
Client-side form validation inserts the validation script into the web page, therefore required no action on the host server to validate the input.
This calls for some details on the form to become mandatory to fill in.
for example, a form that is used to subscribe visitors to regular newsletters via email will be of no use if the user does not enter their email address.
The advantage is that you can add those validations right from Dream Weaver. With Spry validation widgets, you can verify the input in a text field, a check box, a text area, a group of radio buttons and even a pull-down(drop-down) menu.
You are also able to limit the input to specific information type such as date/time, phone numbers, email addresses or even the length of input inside a text box.
