How To Submit Form Data To A Form Backend

To submit form data to a backend service like FabForm.io, you typically need to specify the action attribute of the HTML form to point to the backend service’s endpoint. Additionally, you might need to configure the method attribute to specify the HTTP method for submitting the form data (usually POST).

Here’s a basic example of how to submit form data to FabForm.io:

  1. Create an HTML form with the necessary input fields:
<form action="https://fabform.io/your-form-endpoint" method="post">
    <label for="name">Name:</label>
    <input type="text" id="name" name="name" required>

    <label for="email">Email:</label>
    <input type="email" id="email" name="email" required>

    <label for="message">Message:</label>
    <textarea id="message" name="message" rows="4" required></textarea>

    <button type="submit">Submit</button>

In this example:

  • Replace "https://fabform.io/your-form-endpoint" with the actual endpoint provided by FabForm.io.
  • Input fields like <input> and <textarea> have name attributes that correspond to the fields expected by the backend service.
  1. When the form is submitted, the data will be sent to FabForm.io’s endpoint specified in the action attribute.

  2. FabForm.io will handle the form submission, process the data, and store it or perform any other configured actions.

  3. Optionally, you can handle the response from FabForm.io (if any) using JavaScript, or you can redirect the user to another page upon successful submission.

Please ensure to refer to FabForm.io’s documentation or contact their support for specific instructions on integrating their service with your HTML forms, as they may provide additional configuration options or require specific settings for form submission.
