Using Data Collection Tags <select> and <input/>

Preferences - Do not show ads

Another way to set a value to a variable is to make use of data collection tags <select> and <input/>. Both <select> and <input> contain the name attribute, which specifies the name of the variable you want to assign a value to.

The following WML example shows how to assign a value to a variable using the <select> tag:


<select name="selection_list">
  <option value="tutorial_A">WML Tutorial A</option>
  <option value="tutorial_B">WML Tutorial B</option>
  <option value="tutorial_C">WML Tutorial C</option>
</select>


In the above WML example, the variable associated to the selection list is named as selection_list. If a user selects the first option (i.e. WML Tutorial A), the value attribute value of the first option (i.e. tutorial_A) will be assigned to the selection_list variable.

The following WML example shows how to assign a value to a variable using the <input/> tag:


<input name="myName"/>


The variable associated to the above input field is named as myName. If a user types the word Jack in the input field, the myName variable will contain the value Jack.
