Displaying Form Value Using PHP

One of the functionality that the website can offer is the submission of the forms, where we can get information on the site users if they fills up that form. But, you cannot simply display all the value of the form submitted by the users only using the HTML code. But, there are many ways to display or store the form value, one of which is by using the PHP programming language. Here, we have provided a simple form code using HTML and displaying the value of that form code using the PHP programming language. For this, first you have to create a form file, named as form.php and paste the provided code below in that file:

Now, after this, you must again create a file named as submit.php, since, the form calls the submit.php file, as it is stated in form action role, which need to be in the same place or folder as in form.php file, and the code for this file is as below:

For the easiness in understanding the code above, we have added the PHP comments in it, so that you could understand the above code properly. Now, in order to test the provided code above, we have provided screenshot of this simple form, which is below:
