In FrontPage, pull down the Insert option from the menu bar
across the top of the screen. Highlight Form and you'll get a
list of available forms. The One-Line Text Box and the Scrolling Text
Box will be the most common types you'll want.
We used a One-Line Text Box for your name and email address at the
start of this tutorial. For longer paragraphs or even complete essays,
use the Scrolling Text Box.
When you click on either of these, FrontPage will put in a generic
form, which may not be exactly the size you want. Right click on the
form, and from the list of options, choose Form Field Properties.
This will give you a place to name the field, depending on what question
is being answered. For my two that I used at the beginning of this tutorial,
I used "name" and "email".
If you had a question and box like the one below, you might name the
What is your favorite color?
The idea is to name your fields with labels that will give you a clue
about which question is being answered. Remember, these submissions
will come to you in an email, with only the field name and the answer
typed in by the student.
In the Form Field Properties box, there is also a place to set
the width of your box, in number of characters. The color box above
is set at 40 characters.
