Here's a quick review of the topics covered today: the first example demonstrated the capabilities of the package to generate hierarchical drop downs in Web forms along with the "date" and "advcheckbox" custom controls. The next example showed you how to incorporate auto-complete text-boxes along with hyperlinks and images. The next two examples demonstrated how you can customize the appearance of a Web form using the built-in renderer or an external template engine such as "Smarty." In the last example, I have used the 'file' control to demonstrate how to upload files using the HTML_QuickForm package.
Note: All examples in this article have been tested on Linux/i586 with Apache 1.3.12, MySQL 3.23 and PHP 4.1.2. Examples are illustrative only, and are not meant for a production environment. YMMV!
