HTML Form method Attribute

The HTML form method attribute defines how to send form-data that means to be sent as URL variable or to be sent as an HTTP post transaction.


Following is the syntax −

<form method=”get | post”></form>

Here get sends the form data as URL variable and post sends the form data as an HTTP post transaction.

Let us see an example of HTML Form method Attribute−
