Link to the form: https://www.lynnamacher.com/pdf/contactForm_V1.html
This is created to be basic test for an AWS contact form test. The full form when filled out will send an email through AWS to the site owner. Instead of creating the normal test form I try to create something that would look like it would be used for a real site. I’ve found this helps those that are not technical to better relate to the project.
For this contact form I went with the idea of a new and used toy and record store. Added the basic contact form questions that are needed, name, email, phone, message area; then added a few more that would be specific to a toy/vinyl store. These are help add extra items like date pickers and check boxes.
Created it to be fully responsive, so it would show in Desktop down to mobile without side to side scrolling.
For the menu I’ve created a ‘nav’ are and passed in the menu items and link areas.
Then the form, added the form elements and giving them back end info such as: ‘id’, ‘name’
Used an autofocus for the name to have it ready for when somebody lands on the page they can start typing; so many forms you click the link then you must click in the first text box to start filling it out, I set it up to save the visitor just that little bit of time. I didn’t add tab order since the browsers where able to read in the right order. Left to right; top to bottom.
At bottom of the form created a spot to display results back from server, may not get used for final version.
There’s a lot going on I’ll just go over the basics, they are broken down by section in the CSS itself. Such as the whole HTML with font (size, color, etc)
The menu to display the items from ‘nav’ into a horizontal strip and add the background color and animation of the hover.
Form: background boxes and sizes.
Logo: Size centering
