Accept text input into a table

Accept text input into a table

I'm looking to accept text input directly into a table cell or textbox on a web page.

The text needs to be saved in the table on the web page so that returning users see the new text and can change it.

Anyone have any code or ideas how to do this?

Thanks in advance

RE: Accept text input into a table

You would probably need some type of server side language (ASP, .NET, PHP) to read from the database that you are storing this information.  And you can enter the text - anyone or must they have some type of authority?

RE: Accept text input into a table

put an input box into the cell.  This is how I would do it in HTML.  No idea how it is done with the clicky stuff in frontpage.  It will probably put a form around the input which you have to remove.


<tr><td><input name="tester"></td></tr>
You can then set the initial value of the input box when the page is next displayed.
