  1. $_POST

Code Highlights:

In the above code, first, we create an HTML form with the method POST and action attribute for form submission.

Then we create 3 input fields,

  • hidden input
  • text input
  • submit button input

All inputs have their name attribute. Remember name attribute is important to send the data to the PHP code.

Now, we write the PHP code to get the data,

First, we check whether the button is clicked or not by using the PHP isset() method, where we pass the submit button value as a parameter.

Then by using $_POST the method we take hidden field and text field data.
