The Action Attribute
The action attribute defines the action to be performed when the form is submitted, which usually leads to a script that collects the information submitted and works with it. if you leave it blank, it will send it to the same file
The Method Attribute
The method attribute is used to define the HTTP method of the form which is either GET or POST.
<form action="action.php" method="get"> <form action="action.php" method="post">
The GET method is mostly used to get data, for example to receive a post by its ID or name, or to submit a search query. The GET method will append the form data to the URL specified in the action attribute.
The POST method is used when submitting data to a script. The POST method does not append the form data to the action URL but sends using the request body.
To submit the data from the form correctly, a name attribute name must be specified.
As an example let’s send the value of the field and set its name to lastname:
<input type="text" name="lastname" value="Mouse">
<form action="action.php" method="post" target="_blank" accept-charset="UTF-8" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" autocomplete="off" novalidate> <!-- form elements --> </form>
