Consensus: javascript forms, good or bad?


#1

Is the practice of using javascript forms for adding data a good idea?
I
don’t think they are because of error handling, but I’m not an expert at
using ajax. I’ve only used it moderation for some usability
improvements.

thanks for any input,
andy

On the open internet?

Or in an Enterprise situation, where everyone has the exact same
Starfleet
Web Browser?

Should be considered an “open internet” situation.

Bad; the site should degrade gracefully. If Lynx can’t get to it, then
you
will have advocates for disabled people advocating at you.

That is a good point and I agree. Any other functionality issues you
know
of? Reason I ask is that it will be an internal app, but for quite a
few
people. I don’t like to code to a browser and forcing that restriction
is
not something I will do.

Thanks for input!
