PHP Tutorial – $_REQUEST Function

In previous tutorials we already looked at the PHP built-in $_GET function and $_POST function. In this tutorial we take a quick look at the PHP built-in $_REQUEST function.

The PHP built-in $_REQUEST function can be used with both the GET and POST methods.

Let’s take a look at an $_REQUEST function example:


<form action="test.php" method="post">
Your name: <input type="text" name="yourname" />
<input type="submit" />


In the test.php script we can do the following (note: that we have use the POST method in the form):

Welcome <?php echo $_REQUEST ["yourname"]; ?>!

That’s all for this tutorial. (We said it would be a quick look ;-) )
