When utilizing forms, it is helpful to use a combination of the ID and name attributes, I typically name and ID my form and nearly all of my form fields so it is easy to manage them programmatically. Here is an example:

<form id="contactForm" name="contactForm">
    <input id="firstName" name="firstName" type="text">
    <input id="lastName" name="lastName" type="text">
    <input id="phone" name="phone" type="tel">
    <input id="submit" name="submit" type="button" value"Contact Us">

To access a field via the name attribute:


Either one is a valid access method, but with forms and their processing, the form object is typically easier and used more often.

Happy Coding!
