Create a form to send a text message

So, your API is activated for your account, and you've got Curl installed. Now it's time to build a simple example application. We're going to build a form to send a single text message. We'll submit the following information:

  • The phone number we'll be sending our test message to.
  • The message itself
  • A subject (not required)
  • Whether your message is Express or Standard

Copy and past this chunk of HTML into your favorite editor:

<style type="text/css">
    .example { width: 300px; }
    .example label { float: left; width: 100px; }

<div class="example">
    <form name="example" method="post" action="send.php">
        <label for="phone_number">Phone Number:</label><input type="text" maxlength="10" name="phone_number" id="phone_number" /><br />
        <label for="subject">Subject:</label><input type="text" name="subject" id="subject" /><br />
        <label for="message">Message:</label><textarea name="message" id="message"></textarea><br />
        <label for="message_type">Express?:</label>
        <select name="message_type" id="message_type">
            <option value="1" selected="selected">Express</option>
            <option value="2">Standard</option>
        </select><br />
        <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
