This variable is used to get a value from a form. Below is an example:

<form action=”myphp.php” method=”GET”>
Firstname: <input type=”text” name=”firstname” />
Lastname: <input type=”text” name=”lastname” />
<input type=”submit” />

When the user clicks the submit button, it will then display a different URL depending on the user’s input. I’ll use Bryan for first name and King for last name so the URL will look like this:

Now, we can use the two values passed from the form by using the $_GET variable:

echo “Firstname: “ . $_GET[“firstname”] . “<br />”;
echo “Lastname: “ . $_GET[“lastname”] ;
