In continuation of the topic 'Build custom HTML forms in Power Pages: Part 1', this part deals with the creation of a custom HTML form with Power Pages WebAPI to generate new records in Microsoft Dataverse. Rather than using a pre-built form from a model-driven app, the focus is on developing a unique, made-to-order HTML form. The discussion also includes the process of updating existing records.
Custom HTML forms in Power Pages allow for greater customization and control over data manipulation in Microsoft Dataverse. These forms go beyond pre-made form components and allow developers to craft data recording and updating processes to better fit their specific needs. With the use of the Power Pages WebAPI, developers can extend their data capabilities by not only creating but also effectively managing and manipulating records. Most importantly, this includes the ability to update existing records—a critical feature for maintaining and managing datasets."
In Part 2 of this series, learn how to build custom HTML forms in Power Pages to update existing records.
