Yes we have to write the html form code within the gadget.xml

We need not use the form tag. Instead ajax calls can be done to submit the data

You should certainly be able to do this. The gadget view is constucted using html elements and the interaction with server is done using REST. When you submit the form, you will have to use Ajax to capture the results and render it properly on the page. Easier said than done ;)

I understand that in the gadget.xml we should write javascript for displaying the datas. Will i be writing the whole html form code within the gadget.xml? Is there any good example ?
