Input Element in HTML

In HTML, the <input> element is a workhorse for creating interactive controls within forms. But it's not just a generic input box. By specifying different input types with the type attribute, you can define the kind of data you want users to enter and how it should be displayed.


<input> Input Element  in HTML


There are many different input types available, each offering a specific user interface for data input. Here are some common examples:


  • text: This is the most basic type, creating a single-line text input field for generic text entry.
  • password: Similar to text, but the characters are masked with dots or asterisks for password security.
  • email: Creates a field specifically for entering email addresses. The browser may perform some basic validation to ensure the email format is correct.
  • url: Creates a field for entering URLs. Similar to email, the browser may provide basic validation to check the URL format.
  • number: Creates a field for numeric input. You can optionally specify restrictions like minimum and maximum values.
  • date: Creates a calendar date picker for selecting a date.
  • time: Creates a time picker for selecting a time.
  • checkbox: Creates a checkbox that can be toggled on or off. Typically used for boolean options (yes/no, true/false).
  • radio: Creates radio buttons where only one option within a group can be selected at a time.

By using the appropriate input type, you can guide users toward entering the correct kind of data and provide a more intuitive user experience for filling out your web forms.
