Input tags in HTML are a way of getting an input from the user. The commonly used input types are text, password, email, number etc.
But there's more to it. Here are 5 input types that every Web Developer must know!
input type ="color":
You can now have a color picker in your webpage. How cool is that?? Just set type property as color in input tag. You can also pass a initial color value in value attribute.
input type ="search":
Now this type is similar to regular text type but with a small difference. The input box automatically adds a cross icon after you start typing to clear the input field. This is very handy input type when you want to add a search box field.
Use this type when you want the user to fill a phone number. When accessed through a touch device (phone/tablet) the input type opens up a numerical keyboard.
This input type allows user to select Time, Date, Month and Year.
This is another alternative for numerical inputs. This allows user to input a numerical value with a slider control. Use min-max attributes to provide a valid range.
Make sure you try them in your next project! Good luck!
