HTML5 Input Types


HTML5 New Input Types

HTML5 has several new input types for forms. These new features allow better input control and validation.

This chapter covers the new input types:

  • color
  • date
  • datetime
  • datetime-local
  • email
  • month
  • number
  • range
  • search
  • tel
  • time
  • url
  • week
Note

Not all browsers support all the new input types. However, you can already start using them; If they are not supported, they will behave as regular text fields.
