HTML and CSS Reference
Figure 4-19. Three panels showing how a data list can be associated with a text input field. The
associated data list appears when placing focus in the text input field, and the list is narrowed
down to matching options as letters are typed.
Other form controls
The input element is undoubtedly a large and versatile element, but it isn't the only
form control. We've talked about button , but there is also select (and option )
and textarea . These aren't new to HTML5, however. What has been added has been
datalist , which was covered in the prior section; progress ; meter (otherwise
known as a gauge); output ; and keygen . Let's take a look at each of the controls that
haven't been covered yet, from old to new.
