20. XHTML MP Input Elements

Like HTML, XHTML MP provides numerous input element types for obtaining data from users. The following input element types are available in XHTML MP:

  1. Text field

  2. Password field

  3. Checkbox

  4. Radio button

  5. Hidden field

All of the above input elements are created with the <input> element. To send the user data to the server, the <input> element has to be used in conjunction with the <form> element. The <form> element will be mentioned in more detail later at the "Sending Data to the Server in XHTML MP" section.

The type attribute of the <input> element defines the input element type in XHTML MP.

The name attribute of the <input> element specifies the name of the input element. The name will be used to retrieve the user data at the server.
