Definition:

A form should always begin and close with a "form" tag. The attribute "name" for form tag may be defined (e.g "name=myform"). However the name will be required only during form action's which will require php or any other server side scripting language. So we will see those things in our php tutorials.
Here we define the text field using "input" tag. we give a attribute called "TYPE=TEXT" inside the tag, which defines the type as a text field. The attribute "name" for input tag may be defined. The value which we want to be displayed in the textfield should be given using the attribute "value"( e.g: value=Enter)

We can set the size of the text field using the attribute "SIZE" as 'size=50'

Example Code:


<input type="text" name=myText value="Enter Your Name" size=50>

Example Code:


<input type="text" name=myText value="Enter Your Name" readonly>
