Learn how and when to use the textarea element, as well as the input types color, file, password, hidden, range, and search.
- [Instructor] Here are a few additional input types…that can be used to collect text,…as well as some more specific types of data.…And the first is a text area element,…which can be used to collect text on multiple lines.…So inside my form,…I'm going to add first the label.…And I'm going to ask the user to write a poem.…
And then the text area element ID is poem,…and name is also poem.…And it needs a closing tag,…even though there's nothing in between them.…And then add some line breaks after that.…So going to look at that in the browser,…it's not just a one line box like I get for inputs,…I can actually type in some text…and hit Enter between the lines.…So the box looks pretty small.…
You can resize it using CSS, but what's interesting…is that the user can actually resize it themselves…by clicking on the corner of the box…and making it larger or smaller on the page.…However, most users don't know that they can do that.…The next input type is color,…and this allows the user to select a color.…Unfortunately, it's not supported in all browsers yet.…
