HTMLInputElement

Examples

This example uses the input type=tel element to create an empty telephone control. The telephone control does not validate or enforce a specific format, so the pattern attribute is used to require the correct format. The title attribute gives users a guide when they hover over the field.

<input type="tel" name="teleNumber" pattern="\(\d\d\d\) ?\d\d\d-\d\d\d\d" title="(###) ###-####"

Notes

Remarks

Note For code samples, see Form controls part 1 and Form controls part 2: validation on the Windows Internet Explorer sample site.
