W3C Candidate Recommendation


The max attribute specifies the maximum value for an <input> element.

Applies to HTMLInputElement

The max attribute works with the following input types: number, range, date, datetime, datetime-local, month, time and week.

For datetime, datetime-local, month, time, and week the value of the attribute must be a valid string of the type.

For number and range the value of the attribute must be a number: decimal or integer.


Two examples of max attributes on inputs.


The following date control limits input to dates that are before the 1980s:
<input name="start" type="date" max="1979-12-31">

Must be a number at least 1 and less than 101: <input name="quantity" required type="number" max="100" min="1">
