security note Security Alert   Using this object incorrectly can compromise the security of your application. When submitting text through INPUT type=text over an intranet or the Internet, validating the text string is recommended. For instance, you might validate the string for a restricted set of known, good values (like letters and numbers) and ignore the rest. You should review the Security Considerations: Dynamic HTML before continuing.

This element is an inline element.

This element does not require a closing tag.

Examples

This example uses the INPUT type=text element to create an empty text control that can contain 15 characters without requiring the user to scroll to read all of the text.

             <INPUT TYPE=text VALUE="" NAME="textbox" SIZE=15>
            

This example uses script to detect the content of the text box and display it in a dialog box.

             <SCRIPT>
function detectEntry()
{
    alert("Your name is " + textbox.value)
}
</SCRIPT>
