How To Use "submit" Input/Action Fields? - XHTML 1.0 Tutorials - Understanding Forms and Input Fields



A "submit" input field is defined as <input type="submit" .../>. "submit" input fields can be used to create submit buttons in a form. When a submit button is clicked, the form will be closed and input data will be submitted to the processing program. "submit" input fields can also be specified with default values to be submitted like other input fields. There are other attributes you may need to use for a "submit" input field:

  • name="fieldName" - Specifies the name of this field.
  • value="buttonValue" - Specifies the value to be displayed on the submit button. The default is value="Submit Query".
