HTML Buttons

HTML Input Types: The Foundation

In our previous session, we delved into the realm of HTML input types. We explored various types like text, password, checkbox, and radio buttons, understanding their specific purposes and attributes.

Today, we embark on a new adventure, where we'll uncover the world of HTML buttons, powerful tools that enhance user interaction and functionality on web pages.

Types of HTML Buttons

HTML buttons come in various flavors, each serving a unique purpose:

  • Basic Button: The most versatile button, with no predefined type or behavior.
  • Submit Button: Triggers form submission, sending data to the server.
  • Reset Button: Resets all form fields to their initial values.
  • Image Button: Embeds an image as the button, adding visual appeal.

Styling Buttons: Making Them Shine

Styling buttons goes beyond aesthetics; it's about creating a user-friendly and intuitive experience. CSS properties like background-color, border, and font-weight allow you to customize the appearance and feel of your buttons.

Button Attributes: Controlling the Game

HTML buttons offer a range of attributes to control their behavior and functionality:

  • Type: Defines the button's primary action (submit, reset, button).
  • Value: Specifies the initial value of the button (for submit buttons).
  • Name: Assigns a unique name to the button for form submission.
  • Disabled: Disables the button, making it non-interactive.

Accessibility in Buttons: Making Them Inclusive

Accessibility is paramount when creating web pages. HTML buttons provide attributes to ensure inclusivity for all users:

  • Alt: Provides alternative text for screen readers to describe the button's purpose.
  • Title: Adds a tooltip that appears on hover, providing additional information.
  • Aria-label: Specifies the button's label for assistive technologies.

HTML Semantics: The Importance of Meaning
