Summary -

In this topic, we described about the Search Input type with detailed example.

The search input type used for creating search fields. A search field acts like a normal textbox, but in a few browsers like Apple Safari and Google Chrome, as shortly as we begin typing in a search box a little cross seems on the right side of the text box that lets speedily clear the search text box.

Syntax -

<input type="search" name="search">

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
     <title>Search Input Type</title>
          function getValue() { 
          var term = document.getElementById("mysearch").value;
         <label for="mysearch">Search Website:</label>
         <input type="search" id="mysearch" placeholder="Type....">
         <button type="button" onclick="getValue();">Get Value</button>
