Validating url php

It also means that if you click the label, the associated input tag receives the focus.

They also help with accessibility, as the text in the label will be read out to screen reader users: it can therefore be useful to indicate required fields by adding ‘required’ to the label text, as I’ve done above.

We will use the remote validator to verify it in the next step.

Currently, if you leave the captcha empty and submit the form, the field will be masked as invalid.

We can achieve this by adding a pattern attribute to the 'Name' field, setting it's value to the regular expression we want the data to be compared against: The text in the title attribute is then appended to the built-in validation message: Note that some screen reader / browser combinations might lead to the title attribute being read out in addition to the aria-describedby text, so watch out for this e.g.

I found that using NVDA with IE10 caused the title attribute and the aria-describedby element's text to be read out, but using NVDA with Chrome and Firefox didn’t exhibit this behaviour. Later on we’ll revisit this and show you one solution using CSS3.

Another option would be to continue to use solely Java Script for your client-side validation, and not add any of the new features discussed above.

Let's walk through an example of how we can validate a form using only the browser's built in validation.

After making all these changes our HTML now looks like this: https://jsfiddle.net/ianoxley/9C2JD/ The good news is that HTML form validation is supported by all the latest desktop browsers, and most mobile browsers.

The bad news is that it is only partially supported in Safari, and isn't supported at all on i OS Safari, or the default Android browser.

Take this simple booking form: attribute for the label tag matches up with the id attribute of the associated input tag.

This keeps our HTML semantic, with the labels helping to give meaning to the input controls.
