Validating datetime ryan corr and gabrielle scollay dating
Please send corrections and suggested improvements to [email protected] As of January 2013, Opera had the most complete support for these new input elements, followed closely by Chrome.
Firefox and Safari had moderate support, and Internet Explorer had no support at all.
See later sections on email and URL input for support for autocomplete lists with those textfield types.
On change, Opera adds " to the front of URLs that lack it.
(The definition of onchange is when you enter something and then click in a different textfield or otherwise have the original textfield lose focus.) On submission, Opera gives an error message if the URL contains illegal characters, but does not do full URL validation (e.g., " [no host] and "htp:" [bogus protocol, no host] are both allowed).
Safari uses an interface that looks like a number spinner but increments the yyyy-mm-dd string one day at a time.
As of January 2013, neither Firefox nor Internet Explorer has any support at all for date input.
The value of "list" should be the id of a "datalist" element that contains "option" elements giving the choices.
