I’m a student and webdesign is a hobby. I don’t do any client work. I simply create websites for fun. But there is one thing that i cant remember and that is the form elements. I understand how they work but i keep forgetting. All the other elements (tables, head, formatting elements,) i can remember like its in the back of my hand.
How do i solve this problem. Could anyone recommend excersises or tutorials to build forms.
Yeah I’d say just build more forms =) You’ll get it. There really isn’t THAT many.
form, input, label is 90% of it. Once in a while select, option, and textarea.
And just remember input has lots of types: text, radio, checkbox, submit ….
Build your forms from scratch, instead of grabbing pre-existing stuff will help tremendously. I used to despise it, but I find a kind of weird beauty in it now. Doing it right there is just loads of attributes. A single input likely has an ID, a class, a value, and a type. And it’s label has a for which matches the ID. Tons of attributes in forms, a beautiful mess.
