HTML5 Input Types: Color Picker, Range Slider and Search Box

March 30, 2014
In HTML5, color picker can be achieved just by using color input type in the form. On clicking color picker, a pop up will be displayed, a user can select the color. Another important input type is range. For interactive UI, to get value from user, range slider is used. Now to use in our UI, just use HTML5 input type range and you are done. One more requirement in interactive UI is search box. If user has entered search keyword, and then he wants to remove it in one go, a cross sign is given in search box. Do it easily in HTML5 just by using an input type search. We will see above input type in detail with example. I have run all below examples on Opera version 12.12
