Lesson Info

Placeholder Form Text

All right. We'll start with placeholder and we'll do label second because placeholders. Super easy. So if I want this field here to have placeholder text. Okay, just right placeholder Okay, equals. And you put in your quotation marks and then just put in whatever you want. Now this this can be anything in here. It's safe. And because we are opening and closing files, just make sure you close and then reopen your um testing page and make sure you're not working on the live one. Okay, Because that's not going to adjust or change unless you right click it in your Explorer and send it online. I was going to close it down and make it clear so I don't get confused. You can see the placeholder text. Okay, when you click on it, you can, it goes over the top. But yeah, it just fills in there so you can do it or any of these. Okay, so please hold on placeholder and we'll put in maybe dan at sample come save and you can see that. Cool. Hey, now a label is different. It is text that goes above it.

Okay, so what we'll do is let's do it for the name here. So let's remove placeholder. You can have both. Let's have both putting some spaces between it just to make it clear for me mainly. Um so the label can go anywhere on the page, it can be just in front of it sometimes just after it's more appropriate and all it is is label Okay. Label even. Okay and four. This is where because these are totally separate things. The fact that over top of each other because we could just write a P. Tag and say actually this is a P. Tag of your name. Okay. And that would work there. It is there and he kind of describes that thing But we want this label because this label does other things. So label four and make sure you use the I. D. It's the label for name because it's associated with this now linked and this is where you put the text for it. So this is first name. We're gonna do styling a little bit later on but it's a first name is for this. Why is this different? It's because mainly for screen readers and accessibility. Okay because I can click on first name now and it actually can see that highlighted the first name box. Okay so it's actually connected to it. So I could have it anywhere I like. Okay so I'm going to cut it and put it after my submit button. Okay so it's still there. But watch when I click it it lights up. You'd never have it back here but I just wanted to show you the connection as long as the I. D. Matches for. Okay then that's associated with it. We want some good practice for forms because this can be probably one of the hardest things for somebody that is visually impaired that's using a screen reader needs help with. Again we could do one for this. You there and but this one just needs to make sure that the two things, the four is going to the idea of email. Okay. And this one is going to be email. Cool, cool. So that's placeholders and labels. Before we go there, all on one line I've been ignoring. Okay, so at the moment by default, these form inputs are a type of display. What kind of display are they? Okay. They're not block because they're all on the same line. Do you know what they are? They're in line elements. Okay, so we want to change that. Okay, basically what we're going to do instead of saying label or label and input are all kind of separate things. What we're going to do is create a wrapper, div tag, div tags by default block level. So what we're gonna do is what should we do and wrap it around both of these. I'm gonna use my command shift P or control shift p. I'll use the rep and I'm going to wrap it around, I'm gonna create a new class called input rapper. Okay. And because it's a block level and it's inside of it, watch, save it, it ends up on its own line. So we don't have to do anything. And I'm going to do this because I want to style it in line. I plan to style this later on, to style the things inside of it. I could say make all the text inside of here, smaller or bigger. Okay, so I'm just gonna reuse that a few times. So these two guys are gonna go together in their own little commander CFB control shift P rap and we're gonna call this one, was it called man? Used to way too long and copy and paste it. Okay, Same with the submit button actually because he's at the end, he doesn't need to be in his own div because this div here pushes him away. Alright, it's going to make it a little nicer and actually let's separate them out because because just because they're too close together, we're going to do styling properly a little bit later on. But just for the moment, just for my sanity as a designer, I'm going to open in my CS CS, not reset. I'm gonna look for styles dot CSS Okay, move it over here and I'm going to style the input rapper and I'm gonna say let's just have some margin. What do you margin at the top margin? Top I start doing this, I get real lazy, you can see I just put in my top, Got it, I don't know how it's magic and I'll put in maybe 20 pixels. Just I want my bottom either as well, not my top margin bottom sin taxes wrong. I think it's right. Alright, nope, it's got squiggly line. There you go. But um so bad. Alright, there we go. So I've got some margins underneath them just to make a little easier for the rest of the next videos where we look at some of the other input ones, we've got text ones done or the submit button is done. Let's look at the other common ones, but we'll do it in another video. I'll see you there in a sec.
