Difference between button and input type


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am a newbie with HTML5 and i have some questions: which is the difference between these tags?


1) <button type="button" onclick="function()>CIAO</button>
2) <input type="button" onclick="function()" value="CIAO">
3) <button type=submit>INVIA</button>
4) <input type="submit" value="INVIA">
According to me, 1) and 2) are the same thing (simple button).
Also 3) and 4) (a way to submit form).
Which form is used normally? Thanks

That's been around since long before HTML 5.


The difference between <button> and <input type="button"> is that you're allowed to put elements inside the <button> tag. For example:

<button type="button">Click <strong>here</strong></button>

The same with <input type="submit"> and <button type="submit">.
