You can give your text inputs a little boost using the
<datalist> element. It’s a bit like a blend of
<select>. This article will outline how to use it.
This is how you can use the
<datalist> element in your HTML5 markup:
<label for="favorite-band">Your favorite band?</label> <input list="fish" name="fish-choice" id="fish-choice>" /> <datalist id="fish"> <option value="Shark"> <option value="Tuna"> <option value="Ulua"> </datalist>
<datalist> element is a useful feature of HTML.
