We regularly come across fields on web pages used to collect user input, like names, e-mail addresses, checkbox answers or messages. This bundle of features on a website is a form. Forms are the most common interface used on websites or web applications. A form consists of different form elements called controls or widgets. Controls are usually defined by input elements which in their turn have numerous different types. So, a form can have for instance three input elements; one with type "text" for name, another one with type "email" for e-mail address and a third one with type "submit"; the well known submit button.
