HTML <isindex> Tag
The HTML <isindex> tag is not supported in HTML5. To query a document by providing a single-line text input in a page, the HTML <isindex> tag was used earlier. The list of the pages that matched with the query, was sent by the server in return. This tag was preferably placed within the <head> tag. The HTML form <input> tag is used nowadays to serve the same purpose.
<isindex prompt = text />
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <isindex prompt = "Hello World!!" /> </head> </html>
|prompt||hint-text||To add a value (as a label) to the search text field.|
|action||URL||To send the query to various URL (and not the current document).|
The HTML Global attributes are supported by the HTML <isindex> tag.
The HTML Event attributes are supported by the HTML <isindex> tag.
