HTML Label Tag

Browser Support

Internet Explorer Firefox Opera Safari Chrome

The label tag defines a label for a form input element. It allows users to click the text by an input widget to activate it.

This can be handy for people with motor impairment and have difficulty controlling a mouse with precision.

Here's an example of usage:

Click on the text beside the radio buttons instead of on the radio buttons and watch the button activate anyway. Neat, eh?

Here's the code:

<label for="Vanilla">Vanilla</label>
<input type="radio" name="Fave Ice Cream" id="Vanilla" />
<br />
<label for="Chocolate">Chocolate</label>
<input type="radio" name="Fave Ice Cream" id="Chocolate" />

The value of the for attribute should be exactly the same as the value of the id attribute of the related input element to connect them together.

This concludes the HTML Label Tutorial.
