HTML <input> Tag with the 'minlength' Attribute

<form name="myForm" action="">
<input minlength="5" name="myField">



The above example demonstrates usage of the <input> element with the minlength attribute.

The minlength attribute allows you to restrict the length of the value that the user can input. Specifically, it allows you to specify a minimum number of characters that the user can input.

You can also use maxlength to specify a maximum length.

Note that at the time of writing, the minlength attribute was new to HTML and had very little browser support.
