input type="submit" differs from input type="Login"

74 New Member
so this has been blowing my mind for a few hours now and i have no idea what's going on.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <form action="userLogin.php" method="get">
  2.         Username: <input type="text" name="userName" /><br/>
  3.         Password: <input type="password" name="pwd" /><br/>
  4.         <input type="submit" />
  5.     </form>
will produce exactly what i want, 2 text fields and a submit button labeled "Submit Query", but when i change the word "submit" to "login"

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <form action="userLogin.php" method="get">
  2.         Username: <input type="text" name="userName" /><br/>
  3.         Password: <input type="password" name="pwd" /><br/>
  4.         <input type="Login" />
  5.     </form>

i get 3 text fields and the "Submit Query" button has disappeared. can someone PLEASE explain what's going on?

thanks :)

Unless I misunderstand you, Login isn't a valid input type with html. If you just want the button to say login, use

  1. <input type="submit" value="Login"/>

Nothing, apparently. Moved to HTML/CSS.

Hello, I need a piece of javascript that will allow a form to be submitted when Enter is pressed for IE6 and 7, Firefox 2, and recent versions of Safari.

(That is, it is not INPUT TYPE="IMAGE" but rather an IMAGE tag with...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
