required property CSS Reference

Definition and Usage

The :required CSS pseudo-class represents any <input> element that has the required attribute set on it. This allows forms to easily indicate which fields must have valid data before the form can be submitted.

The :optional pseudo-class may be used to provide an appearance for optional form fields.


See :invalid for an example.
