What are HTML Forms?

Form elements are different types of input elements, like text fields, checkboxes, radio buttons, submit buttons, and more.

The HTML<form>
form elements

The <input> element is the most important form element. It can be displayed in several ways, depending on the type attribute.
<input type="text">  For one-line text input field
<input type="radio"> Defines a radio button
<input type="submit"> Defines a submit button

Action Attribute
The action attribute defines the action to be performed when the form is submitted. Normally, the form data is sent to a web page on the server when the user clicks on the submit button. 
<form action="/action_page.php">
If the action attribute is omitted, the action is set to the current page.
Target Attribute
The target attribute specifies if the submitted result will open in a new browser tab, a frame, or in the current window.
The default value is "_self" which means the form will be submitted in the current window. To make the form result open in a new browser tab, use the value "_blank":
<form action="/action_page.php" target="_blank">

Other legal values are "_parent", "_top", or a name representing the name of an iframe.
Method Attribute
The method attribute specifies the HTTP method (GET or POST) to be used when submitting the form data:
<form action="/action_page.php" method="get">
