Searching for entries to place in a form

Is there an Input type for finding a row in a database?

The following is the input to find a file on your local computer

<input type="file" name="name" />

However, what is the input type to search a particular column in a table of a mysql database?

There is no input type for doing that because you’re trying to retrieve data, not input it. You have to perform a SELECT query on the db table to retrieve it. In your case, probably after the form has been submitted.

Also, the file input isn’t for finding a file on your computer, it’s for selecting a file. You have to find the file. :slight_smile:
