What is the "for" attribute?

I have worked with HTML for a while but have never came across the "for" attribute until today, what is it actually used for? I've had a quick browse on the internet but can't work it out?

1 Answer

The "for" Attribute is used on label elements. You'll learn about in HTML Forms course. When you click on the label, the bound input element will be selected.
