inputmode global attribute is an enumerated attribute that hints at the type of data that might be entered by the user while editing the element or its contents.
This allows a browser to display an appropriate virtual keyboard.
It's important to understand that the
inputmode attribute doesn't cause any validity requirements to be enforced on input. To require that input conforms to a particular data type, choose an appropriate
<input> element type. For specific guidance on choosing
<input> types, see the Values section.
The attribute can have any of the following values:
No virtual keyboard. For when the page implements its own keyboard input control.
Standard input keyboard for the user's current locale.
Fractional numeric input keyboard containing the digits and decimal separator for the user's locale (typically . or ,). Devices may or may not show a minus key (-).
Numeric input keyboard, but only requires the digits 0–9. Devices may or may not show a minus key.
A telephone keypad input, including the digits 0–9, the asterisk (*), and the pound (#) key. Inputs that *require* a telephone number should typically use

A keypad optimized for entering URLs. This may have the / key more prominent, for example. Enhanced features could include history access and so on. Inputs that require a URL should typically use
