apex:input in Visualforce Page

The <apex: input> is a general-purpose input component that adapts to the data required for a form field. The <apex:input> component supports the HTML type attribute, which allows the client browser to display type-appropriate user input widgets.

We use the <apex: input> component for getting user input for a controller property or method that doesn't correspond to a field on a Salesforce object. This component does not use Salesforce styling.

The HTML pass-through attributes are supported by this component using the "html-" prefix, which is attached to the generated <input> tag.
