Which CSS tag creates a box like this with title?

I want to create a box like this with title:

CSS box with title

Can any one please let me know if there is a default CSS tag to do this? Or do I need to create my custom style?

Answers:

I believe you are looking for the fieldset HTML tag, which you can then style with CSS. E.g.,

<fieldset style="border: 1px black solid">

<legend style="border: 1px black solid;margin-left: 1em; padding: 0.2em 0.8em ">title</legend>

Text within the box <br />
Etc
</fieldset>

If you are not using it in forms, and instead want to use it in an non-editable form, you can do this via the following code –

<div class="title_box" id="bill_to">
    <div id="title">Bill To</div>
    <div id="content">
        Stuff goes here.<br>
        For example, a bill-to address
    </div>
</div>

And in the CSS file

.title_box { 
    border: #3c5a86 1px dotted; 
}

.title_box #title { 
    position: relative; 
    top : -0.5em;
    margin-left: 1em;
    display: inline; 
    background-color: white; 
}

.title_box #content {
}

As far as I know (correct me if I’m wrong!), there isn’t.

I’d recommend you to use a div with a negative-margin-h1 inside. Depending on the semantic structure of your document, you could also use a fieldset (HTML) with one legend (HTML) inside which approximately looks like this by default.

Just try out this.

<fieldset class="fldset-class">
<legend class="legend-class">Your Personal Inormation</legend>
  <table>
    <tr>
      <td><label>Name</label></td>
      <td><input type='text' name='name'></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><label>Address</label></td>
      <td><input type='text' name='Address'></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><label>City</label></td>
      <td><input type='text' name='City'></td>
    </tr>
 </table>
</fieldset>

I think this example can also be useful for someone:

.fldset-class
{
  border: 1px solid #0099dd;
  margin: 3pt;
  border-top: 15px solid #0099dd
}
.legend-class
{
  color: #0099dd;
}
<fieldset class="fldset-class">
<legend class="legend-class">Your Personal Inormation</legend>
  <table>
    <tr>
      <td><label>Name</label></td>
      <td><input type='text' name='name'></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><label>Address</label></td>
      <td><input type='text' name='Address'></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td><label>City</label></td>
      <td><input type='text' name='City'></td>
    </tr>
 </table>
</fieldset>
