What is required Attribute in HTML <textarea> Tag?

When we have a <textfield> element in a form of an HTML document and we want to make sure users fill that field as well, we can use the `required` attribute.

Setting this attribute in a <textfield>, requires users to fill the field with data. Otherwise, the form won’t be submitted to a server if users clicked a submit button. Also, browsers show an error message in such cases, warning that the users need to fill the textarea with a value before submitting the form to a server.
