$element = new Element\Url('my-url');

// Within your view...
echo $this->formUrl($element);

Output:

<input type="url" name="my-url" value="">

Usage of custom regular expression pattern:

use Zend\Form\Element;

$element = new Element\Url('my-url');
$element->setAttribute('pattern', 'https?://.+');

// Within your view...
echo $this->formUrl($element);
