Support CoreUI Development

CoreUI is an MIT-licensed open source project and is completely free to use. However, the amount of effort needed to maintain and develop new features for the project is not sustainable without proper financial backing.

You can support our Open Source software development in the following ways:

  • Buy the CoreUI PRO, and get access to PRO components, and dedicated support.
  • Became a sponsor, and get your logo on BACKERS.md/README.md files or each site of this documentation
  • Give us a star ⭐️ on Github.

React Input Group Component

Easily extend form controls by adding text, buttons, or button groups on either side of textual inputs, custom selects, and custom file inputs.

Basic example#

Place one add-on or button on either side of an input. You may also place one on both sides of an input. Remember to place <CFormLabel>s outside the input group.

@
@example.com
https://example.com/users/
$.00
@
With textarea
1<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
2 <CInputGroupText id="basic-addon1">@</CInputGroupText>
3 <CFormInput placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addon1"/>
4</CInputGroup>
5
6<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
7 <CFormInput placeholder="Recipient's username" aria-label="Recipient's username" aria-describedby="basic-addon2"/>
8 <CInputGroupText id="basic-addon2">@example.com</CInputGroupText>
9</CInputGroup>
10
11<CFormLabel htmlFor="basic-url">Your vanity URL</CFormLabel>
12<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
13 <CInputGroupText id="basic-addon3">https://example.com/users/</CInputGroupText>
14 <CFormInput id="basic-url" aria-describedby="basic-addon3"/>
15</CInputGroup>
16
17<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
18 <CInputGroupText>$</CInputGroupText>
19 <CFormInput aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)"/>
20 <CInputGroupText>.00</CInputGroupText>
21</CInputGroup>
22
23<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
24 <CFormInput placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username"/>
25 <CInputGroupText>@</CInputGroupText>
26 <CFormInput placeholder="Server" aria-label="Server"/>
27</CInputGroup>
28
29<CInputGroup>
30 <CInputGroupText>With textarea</CInputGroupText>
31 <CFormTextarea aria-label="With textarea"></CFormTextarea>
32</CInputGroup>

Wrapping#

Input groups wrap by default via flex-wrap: wrap in order to accommodate custom form field validation within an input group. You may disable this with .flex-nowrap.

@
1<CInputGroup className="flex-nowrap">
2 <CInputGroupText id="addon-wrapping">@</CInputGroupText>
3 <CFormInput placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="addon-wrapping" />
4</CInputGroup>

Sizing#

Add the relative form sizing classes to the <CInputGroup> itself and contents within will automatically resize—no need for repeating the form control size classes on each element.

Sizing on the individual input group elements isn't supported.

Small
Default
Large
1<CInputGroup size="sm" className="mb-3">
2 <CInputGroupText id="inputGroup-sizing-sm">Small</CInputGroupText>
3 <CFormInput aria-label="Sizing example input" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-sm"/>
4</CInputGroup>
5
6<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
7 <CInputGroupText id="inputGroup-sizing-default">Default</CInputGroupText>
8 <CFormInput aria-label="Sizing example input" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-default"/>
9</CInputGroup>
10
11<CInputGroup size="lg">
12 <CInputGroupText id="inputGroup-sizing-lg">Large</CInputGroupText>
13 <CFormInput aria-label="Sizing example input" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-lg"/>
14</CInputGroup>

Checkboxes and radios#

Place any checkbox or radio option within an input group's addon instead of text.

1<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
2 <CInputGroupText>
3 <CFormCheck type="checkbox" value="" aria-label="Checkbox for following text input"/>
4 </CInputGroupText>
5 <CFormInput aria-label="Text input with checkbox"/>
6</CInputGroup>
7
8<CInputGroup>
9 <CInputGroupText>
10 <CFormCheck type="radio" value="" aria-label="Radio button for following text input"/>
11 </CInputGroupText>
12 <CFormInput aria-label="Text input with radio button"/>
13</CInputGroup>

Multiple inputs#

While multiple <CFormInput>s are supported visually, validation styles are only available for input groups with a single <CFormInput>.

First and last name
1<CInputGroup>
2 <CInputGroupText>First and last name</CInputGroupText>
3 <CFormInput aria-label="First name" />
4 <CFormInput aria-label="Last name" />
5</CInputGroup>

Multiple addons#

Multiple add-ons are supported and can be mixed with checkbox and radio input versions.

$0.00
$0.00
1<CInputGroup className="mb-3">
2 <CInputGroupText>$</CInputGroupText>
3 <CInputGroupText>0.00</CInputGroupText>
4 <CFormInput aria-label="Dollar amount (with dot and two decimal places)"/>
5</CInputGroup>
6
7<CInputGroup>
8 <CFormInput aria-label="Dollar amount (with dot and two decimal places)"/>
