Enhanced Bootstrap Input group

Bootstrap Input group

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

What's New

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 <label>s outside the input group.

@
@example.com
https://example.com/users/
$ .00
With textarea
<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon1">@</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addon1">
</div>

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Recipient's username" aria-label="Recipient's username" aria-describedby="basic-addon2">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon2">@example.com</span>
</div>

<label for="basic-url" class="form-label">Your vanity URL</label>
<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon3">https://example.com/users/</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" id="basic-url" aria-describedby="basic-addon3">
</div>

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <span class="input-group-text">$</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)">
  <span class="input-group-text">.00</span>
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-text">With textarea</span>
  <textarea class="form-control" aria-label="With textarea"></textarea>
</div>

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.

@
<div class="input-group flex-nowrap">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="addon-wrapping">@</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="addon-wrapping">
</div>

Sizing

Add the relative form sizing classes to the .input-group itself and contents within will automatically resizeā€”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
<div class="input-group input-group-sm mb-3">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="inputGroup-sizing-sm">Small</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Sizing example input" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-sm">
</div>

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="inputGroup-sizing-default">Default</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Sizing example input" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-default">
</div>

<div class="input-group input-group-lg">
  <span class="input-group-text" id="inputGroup-sizing-lg">Large</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Sizing example input" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-lg">
</div>

Checkboxes and radios

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

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-text">
    <input class="form-check-input" type="checkbox" value="" aria-label="Checkbox for following text input">
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Text input with checkbox">
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <div class="input-group-text">
    <input class="form-check-input" type="radio" value="" aria-label="Radio button for following text input">
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Text input with radio button">
</div>

Multiple inputs

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

First and last name
<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-text">First and last name</span>
  <input type="text" aria-label="First name" class="form-control">
  <input type="text" aria-label="Last name" class="form-control">
</div>

Multiple addons

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

Accessibility

Screen readers will have trouble with your forms if you don’t include a label for every input. For these input groups, ensure that any additional label or functionality is conveyed to assistive technologies.

The exact technique to be used (<label> elements hidden using the .visually-hidden class, or use of the aria-label and aria-labelledby attributes, possibly in combination with aria-describedby) and what additional information will need to be conveyed will vary depending on the exact type of interface widget you’re implementing. The examples in this section provide a few suggested, case-specific approaches.

Styling

Transparent

To remove the background color from the inputs, add .inputs-transparent class to the parent element or <form>.

@
@example.com
https://example.com/users/
$ .00
With textarea
<div class="inputs-transparent">

  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addonTransparent1">@</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addonTransparent1">
  </div>

  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Recipient's username" aria-label="Recipient's username" aria-describedby="basic-addonTransparent2">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addonTransparent2">@example.com</span>
  </div>

  <label for="basic-urlTransparent" class="form-label">Your vanity URL</label>
  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addonTransparent3">https://example.com/users/</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="basic-urlTransparent" aria-describedby="basic-addonTransparent3">
  </div>

  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <span class="input-group-text">$</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)">
    <span class="input-group-text">.00</span>
  </div>

  <div class="input-group">
    <span class="input-group-text">With textarea</span>
    <textarea class="form-control" aria-label="With textarea"></textarea>
  </div>
</div>

Transparent on dark background

You can also combine a .inputs-transparent with .form-dark class. Caret will automatically change the color to light.

@
@example.com
https://example.com/users/
$ .00
With textarea
<div class="inputs-transparent form-dark">

  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addonTransparent1">@</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addonTransparent1">
  </div>

  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Recipient's username" aria-label="Recipient's username" aria-describedby="basic-addonTransparent2">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addonTransparent2">@example.com</span>
  </div>

  <label for="basic-urlTransparent" class="form-label">Your vanity URL</label>
  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addonTransparent3">https://example.com/users/</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" id="basic-urlTransparent" aria-describedby="basic-addonTransparent3">
  </div>

  <div class="input-group mb-3">
    <span class="input-group-text">$</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)">
    <span class="input-group-text">.00</span>
  </div>

  <div class="input-group">
    <span class="input-group-text">With textarea</span>
    <textarea class="form-control" aria-label="With textarea"></textarea>
  </div>
</div>
