The Input component is a component that is used to get user input in a text field.



Here's a basic usage example of the Input component:

Editable Example

Changing the size of the Input#

There are three sizes of an Input:

  • sm (24px)
  • md (32px)
  • lg (40px)
Editable Example

Changing the appearance of the input#

The input component comes in 4 variants: outline, unstyled, flushed, and filled. Pass the variant prop and set it to one of these values.

Editable Example

Left and Right Addons#

Like bootstrap, you can add addons to the left and right of the Input component. Chakra UI exports InputGroup, InputLeftAddon, and InputRightAddon to help with this use case.

Editable Example

Add elements inside Input#

In some scenarios, you might need to add an icon or button inside the input component. Chakra UI exports InputLeftElement and InputRightElement to help with this use case.

If the left or right is an icon or text, you can pass pointerEvents="none" to InputLeftElement or InputRightElement to ensure that clicking on them focused the input.

Password Input Example#

Let's use these components to create a password input with a show/hide password functionality:

Editable Example

Changing the focus and error border colors#

You can change the border color that shows when the input receives focus (focusBorderColor) and when isInvalid is set to true (errorBorderColor). The value can be set to a color in the theme object, like teal.400, or a raw CSS value.
