Sizing

Add the relative form sizing classes to the .input-group 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.

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 .sr-only 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.

Angular Input Group - API

In this section you will find informations about required modules and available inputs, outputs, methods and events of input group component.


Modules used

In order to speed up your application, you can choose to import only the modules you actually need, instead of importing the entire MDB Angular library. Remember that importing the entire library, and immediately afterwards a specific module, is bad practice, and can cause application errors.

API Reference for MDB Angular Input Groups:
// MDB Angular Pro
import { InputsModule, WavesModule, ButtonsModule } from 'ng-uikit-pro-standard'
// MDB Angular Free
import { InputsModule, WavesModule, ButtonsModule } from 'angular-bootstrap-md'
