Input group

React Bootstrap 5 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 <label>s outside the input group.

With textarea
        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { 
              MDBInputGroup, 
            } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';
    
            export default function App() {
              return (
                <>
                  <MDBInputGroup textBefore='@' className='mb-3'>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' placeholder="Recipient's username" />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textAfter='@example.com'>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' placeholder="Recipient's username" />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <label htmlFor='basic-url2' className='form-label'>
                    Your vanity URL
                  </label>
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textBefore='https://example.com/users/'>
                    <input className='form-control' id='basic-url2' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textBefore='$' textAfter='.00'>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3'>
                    <input className='form-control' placeholder='Username' type='text' />
                    <span className='input-group-text'>@</span>
                    <input className='form-control' placeholder='Server' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textBefore='With textarea'>
                    <textarea className='form-control' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
                </>
              );
            }
          
        
    

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 noWrap.

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { 
              MDBInputGroup
            } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';
          
            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBInputGroup noWrap textBefore='@'>
                  <input className='form-control' type='text' placeholder='Username' />
                </MDBInputGroup>
              );
            }
          
        
    

Sizing

Add the relative form sizing props to the MDBInputGroup 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
        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { 
              MDBInputGroup,  
            } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';
    
            export default function App() {
              return (
                <>
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' size='sm' textBefore='Small'>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textBefore='Default'>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' size='lg' textBefore='Large'>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
                </>
              );
            }
          
        
    

No border

Add noBorder prop to the MDBInputGroupText to remove the border.

With textarea
        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { 
              MDBInputGroup,
              MDBIcon
            } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';
    
            export default function App() {
              return (

                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' noBorder textBefore={<MDBIcon fas icon='search' />}>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' placeholder='Search' />

                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' noBorder textBefore='@'>

                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <label htmlFor='basic-url1`' className='form-label'>
                    Your vanity URL
                  </label>
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' noBorder textBefore='https://example.com/users/'>
                    <input className='form-control rounded' id='basic-url1' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textAfter='.00' textBefore='$' noBorder>
                    <input className='form-control rounded' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup textBefore='With textarea'>
                    <textarea className='form-control' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
                </>
              );
            }
          
        
    

Checkboxes and radios

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

        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { 
              MDBInputGroup, 
              MDBCheckbox,
              MDBRadio
            } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';
          
            export default function App() {
              return (
                <>
                  <MDBInputGroup className='mb-3' textTag='div' textBefore={<MDBCheckbox />}>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
      
                  <MDBInputGroup textTag='div' textBefore={<MDBRadio />}>
                    <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  </MDBInputGroup>
                </>
              );
            }
          
        
    

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
        
            
            import React from 'react';
            import { 
              MDBInputGroup,  
            } from 'mdb-react-ui-kit';
          
            export default function App() {
              return (
                <MDBInputGroup textBefore='First and last name'>
                  <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                  <input className='form-control' type='text' />
                </MDBInputGroup>
              );
            }
          
        
    

Multiple addons

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