Vue Bootstrap Inputs

Vue Inputs - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

Vue Bootstrap input is a special field which is used in order to receive data from the user. Used mostly in a variety of web-based forms. You can use material design version or default bootstrap style.

Input value

Vue Input uses $emit inside component. To handle input value changes use @input event instead of v-model.

            <mdb-input type="text" @input="handleInput" id="exampleInput" label="Small input" size="sm" />

Icon prefixes

You can add icons to your inputs. Just use prop icon with icon name.

Default input

              <div class="input-group">
                <div class="input-group-prepend">
                  <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon">
                    <i class="fa fa-user prefix"></i>
                <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addon">

Material input

            <mdb-input type="text" @input="handleInput" id="exampleInput" label="Username" icon="user" />


To describe what the input stands for we use labels or placeholders. To set placeholder use it as a prop.

Default input

              <div class="form-group">
                <input type="email" class="form-control" placeholder="Your e-mail" />

Material input

            <mdb-input type="email" @input="handleInput" id="exampleInput" placeholder="Your e-mail" />


Label set up is the same as placeholder's. Jus set appropriate prop label.

Default input

              <div class="form-group">
                <label for="exampleInput">Your e-mail</label>
                <input type="email" id="exampleInput" class="form-control" />

Material input

            <mdb-input type="email" @input="handleInput" id="exampleInput" placeholder="Your e-mail" />


To prevent user interaqctions add boolean disabled prop.

Default input

              <div class="form-group">
                <label for="exampleDisabled" class="disabled">Disabled input</label>
                <input type="text" id="exampleDisabled" class="form-control" placeholder="Disabled input" disabled>
