Hi, this is a part of MDB Expansion project where we've added a lot of additional components which aren't elements of MDB foundations. Look here, you will see more possibilities: . There might be some bugs in our documentation now because we're updating one. Best, Marta

Hi, maybe you need this: HTML:
<div class="input-group md-form form-sm form-3 pl-0">
    <span class="input-group-addon amber lighten-3 black-text" id="basic-addon9">@</span>
    <input type="text" class="form-control mt-0 amber-border" placeholder="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addon9">
CSS: input {
    border: 1px solid #bdbdbd;
    border-top-right-radius: 0.25rem;
    border-bottom-right-radius: 0.25rem;
} input[type=text]:focus:not([readonly]).amber-border  {
    border: 1px solid #ffca28;
    box-shadow: none;
Best, Marta

So it is not a part of MDB bootstrap? Do I have to add it to my custom style css file?

einar pro commented 6 years ago

I have tried it out and it is as expected now. But it would have saved some time for a beginner to mention that this was not a part of the standard mdb bootstrap css. Anyway - thanks.
