Bootstrap Form Inputs (more)


Static Control

If you need to insert plain text next to a form label within a horizontal form, use the .form-control-static class on a <p> element:

Example

<form class="form-horizontal">
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="control-label col-sm-2">Email:</label>
    <div class="col-sm-10">
      <p class="form-control-static">someone@example.com</p>
    </div>
  </div>
</form>

Bootstrap Input Groups

The .input-group class is a container to enhance an input by adding an icon, text or a button in front or behind it as a "help text".

The .input-group-addon class attaches an icon or help text next to the input field.


Text

Example

<form>
  <div class="input-group">
    <span class="input-group-addon"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-user"></i></span>
    <input id="email" type="email" class="form-control" name="email" placeholder="Email">
  </div>
  <div class="input-group">
    <span class="input-group-addon"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-lock"></i></span>
    <input id="password" type="password" class="form-control" name="password" placeholder="Password">
  </div>
  <div class="input-group">
    <span class="input-group-addon">Text</span>
    <input id="msg" type="text" class="form-control" name="msg" placeholder="Additional Info">
  </div>
</form>

The .input-group-btn attaches a button next to an input. This is often used together with a search bar:

Example

<form>
  <div class="input-group">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Search">
    <div class="input-group-btn">
      <button class="btn btn-default" type="submit">
        <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-search"></i>
      </button>
    </div>
  </div>
</form>

Bootstrap Form Control States

  • INPUT FOCUS - The outline of the input is removed and a box-shadow is applied on focus
  • DISABLED INPUTS - Add a disabled attribute to disable an input field
  • DISABLED FIELDSETS - Add a disabled attribute to a fieldset to disable all controls within
  • READONLY INPUTS - Add a readonly attribute to an input to prevent user input
  • VALIDATION STATES - Bootstrap includes validation styles for error, warning, and success messages. To use, add .has-warning, .has-error, or .has-success to the parent element
  • ICONS - You can add feedback icons with the .has-feedback class and an icon
  • HIDDEN LABELS - Add a .sr-only class on non-visible labels

The following example demonstrates some of the form control states above in a Horizontal form:

Example

<form class="form-horizontal">
  <div class="form-group">
    <label class="col-sm-2 control-label">Focused</label>
    <div class="col-sm-10">
      <input class="form-control" id="focusedInput" type="text" value="Click to focus">
    </div>
  </div>
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="disabledInput" class="col-sm-2 control-label">Disabled</label>
    <div class="col-sm-10">
      <input class="form-control" id="disabledInput" type="text" disabled>
    </div>
  </div>
  <fieldset disabled>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="disabledTextInput" class="col-sm-2 control-label">Fieldset disabled</label>
      <div class="col-sm-10">
        <input type="text" id="disabledTextInput" class="form-control">
      </div>
    </div>
    <div class="form-group">
      <label for="disabledSelect" class="col-sm-2 control-label"></label>

        </select>
