Input group

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. We do not support multiple form-controls in a single input group and <label>s must come outside the input group.

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon1">@</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username" aria-label="Username" aria-describedby="basic-addon1">
</div>

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Recipient's username" aria-label="Recipient's username" aria-describedby="basic-addon2">
  <div class="input-group-append">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon2">@example.com</span>
  </div>
</div>

<label for="basic-url">Your vanity URL</label>
<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="basic-addon3">https://example.com/users/</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" id="basic-url" aria-describedby="basic-addon3">
</div>

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text">$</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)">
  <div class="input-group-append">
    <span class="input-group-text">.00</span>
  </div>
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text">With textarea</span>
  </div>
  <textarea class="form-control" aria-label="With textarea"></textarea>
</div>

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.

<div class="input-group input-group-sm mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="inputGroup-sizing-sm">Small</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Small" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-sm">
</div>

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="inputGroup-sizing-default">Default</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Default" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-default">
</div>

<div class="input-group input-group-lg">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="inputGroup-sizing-lg">Large</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Large" aria-describedby="inputGroup-sizing-sm">
</div>

Checkboxes and radios

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

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <div class="input-group-text">
      <input type="checkbox" aria-label="Checkbox for following text input">
    </div>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Text input with checkbox">
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <div class="input-group-text">
    <input type="radio" aria-label="Radio button for following text input">
    </div>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Text input with radio button">
</div>

Multiple inputs

While multiple <input>s are supported visually, validation styles are only available for input groups with a single <input>.

<div class="input-group">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text" id="">First and last name</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control">
  <input type="text" class="form-control">
</div>

Multiple addons

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

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <div class="input-group-prepend">
    <span class="input-group-text">$</span>
    <span class="input-group-text">0.00</span>
  </div>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)">
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <input type="text" class="form-control" aria-label="Amount (to the nearest dollar)">
  <div class="input-group-append">
    <span class="input-group-text">$</span>
    <span class="input-group-text">0.00</span>
  </div>
</div>

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.
