React Input Component

Basic example

Use the MUI <Input> component to use MUI styling for text input elements.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import Input from 'muicss/lib/react/input';

class Example extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <Input hint="Input 1" />
        <Input hint="Input 2" defaultValue="Value on load" />
      </div>
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<Example />, document.getElementById('example'));

Fixed labels

Use the label attribute to add a fixed label.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import Input from 'muicss/lib/react/input';

class Example extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <Input label="Input 1" />
        <Input label="Input 2" defaultValue="Value on load" />
      </div>
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<Example />, document.getElementById('example'));

Floating labels

Use floatingLabel={true} to float labels.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import Input from 'muicss/lib/react/input';

class Example extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <Input label="Input 1" floatingLabel={true} />
        <Input label="Input 2" floatingLabel={true} defaultValue="Value on load" />
      </div>
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<Example />, document.getElementById('example'));

Controlled components

To use <Input> as a controlled component you can use the onChange handler to detect DOM changes and the value property to update the component's value.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import Input from 'muicss/lib/react/input';

class Example extends React.Component {
  state = {
    value: "Value on load"
  };

  onChange(ev) {
    this.setState({value: ev.target.value});
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <Input
        value={this.state.value}
        onChange={this.onChange.bind(this)}
      />
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<Example />, document.getElementById('example'));

Uncontrolled components

To use <Input> as an uncontrolled component you can use the controlEl attribute to access the instance's inner DOM control element.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import Button from 'muicss/lib/react/button';
import Input from 'muicss/lib/react/input';


class Example extends React.Component {
  onSubmit(ev) {
    ev.preventDefault();  // prevent form submission
    alert(this.input.controlEl.value);
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <form onSubmit={this.onSubmit.bind(this)}>
        <Input ref={el => { this.input = el; }} defaultValue="Value on load" />
        <Button variant="raised">Get value</Button>
      </form>
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<Example />, document.getElementById('example'));
