Input

Base component to create custom inputs
Import

Usage

Input component is used as base for all other inputs (Select, TextInput, Textarea and others). The single purpose of Input is to provide shared styles and features to other inputs. Use other components listed above to build forms (as they provide better accessibility) and Input component as base for your own custom inputs with Mantine theme.

Variant
Radius
Size
<Input
icon={<MailIcon />}
placeholder="Your email"
/>

Variants

Input has 3 variants, all of which are available on all Mantine inputs. Note that unstyled input variant may significantly impact usability, use it wisely.

<Input variant="default" placeholder="Default variant" />
<Input variant="filled" placeholder="Filled variant" />
<Input variant="unstyled" placeholder="Unstyled variant" />

Icon and right section

You can add icon on the left side of the input, for example:

new
<Input
icon={<TwitterLogoIcon />}
placeholder="Your twitter"
rightSection={rightSection}
rightSectionWidth={70}
styles={{ rightSection: { pointerEvents: 'none' } }}
/>

Right section allows you to place anything on the right side of the input. For example, in PasswordInput component right section is used for show/hide password toggle:

Or you can add keyboard shortcut like in search on Mantine docs website:

Ctrl+K
import React from 'react';
import { Kbd, TextInput } from '@mantine/core';
import { MagnifyingGlassIcon } from '@modulz/radix-icons';
function Demo() {
const rightSection = (
<div style={{ display: 'flex', alignItems: 'center' }}>
<Kbd>Ctrl</Kbd>
<span style={{ margin: '0 5px' }}>+</span>
<Kbd>K</Kbd>
</div>
);
return (
<TextInput
placeholder="Search"
icon={<MagnifyingGlassIcon />}
rightSectionWidth={90}
rightSection={rightSection}
styles={{ rightSection: { pointerEvents: 'none' } }}
/>
);
}

Right section with Tooltip:

import React from 'react';
import { Input, Tooltip } from '@mantine/core';
import { InfoCircledIcon } from '@modulz/radix-icons';
function Demo() {
const rightSection = (
<Tooltip
label="We do not send spam"
position="top"
placement="end"
withArrow
>
<InfoCircledIcon />
</Tooltip>
);
return <Input placeholder="Your email" rightSection={rightSection} />;
}

Sizes

Component has 5 premade sizes: xs, sm, md, lg, xl, use size prop to control input height, padding and font-size:

<Input size="xl" placeholder="xl input size" />

You can get predefined input heights by importing INPUT_SIZES:

import { INPUT_SIZES } from '@mantine/core';
SizeInput height
xs30px
sm36px
md42px
lg50px
xl60px

Custom component

As Input component is intended to be a base for all other inputs, you can pass component prop which will define root element:

<Input component="button">Button input</Input>
<Input component="select" rightSection={<ChevronDownIcon />}>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
</Input>

Headless variant

If you want to add your own styles to input it's better to start from scratch rather than overriding Mantine styles, use special headless variant which does not include any Mantine styles but still supports all other features: icon, right section, etc.:

$
<Input
variant="headless"
placeholder="Add your own styles with styles API"
icon={<TwitterLogoIcon />}
rightSection="$"
styles={{
input: {
width: '100%',
boxSizing: 'border-box',
}
}}
/>

Get element ref

You can get input ref by passing elementRef prop to Input component:

import { useRef } from 'react';
import { Input } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
const ref = useRef(null);
return <Input elementRef={ref} />;
}

TypeScript

You need to pass additional types to use custom component with TypeScript in case you need full type coverage for events and elementRef:

<Input<'button', HTMLButtonElement>
component="button"
onClick={(event) => console.log(event)}
elementRef={(node) => {
window.myRef = node;
}}
/>
<Input<typeof YourTextarea, HTMLTextareaElement>
component={YourTextarea}
onClick={(event) => console.log(event)}
elementRef={(node) => {
window.myRef = node;
}}
/>
