function Demo() {
return (
<>
<Text fz="xs">Extra small text</Text>
<Text fz="sm">Small text</Text>
<Text fz="md">Default text</Text>
<Text fz="lg">Large text</Text>
<Text fz="xl">Extra large text</Text>
<Text fw={500}>Semibold</Text>
<Text fw={700}>Bold</Text>
<Text fs="italic">Italic</Text>
<Text td="underline">Underlined</Text>
<Text td="line-through">Strikethrough</Text>
<Text c="dimmed">Dimmed text</Text>
<Text c="blue">Blue text</Text>
<Text c="teal.4">Teal 4 text</Text>
<Text tt="uppercase">Uppercase</Text>
<Text tt="capitalize">capitalized text</Text>
<Text ta="center">Aligned to center</Text>
<Text ta="right">Aligned to right</Text>
</>
);
}

Gradient variant

To use gradient as Text color:

  • set variant to gradient
  • set gradient to { from: 'color-from', to: 'color-to', deg: 135 }, where
    • color-from and color-to are color from theme.colors
    • deg is linear gradient deg
Indigo cyan gradient
import { Text } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Text
variant="gradient"
gradient={{ from: 'indigo', to: 'cyan', deg: 45 }}
sx={{ fontFamily: 'Greycliff CF, sans-serif' }}
ta="center"
fz="xl"
fw={700}
>
Indigo cyan gradient
</Text>
);
}

Line clamp

Specify maximum amount of lines with lineClamp prop. This option uses -webkit-line-clamp CSS property (caniuse). Note that padding-bottom cannot be set on text element:

From Bulbapedia: Bulbasaur is a small, quadrupedal Pokémon that has blue-green skin with darker patches. It has red eyes with white pupils, pointed, ear-like structures on top of its head, and a short, blunt snout with a wide mouth. A pair of small, pointed teeth are visible in the upper jaw when its mouth is open. Each of its thick legs ends with three sharp claws. On Bulbasaur's back is a green plant bulb, which is grown from a seed planted there at birth. The bulb also conceals two slender, tentacle-like vines and provides it with energy through photosynthesis as well as from the nutrient-rich seeds contained within.

import { Text } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Text lineClamp={4}>
{/* Text content */}
</Text>
);
}

Line clamp can also be used with any children (not only strings), for example with TypographyStylesProvider:

Line clamp with TypographyStylesProvider

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Nesciunt nulla quam aut sed corporis voluptates praesentium inventore, sapiente ex tempore sit consequatur debitis non! Illo cum ipsa reiciendis quidem facere, deserunt eos totam impedit. Vel ab, ipsum veniam aperiam odit molestiae incidunt minus, sint eos iusto earum quaerat vitae perspiciatis.

import { TypographyStylesProvider, Text } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Text lineClamp={3}>
<TypographyStylesProvider>
<h3>Line clamp with TypographyStylesProvider</h3>
<p>
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Nesciunt nulla quam aut sed
corporis voluptates praesentium inventore, sapiente ex tempore sit consequatur debitis
non! Illo cum ipsa reiciendis quidem facere, deserunt eos totam impedit. Vel ab, ipsum
veniam aperiam odit molestiae incidunt minus, sint eos iusto earum quaerat vitae
perspiciatis.
</p>
</TypographyStylesProvider>
</Text>
);
}

Inherit styles

Text always applies font-size, font-family and line-height styles, but in some cases this is not a desired behavior. To force Text to inherit parent styles set inherit prop. For example, highlight part of Title:

Title in which you want to highlight something

import { Text, Title } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return <Title order={3}>Title in which you want to <Text span c="blue" inherit>highlight</Text> something</Title>;
}

Polymorphic component

Text is a polymorphic component, you can change root element:

import { Text } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Text component="a" href="https://mantine.dev/core/">
Anchor element
</Text>
);
}

span prop

Use span prop as a shorthand for component="span":

import { Text } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<>
<Text span>Same as below</Text>
<Text component="span">Same as above</Text>
</>
);
}
