The Angular TextBox (text field) is a component for editing, displaying, or entering plain text on forms to capture user names, phone numbers, email, and more. This component is an extended version of the HTML5 TextBox (input type text) component with icons, floating labels, different sizing, grouping, validation states, and more features. It is available in HTML5/CSS version and JavaScript version.

Angular TextBox

This component provides a floating label with minimal configuration. It supports most of the features that are available in the pure HTML5/CSS version of the TextBox component.


Render a simple text box using pure CSS and HTML. The component supports all the essential features, such as input groups with icons, floating labels, multiline text, different sizing, and validation states.

Input group

Easily create input groups by prepending or appending icons, buttons, or text with floating labels in the TextBox component. For example, you can prepend text with a dollar symbol ($) for price input or an at sign (@) for usernames.

Floating label (placeholder text)

Float placeholder text at the top of the input box with an animation when the input receives focus or has a value. The floating label ensures that the input value and label are always visible.

Input sizing

TextBox has built-in sizing support (normal and small modes) to fit the input box’s size with sufficient padding and spacing.

Input validation with Angular forms

The TextBox component works seamlessly with Angular template-driven forms, reactive forms, and native HTML forms. It also supports applying corresponding validation styles for success, error, and warning states.

Multiline TextBox

The TextBox component is capable of handling multiple lines of text with floating labels to help you accept addresses, descriptions, comments, feedback, and more.

Get and set text box value

Easily set or retrieve a value in the Angular TextBox component to process it and enable a clear button to allow users reset the input value.

Right-to-left (RTL) rendering

The Angular TextBox supports right-to-left (RTL) rendering. Users can change the text direction and layout of the TextBox to be right to left. This improves the user experience and accessibility for those working with RTL languages.


The Angular TextBox component has several built-in themes: Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), Tailwind CSS, and high contrast. Users can customize these built-in themes or create new themes either by overriding Sass variables or using our Theme Studio application.

Developer-friendly APIs

Developers can control the appearance and behaviors of the Angular TextBox component, including its floating label, using a rich set of APIs.
