The ASP.NET MVC TextBox (text field) control is most useful for editing, displaying, or entering plain text on forms to capture user names, phone numbers, email, and more. This control is an extended version of the HTML5 TextBox (input type text) control with icons, floating labels, different sizing, grouping, validation states, and more. It is available in an HTML5/CSS version and an ASP.NET MVC version.
The ASP.NET MVC TextBox control 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 control.
The ASP.NET MVC TextBox control floats placeholder text to the top of the input box with an animation when the input receives focus, or the input has a value. The floating label is used to ensure the input value and label are always visible.
The TextBox control has built-in sizing support (normal and small modes) to fit the input box’s size with sufficient padding and spacing.
The TextBox control allows multiline input, making it capable of handling multiple lines of text with floating label support.
Easily set or retrieve the value in the ASP.NET MVC TextBox control to process it, and enable a clear button to allow users to reset the input value.
The ASP.NET MVC TextBox control supports right-to-left (RTL) rendering. Users can change the text direction and layout of the TextBox control from right to left. This improves the user experience and accessibility for users who use RTL languages.
The ASP.NET MVC TextBox control has several built-in themes such as Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), and high contrast. Users can customize any of these built-in themes or create new themes either by overriding Sass variables or using our Theme Studio application.
Developers can control the appearance and behaviors of the ASP.NET MVC TextBox control, including its floating label, using a rich set of APIs.
