Platform: Blazor| Category : General, Forms and validation

The DisplayName property, which is set for built-in form components, help maintain an alternate name. When the component’s input value is incorrect due to form validation, this alternate name is displayed in the error message.

The DisplayName property is supported by the following built-in components.

  • InputCheckbox
  • InputDate
  • InputNumber
  • InputRadioGroup
  • InputSelect
  • InputText
  • InputTextArea

Please refer to the code example below.
