The JavaScript TextBox (text field) is a control for editing, displaying, or entering plain text on forms to retrieve user names, phone numbers, email addresses, 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 HTML5/CSS and JavaScript versions.

JavaScript TextBox

The JavaScript 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 simple HTML5 TextBox control renders using pure CSS and HTML. It supports all the essential features, such as input groups with icons, floating labels, multiline text, different sizing, validation states, and more.

Input group

Easily create input groups by prepending or appending icons, buttons, or text with floating labels in the JS Text Box control. For example, you can prepend text with a dollar symbol ($) for price input or prepend at sign (@) for user names.

Floating label (placeholder text)

The JavaScript TextBox control floats 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

The HTML5 TextBox control has built-in sizing support (normal and small modes) to fit the input box’s size with sufficient padding and spacing.

Input validation with HTML forms

The Text Box in JS validates the input value and applies corresponding validation styles for success, error, and warning states, which are used in most standard HTML forms.

Multiline TextBox

The HTML5 TextBox control is capable of handling multiple lines of text with floating labels that help you to enter address, description, comments, feedback, and more.

Get and set text box value

Easily set or retrieve the value in the JavaScript Text Box control to process it. Enable the clear button to allow users to reset the input value.

Right-to-left (RTL) rendering

The JavaScript TextBox control supports right-to-left (RTL) rendering. Users can change the text direction and layout from right to left. This improves user experience and accessibility for users of RTL languages.


The JavaScript Text Box control has several built-in themes such as Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), Tailwind CSS, 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.

Developer-friendly APIs

Developers can control the appearance and behaviors of the Text Box in JavaScript, including its floating label, using a rich set of APIs.

Other supported frameworks

The TextBox component is also available in Blazor, React, Angular, and Vue frameworks. Check out the different TextBox platforms from the links below,
