The React 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. It is available in an HTML5/CSS version and a JavaScript version.

React TextBox

The React TextBox 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.


The simple TextBox component 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 React TextBox component. For example, you can prepend text with a dollar symbol ($) for price input, or prepend an at sign (@) for user names.

Floating label (placeholder text)

The React TextBox component 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.

Input sizing

The React TextBox component 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 React TextBox component can validate the input value and apply the corresponding validation styles for success, error, and warning states, which are used in most standard HTML forms.

Multiline TextBox

The React TextBox component capable to handle multiple lines of text with floating label that helps you to accept address, description, comments, feedback, and more.

Get and set textbox value

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

Right-to-left (RTL) rendering

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


The React TextBox component 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.
