Form controls

Give textual form controls like <input>s and <textarea>s an upgrade with custom styles, sizing, focus states, and more.

Example

                    
                      <div class="mb-3">
                        <label for="exampleFormControlInput1" class="form-label">Email address</label>
                        <input type="email" class="form-control" id="exampleFormControlInput1" placeholder="[email protected]">
                      </div>
                      <div class="mb-3">
                        <label for="exampleFormControlTextarea1" class="form-label">Example textarea</label>
                        <textarea class="form-control" id="exampleFormControlTextarea1" rows="3"></textarea>
                      </div>
                    
                  

Sizing

Set heights using classes like .form-control-xl, .form-control-lg and .form-control-sm.

                    
                      <input class="form-control form-control-xl mb-3" type="text" placeholder=".form-control-xl" aria-label=".form-control-xl example">
                      <input class="form-control form-control-lg border-primary" type="text" placeholder=".form-control-lg" aria-label=".form-control-lg example">
                      <input class="form-control border-success" type="text" placeholder="Default input" aria-label="deafult input example">
                      <input class="form-control form-control-sm border-danger" type="text" placeholder=".form-control-sm" aria-label=".form-control-sm example">
                    
                  

Disabled

Add the disabled boolean attribute on an input to give it a grayed out appearance and remove pointer events.

                    
                      <input class="form-control" type="text" placeholder="Disabled input" aria-label="Disabled input example" disabled>
                      <input class="form-control" type="text" placeholder="Disabled readonly input" aria-label="Disabled input example" disabled readonly>
                    
                  

Readonly

Add the readonly boolean attribute on an input to prevent modification of the input’s value. Read-only inputs appear lighter (just like disabled inputs), but retain the standard cursor.

                    
                      <input class="form-control" type="text" placeholder="Readonly input here..." aria-label="readonly input example" readonly>
                    
                  

Readonly plain text

If you want to have <input readonly> elements in your form styled as plain text, use the .form-control-plaintext class to remove the default form field styling and preserve the correct margin and padding.

                    
                      <div class="bd-example">
                        <div class="mb-3 row">
                          <label for="staticEmail" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">Email</label>
                          <div class="col-sm-10">
                            <input type="text" readonly="" class="form-control-plaintext" id="staticEmail" value="[email protected]">
                          </div>
                        </div>
                        <div class="mb-3 row">
                          <label for="inputPassword" class="col-sm-2 col-form-label">Password</label>
                          <div class="col-sm-10">
                            <input type="password" class="form-control" id="inputPassword">
                          </div>
                        </div>
                      </div>
                    
                  
                    
                      <form class="row g-3">
                        <div class="col-auto">
                          <label for="staticEmail2" class="sr-only">Email</label>
                          <input type="text" readonly class="form-control-plaintext" id="staticEmail2" value="[email protected]">
                        </div>
                        <div class="col-auto">
                          <label for="inputPassword2" class="sr-only">Password</label>
                          <input type="password" class="form-control" id="inputPassword2" placeholder="Password">
                        </div>
                        <div class="col-auto">
                          <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary mb-3">Confirm identity</button>
                        </div>
                      </form>

Datalists

Datalists allow you to create a group of <option>s that can be accessed (and autocompleted) from within an <input>. These are similar to <select> elements, but come with more menu styling limitations and differences. While most browsers and operating systems include some support for <datalist> elements, their styling is inconsistent at best.

                      <input class="form-control" list="datalistOptions" id="exampleDataList" placeholder="Type to search...">
