InputField / React

Also known as textbox

An input field is a common form element when you ask users to fill some text information.

To implement InputField component into your project you’ll need to add the import:

import InputField from "@kiwicom/orbit-components/lib/InputField";

After adding import into your project you can use it simply like:

<InputField />

Functional specs

  • The error prop overwrites the help prop, due to higher priority.

  • The color of the label will turn into cloud shade when the InputField has some filled value.

  • You can use string for currency InputField, or React.Node for InputField with icon.

  • If you want to use ButtonLink as suffix for the InputField, use transparent prop for the ButtonLink, e.g.:

  placeholder="My placeholder"
    <ButtonLink transparent icon={<Visibility />} />
  • Usage of Tag in InputField
import Tag from "@kiwicom/orbit-components/lib/Tag";

  placeholder="My placeholder"
  • ref can be used for example auto-focus the elements immediately after render.
class Component extends React.PureComponent<Props> {

  componentDidMount() {
    this.ref.current && this.ref.current.focus();

  ref: { current: React$ElementRef<*> | null } = React.createRef();

  render() {
    return (
      <InputField ref={this.ref} />


  • For special cases you can use your own, detached label. Simply like this:
<label for="NICEID">Content</label>
