InputFile / React

Also known as Upload

Enables users to upload a file to complete a form.

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

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

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

<InputFile />

Functional specs

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

  • If you pass some string into placeholder it will be used as its placeholder.

  • If you pass some string into buttonLabel it will be used for button content.

  • 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 <InputFile ref={this.ref} />;
