Inplace can be used within a form to display a value as read only before making it editable. The closable property adds a close button next to the content to switch back to read only mode.

Click to Edit

 <Inplace closable>
    <InplaceDisplay>{text || 'Click to Edit'}</InplaceDisplay>
    <InplaceContent>
        <InputText value={text} onChange={(e) => setText(e.target.value)} autoFocus />
    </InplaceContent>
</Inplace>
         

Any content such as an image can be placed inside an Inplace.

    </InplaceDisplay>
    <InplaceContent>
        <img alt="Nature" src="/images/nature/nature1.jpg" />
