InputText is an extension to standard input element with theming and keyfiltering.

import { InputText } from 'primereact/inputtext';

InputText is used as a controlled input with value and onChange properties.

<InputText value={value} onChange={(e) => setValue(} />

InputText has built-in key filtering support to block certain keys, refer to keyfilter page for more information.

<InputText keyfilter="int" placeholder="Integers" />

Apply .p-inputtext-sm to reduce the size of the input element or .p-inputtext-lg to enlarge it.

<InputText type="text" className="p-inputtext-sm" placeholder="Small" />
<InputText type="text" placeholder="Normal" />
<InputText type="text" className="p-inputtext-lg" placeholder="Large" />

An advisory text can be defined with the semantic small tag.

Enter your username to reset your password.

<div className="flex flex-column gap-2">
    <label htmlFor="username">Username</label>
    <InputText id="username" aria-describedby="username-help" />
    <small id="username-help">
        Enter your username to reset your password.

A floating label appears on top of the input field when focused. Visit FloatLabel documentation for more information.

    <InputText id="username" value={value} onChange={(e) => setValue(} />
    <label htmlFor="username">Username</label>

Specify the variant property as filled to display the component with a higher visual emphasis than the default outlined style.

<InputText variant="filled" value={value} onChange={(e) => setValue(} />

Invalid state is displayed using the invalid prop to indicate a failed validation. You can use this style when integrating with form validation libraries.

<InputText invalid />

When disabled is present, the element cannot be edited and focused.

<InputText disabled placeholder="Disabled" />
