Underline input New

Underline input variant.

Floating label New

A placeholder is required on each <input> as our method uses the :placeholder-shown pseudo-element. Also note that the <input> must come first so we can utilize a sibling selector (e.g., ~).

When there’s a value already defined, <label>s will automatically adjust to their floated position.


Inputs stacked small to large sizes.

Pilled input

Use the .rounded-full utility class to make inputs circular.


Add the readonly boolean attribute on an input to prevent modification of the input’s value.


Add the disabled boolean attribute on an input to remove pointer events, and prevent focusing.
