Input

The input component offers an easy way to set up any type of input field for your forms. By simply setting its name attribute it also automatically defines your id and makes sure old values are respected.

Installation

The input component comes ready out-of-the-box with Blade UI Kit. Simply install the package and you're good to go.

Basic Usage

The most basic usage of the component is to set its name attribute:

<x-input name="search" />

This will output the following HTML:

<input name="search" type="text" id="search" />

By default a text type will be set for the input field as well as an id that allows it to be easily referenced by a label element.

Of course, you can also specifically set a type and overwrite the id attribute:

<x-input name="confirm_password" id="confirmPassword" type="password" class="p-4" />

This will output the following HTML:

<input name="confirm_password" type="password" id="confirmPassword" class="p-4" />

Old Values

The input component also supports old values that were set. For example, you might want to apply some validation in the backend, but also make sure the user doesn't lose their input data when you re-render the form with any validation errors. When re-rendering the form, the input component will remember the old value:

<input name="search" type="text" id="search" value="Eloquent" />
