InputMask component is used to enter input in a certain format such as numeric, date, currency, email and phone.

import InputMask from 'primevue/inputmask';

InputMask is used as a controlled input with v-model properties.

<InputMask id="basic" v-model="value" mask="99-999999" placeholder="99-999999" />

Mask format can be a combination of the following definitions; a for alphabetic characters, 9 for numeric characters and * for alphanumberic characters. In addition, formatting characters like (, ) , - are also accepted.

<div class="flex-auto">
    <label for="ssn" class="font-bold block mb-2">SSN</label>
    <InputMask id="ssn" v-model="value1" mask="999-99-9999" placeholder="999-99-9999" />

<div class="flex-auto">
    <label for="phone" class="font-bold block mb-2">Phone</label>
    <InputMask id="phone" v-model="value2" mask="(999) 999-9999" placeholder="(999) 999-9999" />

<div class="flex-auto">
    <label for="serial" class="font-bold block mb-2">Serial</label>
    <InputMask id="serial" v-model="value3" mask="a*-999-a999" placeholder="a*-999-a999" />

When the input does not complete the mask definition, it is cleared by default. Use autoClear property to control this behavior. In addition, ? is used to mark anything after the question mark optional.

<InputMask v-model="value" mask="(999) 999-9999? x99999" placeholder="(999) 999-9999? x99999" />

Default placeholder for a mask is underscore that can be customized using slotChar property.

<InputMask id="basic" v-model="value" placeholder="99/99/9999" mask="99/99/9999" slotChar="mm/dd/yyyy" />

A floating label appears on top of the input field when focused.

<span class="p-float-label">
    <InputMask id="ssn" v-model="value" mask="999-99-9999" placeholder="999-99-9999" />
    <label for="ssn">SSN</label>

Invalid state style is added using the p-invalid class to indicate a failed validation.

<InputMask v-model="value" mask="99-999999" placeholder="99-999999" class="p-invalid"/>

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

<InputMask mask="99-999999" placeholder="99-999999" disabled />
