InputText is an extension to standard input element with theming.

import InputText from 'primevue/inputtext';

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

<InputText type="text" v-model="value" />

Icons can be placed inside an input element by wrapping both the input and the icon with an element that has either .p-input-icon-left or .p-input-icon-right class.

<span class="p-input-icon-left">
    <i class="pi pi-search" />
    <InputText v-model="value1" placeholder="Search" />

<span class="p-input-icon-right">
    <i class="pi pi-spin pi-spinner" />
    <InputText v-model="value2" />

InputText provides small and large sizes as alternatives to the standard.

<InputText v-model="value1" type="text" size="small" placeholder="Small" />
<InputText v-model="value2" type="text" placeholder="Normal" />
<InputText v-model="value3" type="text" size="large" placeholder="Large" />

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

Enter your username to reset your password.

<div class="flex flex-column gap-2">
    <label for="username">Username</label>
    <InputText id="username" v-model="value" aria-describedby="username-help" />
    <small id="username-help">Enter your username to reset your password.</small>

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

<span class="p-float-label">
    <InputText id="username" v-model="value" />
    <label for="username">Username</label>

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

<InputText v-model="value" class="p-invalid" />

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

<InputText v-model="value" disabled placeholder="Disabled" />
