Form elements

Input Types

Most common form control, text-based input fields. Includes support for all HTML5 types: text, password, datetime, datetime-local, date, month, time, week, number, email, url, search, tel, and color.

email@example.com

A block of help text that breaks onto a new line and may extend beyond one line.
Multiple select

Input States

Bootstrap includes validation styles for error, warning, and success states on form controls.

Input Sizes

Set heights using classes like .input-lg, and set widths using grid column classes like .col-lg-*.

Input groups

Extend form controls by adding text or buttons before, after, or on both sides of any text-based <input>. Use .input-group with an .input-group-addon or .input-group-btn to prepend or append elements to a single .form-control.

Basic example

Individual form controls automatically receive some global styling. All textual <input>, <textarea>, and <select> elements with .form-control are set to width: 100%; by default. Wrap labels and controls in .form-group for optimum spacing.

Horizontal form

Use Bootstrap's predefined grid classes to align labels and groups of form controls in a horizontal layout by adding .form-horizontal to the form (which doesn't have to be a <form>). Doing so changes .form-groups to behave as grid rows, so no need for .row.

Inline Form

Add .form-inline to your form (which doesn't have to be a <form>) for left-aligned and inline-block controls. This only applies to forms within viewports that are at least 768px wide.
