Input is a component that allows users to enter text. It can be used to get user inputs in forms, search fields, and more.

The above command is for individual installation only. You may skip this step if @nextui-org/react is already installed globally.




Read Only


If you pass the isRequired property to the input, it will have a danger asterisk at the end of the label and the input will be required.





Label Placements

You can change the position of the label by setting the labelPlacement property to inside, outside or outside-left.

Note: If the label is not passed, the labelPlacement property will be outside by default.

Password Input

You can use the type property to change the input type to password.

Clear Button

If you pass the isClearable property to the input, it will have a clear button at the end of the input, it will be visible when the input has a value.

Start & End Content

You can use the startContent and endContent properties to add content to the start and end of the input.

With Description

You can add a description to the input by passing the description property.

With Error Message

You can combine the isInvalid and errorMessage properties to show an invalid input. errorMessage is only shown when isInvalid is set to true.

Example with regex email validation:


You can use the value and onValueChange properties to control the input value.

Note: NextUI Input also supports native events like onChange, useful for form libraries such as Formik and React Hook Form.
