Input

Also known as

Text Field, Text Box

Input provides an editable field where users can enter text and numeric values. It works best for short, freeform content and data entry.

To avoid misleading users, set the width to correlate to the length of the answer you’re expecting. For example, an input for a three-digit value shouldn't be wide enough to accommodate a sentence worth of characters. See forms pattern for more information on layout.

To ask a user a subjective question to which user responses will vary and the length of their answer is likely to be less than a single line.

When the content is likely to exceed a single line. Instead, use MultilineInput. Input field width and height should always reflect the amount of content expected in the field.
