InputBase API

The API documentation of the InputBase React component. Learn more about the properties and the CSS customization points.

import InputBase from '@material-ui/core/InputBase';

InputBase contains as few styles as possible. It aims to be a simple building block for creating an input. It contains a load of style reset and some state logic.

Props

The ref is forwarded to the root element.
