Text Box

  • 2 minutes to read

Bootstrap Controls for ASP.NET Core are in maintenance mode. We don’t add new controls or develop new functionality for this product line. Our recommendation is to use the ASP.NET Core Controls suite.

The Bootstrap Text Box is a single-line text editor.


Bootstrap Text Box offers the following features:

  • Data-Bound Mode

    The Bootstrap Text Box control can be bound to data using standard data-binding expressions. Editors can be bound to specific data field values and submit data changes made within the editor back to the database.

  • Null Prompt Text

    The prompt text can be displayed if the editor’s value is null and the editor is not focused. The prompt text disappears when the editor receives focus. You can define the prompt text using the BootstrapTextBox.NullTextStyle method.

  • Masked Input

    The Bootstrap Text Box editor allows you to use masks during editing. Masks are useful when a string entered by an end-user into an editor should match a specific format. Additionally, a specific mask hint can be displayed for some mask types, informing end-users about allowed input values. You can customize mask settings using the BootstrapTextBoxBuilder.MaskSettings method.

  • Display Formatting

    You can format display values using the BootstrapTextBoxBuilder.DisplayFormatString method.

  • Built-in Validation

    The Bootstrap Text Box control allows you to perform data validation both on the client and server side.

  • Full-Featured Client-Side API

    Bootstrap Text Box provides you with a comprehensive client-side API. This API is implemented using JavaScript and is exposed via the BootstrapTextBox object. The BootstrapTextBox object serves as a client-side equivalent of the Bootstrap Text Box control.
