public string InputId { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A unique identifier.


The InputId property value is assigned to the id attribute of the editor’s input element. The id is case-sensitive, should contain at least one character, and should not contain whitespaces (spaces, tabs, etc.)

When you create a Form Layout component and add a editor to a layout item’s template, use the InputId property to associate the editor with the layout item’s caption.

  • Specify the layout item’s Caption property. A browser renders the caption as an HTML label element.
  • Set the layout item’s CaptionFor property to a unique value. This value is assigned to the label’s for attribute.
  • Set the editor’s InputId property to the same value as the item’s CaptionFor.


If you do not specify the CaptionFor property, the Form Layout generates a random identifier (GUID) and assigns it to the label’s for attribute and to the id property of the first input element in the template.

    <DxFormLayoutItem Caption="Phone number:" CaptionFor="masked_input">
            <DxMaskedInput Value="Value"
                           Mask="(999) 000-00-00"
                           InputId="masked_input" />

    string Value { get; set; }

You can click the associated label to focus the component.
