Specifies a unique identifier (ID) of the text editor’s input element.

Namespace: DevExpress.Blazor.Base

Assembly: DevExpress.Blazor.v21.1.dll


public string InputId { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A unique identifier.


The InputId property value is assigned to the id attribute of the text 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 text editor to a layout item’s template, use the InputId property to associate the text 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="Contact Name:" CaptionFor="text_box">
            <DxTextBox @bind-Text="@Name" InputId="text_box"></DxTextBox>

@code {
    string Name { get; set; } = "Nancy Davolio";
    // ...

You can click the associated label to focus/activate the text input.
