How to Use

  • Put basic HTML markup:
<form class="your-class">
  .... your inputs and textareas and your submit button (use only <button> tag for it)
  • Use placeholder attribute and id attribute for inputs and textareas. Also you can use input with type="submit" as a button
<form class="your-class">
    <input id="your-id-1" type="text" placeholder="My Input" />
    <textarea id="your-id-2" placeholder="My Textarea"></textarea>
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>
  • Customize your button with data-attributes:

    • use data-size attribute to customize a button size (by default it's middle):

      • data-size="sm" - a small button
      • data-size="md" - a middle button
      • data-size="bg" - a big button
    • use data-filled="filled" attribute to create a filled button (it's of 'empty' style by default)

    • use data-direction attribute to add an effect direction (Only for #2 and #3 Button Demo):

data-direction attr value for Button Demo #2 Effect Direction
data-direction="left" or no data-direction attribute Button Demo #2 Left effect
data-direction="right" Button Demo #2 Right effect
data-direction="top" Button Demo #2 Top effect
data-direction="bottom" Button Demo #2 Bottom effect
data-direction attr value for Button Demo #3 Effect Direction
data-direction="vertical" or no data-direction attribute Button Demo #3 Vertical effect
data-direction="horizontal" Button Demo #3 Horizontal effect
data-direction="horz-vert" Button Demo #3 Horizontal and Vertical effect
data-direction="diagonal" Button Demo #3 Diagonal effect

Helps to create small filled button with a Horizontal and Vertical direction of Button Demo #3:

<form class="your-class">
 <button type="submit" data-size="sm" data-filled="filled" data-direction="horz-vert">Submit<button>
