A set of nice base styles for buttons and form elements, to aid prototyping web apps and the like. See the demo here.
Download using the link above. Include the stylesheet, icon file, Modernizr, and CSS3PIE to your project.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/inputs.css"> <!--[if lte IE 8]> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/ie.css"> <![endif]--> <!--[if lte IE 6]> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/ie6.css"> <![endif]--> <script src="js/modernizr-1.7.min.js"></script>
Create a form and enjoy the style!
Inputs is designed to be modular, so there's need to worry about deleting blocks of styles you don't need.
Required components (included):
- Modernizr for icon styles (makes use of multiple background images)
- CSS3PIE for rounded corners and icons in IE8 and below.
Recommends HTML5 Boilerplate.
Inputs provides default styles to most form buttons, but there are also some handy classes:
<a href="#" class="button">Anchor Button</a>
<a href="#" class="small button">Small Button</a>
Icons exist for a set of actions, and can be used with any small button. Possible icon classes: add, remove, confirm, download, upload. Check out the demo to see these examples for real.
<a href="#" class="small add button">Add Button</a>
Buttons can be grouped in a list, provided the
<ul> has the "button group" class, and the first and last
<li> elements have the classes "first" and "last" respectively:
<ul class="button-group clearfix"> <li class="first"><input class="small" type="submit" value="Nice" /></li> <li><input class="small" type="submit" value="Grouped" /></li> <li class="last"><input class="small" type="submit" value="Buttons" /></li> </ul>
Unfortunately rounded corners wont work for grouped buttons in IE :(
Sometimes it's useful to allow text fields & textareas fill their containers. To lock a text input to its container, wrap it in an element with the classes "text-wrapper lock-x":
<div class="text-wrapper lock-x"> <input type="text" placeholder="Text field that fills width" /> </div>
Locking a textarea to the width and height of its container is a bit more tricky. Check out the demo to see an example.
