Transform Bootstrap 5/4 Form Labels Into Floating Labels - Material-style Inputs

A simple, lightweight jQuery plugin for creating Material Design style inputs that transform the Bootstrap 5/4 form label into floating labels when the text fields are focused or clicked.

How to use it:

1. Insert the JavaScript materialize-inputs.jquery.js and Stylesheet input-material.css into your Bootstrap 4 project.

<!-- Bootstrap 5 or Bootstrap 4 -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/cdn/bootstrap.min.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/cdn/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<!-- Material-style Inputs -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="input-material.css">
<script src="materialize-inputs.jquery.js"></script>

2. Add the CSS class input-material to the form groups.

<form id="contact-form">
  <div class="form-group input-material">
      <input type="text" class="form-control" id="name-field" required>
      <label for="name-field">Name</label>
  <div class="form-group input-material">
      <input type="email" class="form-control" id="email-field" required>
      <label for="email-field">Email</label>
  <div class="form-group input-material">
      <textarea class="form-control" id="textarea-field" rows="3" required></textarea>
      <label for="textarea-field">Your Message</label>
  <div class="text-center">
      <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Send</button>

3. Call the function materializeInputs to enable the floating labels on all the text fields within the document.


  // enable material-style inputs in entire body


4. You can also specify the target text fields using the selectors parameter.


  $('form').materializeInputs(".input-material input-1, .input-material input-2");
