Yet another jQuery implementation of the iOS Style Float Lable Pattern that floats the placeholder value above the input when your user starts typing or moves the focus to the text field.

How to use it:

1. Add the stylesheet slidinput.css and the JavaScript slidinput.js to the webpage.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/dist/jquery.slidinput.min.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquer.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/dist/jquery.slidinput.min.js"></script>

2. Attach the plugin to the input field within the document. Note that each input field must have a placeholder attribute for the floating label.

<input type="text" placeholder="Username" class="myInput" />

<input type="password" placeholder="Password" class="myInput" />

<input type="url" placeholder="Website" class="myInput" />

3. Set the scale factor. Default: 0.5.

  scaling: 0.7

4. Make the label floating above the input field.

  mode: 'above'

5. Enable the regular mode.

  mode: 'regular'

6. Override the default styles of the floating label.

.myInput {
  font-family: sans-serif;
  border: 2px solid #a57e94;
  border-radius: 6px;
  margin: 10px 20px;
  background-color: transparent;
  color: #a57e94;
  padding: 10px 12px;

.myInput-wrapper.focused .slidinput-placeholder {
  color: #ad5e57 !important;
.myInput-wrapper.filled .slidinput-placeholder {
  color: #7ea58b !important;



  • Added new mode: regular
  • Added text-align: center support
  • Adding classes to wrapper according to input mode


  • Fixed height 100% issue, improved focus/filled class tracking.
