International Telephone Input With Flags and Dial Codes

International Telephone Input is a useful JavaScript jQuery plugin that turns the standard input into an International Telephone Input with a national flag drop down list.

When clicking the dropdown list, it lists all the countries and their international dial codes next to their flags. Ideal for international visitors of your website.

Basic usage:

1. Include the required intlTelInput.css in the head section of your page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="build/css/intlTelInput.css">

2. Create a standard telephone input field.

<input type="tel" id="demo" placeholder="" id="telephone">

3. Include the International Telephone Input plugin at the bottom of your page.

<!-- Use as a Vanilla JS plugin -->
<script src="build/js/intlTelInput.min.js"></script> 

4. Initialize the plugin and we're done.

// Vanilla Javascript
var input = document.querySelector("#telephone");
  // options here

5. All default options to customize the plugin.

// whether or not to allow the dropdown
allowDropdown: true,

// add a placeholder in the input with an example number for the selected country
autoPlaceholder: "polite",

// add a country search input at the top of the dropdown
countrySearch: true,

// modify the parentClass
containerClass: "",

// modify the auto placeholder
customPlaceholder: null,

// append menu to specified element
dropdownContainer: null,

// don't display these countries
excludeCountries: [],

// fix the dropdown width to the input width (rather than being as wide as the longest country name)
fixDropdownWidth: true,

// format the number as the user types
formatAsYouType: true,

// format the input value during initialisation and on setNumber
formatOnDisplay: true,

// geoIp lookup function
geoIpLookup: null,

// inject a hidden input with the name returned from this function, and on submit, populate it with the result of getNumber
hiddenInput: null,

// internationalise the plugin text e.g. search input placeholder, country names
i18n: {},

// initial country
initialCountry: "",

// national vs international formatting for numbers e.g. placeholders and displaying existing numbers
nationalMode: true,

// display only these countries
onlyCountries: [],

// number type to use for placeholders
placeholderNumberType: "MOBILE",

// the countries at the top of the list
preferredCountries: [],

// option to hide the flags - must be used with showSelectedDialCode, or allowDropdown=false
showFlags: true,

// display the international dial code next to the selected flag
showSelectedDialCode: false,

// only allow certain chars e.g. a plus followed by numeric digits, and cap at max valid length
strictMode: false,

// use full screen popup instead of dropdown for country list
useFullscreenPopup: typeof navigator !== "undefined" && typeof window !== "undefined" ? (
  // we cannot just test screen size as some smartphones/website meta tags will report desktop
  // resolutions
  // Note: to target Android Mobiles (and not Tablets), we must find 'Android' and 'Mobile'
  /Android.+Mobile|webOS|iPhone|iPod|BlackBerry|IEMobile|Opera Mini/i.test(
  ) || window.innerWidth <= 500
) : false,

// specify the path to the libphonenumber script to enable validation/formatting
utilsScript: ""

6. API methods.

// destroy

// Get the extension part of the current number
var extension = instance.getExtension();

// Get the current number in the given format
var intlNumber = instance.getNumber();

// Get the type (fixed-line/mobile/toll-free etc) of the current number. 
var numberType = instance.getNumberType();

// Get the country data for the currently selected flag.
var countryData = instance.getSelectedCountryData();

// Get more information about a validation error. 
var error = instance.getValidationError();

// Validate the current number
var isValid = instance.isValidNumber();

// Check if the current number is valid using precise matching rules for each country/area code etc
var isValid = instance.isValidNumberPrecise();

// Change the country selection

// Insert a number, and update the selected flag accordingly.
instance.setNumber("+44 7733 123 456");

// Change the placeholderNumberType option.

// Load the utils.js script (included in the lib directory) to enable formatting/validation etc.

// Get all the country data

// Get instance

7. Event handlers.

input.addEventListener("countrychange", function() {
  // do something with iti.getSelectedCountryData()

input.addEventListener("open:countrydropdown", function() {
  // triggered when the user opens the dropdown

input.addEventListener("close:countrydropdown", function() {
  // triggered when the user closes the dropdown
