Ionic Input Fields with Floating Labels and Icons Both

Ionic Framework using AngularJS 1 is having someĀ different type of input field styles like:

1) Placeholder Labels
2) Inline Labels
3) Stacked Labels
4) Floating Labels
5) Inset Forms
6) Input Icons

Documentation for these can be found here http://ionicframework.com/docs/components/#forms

But the style which I was looking for was a merge of both Floating labels plus Input Icons. There was not a way to use a blend of these anywhere. But after some CSS tweaking, I managed to achieve the piece I was looking for


Letā€™s start ā€¦

Here we will take an example of Login form having Username and Password inputs

For Foating Labels we add following Ionic HTML

 

<label class="item item-input item-floating-label">
    <span class="input-label">Username</span>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Username">
</label>
<label class="item item-input item-floating-label">
    <span class="input-label">Password</span>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Password">
</label>

 

For adding input labels we use the following code

<label class="item item-input">
    <i class="icon ion-android-person placeholder-icon"></i>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Username" class="username">
</label>
<label class="item item-input">
    <i class="icon ion-android-lock placeholder-icon"></i>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Password" class="password">
</label>

 

Now if we merge both it will look a bit distortedĀ 


To make it look decent we will add a custom class and some CSS style.
Add "custom-login-label" class on label and CSS style

 

.custom-login-label input[type]{
    margin-left: 20px;
}
.custom-login-label i {
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 12px;
}

Final HTML will look like thisĀ 

 

<label class="item item-input item-floating-label custom-login-label">
    <i class="icon ion-android-person placeholder-icon"></i>
    <span class="input-label">Username</span>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Username" class="username">
</label>
<label class="item item-input item-floating-label custom-login-label">
    <i class="icon ion-android-lock placeholder-icon"></i>
    <span class="input-label">Password</span>
    <input type="text" placeholder="Password" class="password">
</label>

 

 

It's Done now you have Ionic input with both floating labels and Icons in it .
