Blazor Form Overview

    The Form Component in Blazor is used for setting up a contact form and/or a registration page that fit in any application's requirements. You can easily provide Blazor form validation, define form orientation, and configure or customize your desired layout as well. The Blazor form component also exposes events that give you the opportunity to respond to user actions.

    Blazor Form Example

    The following example represents IgbForm that has some inputs, buttons and a checkbox inside.

    Usage

    Before using the IgbForm, you need to register it as follows:

    IgbFormModule.Register(IgniteUIBlazor);
    

    You will also need to link an additional CSS file to apply the styling to the IgbForm component. The following needs to be placed in the wwwroot/index.html file in a Blazor Web Assembly project or the Pages/_Host.cshtml file in a Blazor Server project:

    <link href="_content/IgniteUI.Blazor/themes/light/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    

    The simplest way to start using the IgbForm is as follows:

    Form data is collected for the following components:

    When a form control is invalid, the form will not be submitted and an error message will be shown. If you want to specify that the form elements should not be validated when the form is submitted you can add the novalidate attribute to the IgbForm element:

    <IgbForm NoValidate="true" />
    

    Events

    The Form component raises the following events:

    • Submit - Raised when the form is submitted
    • Reset - Raised when the form is reset

    Here is an example showing how to add an event listener for the Submit event:
