The API documentation of the InputLabel React component.


Name Type Default Description
children node The contents of the InputLabel.
classes object Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
disableAnimation bool false If true, the transition animation is disabled.
disabled bool If true, apply disabled class.
error bool If true, the label will be displayed in an error state.
focused bool If true, the input of this label is focused.
FormLabelClasses object classes property applied to the FormLabel element.
margin enum: 'dense'
If dense, will adjust vertical spacing. This is normally obtained via context from FormControl.
required bool if true, the label will indicate that the input is required.
shrink bool If true, the label is shrunk.

Any other properties supplied will be spread to the root element (FormLabel).


You can override all the class names injected by Material-UI thanks to the classes property. This property accepts the following keys:

Name Description
root Styles applied to the root element.
formControl Styles applied to the root element if the component is a descendant of FormControl.
marginDense Styles applied to the root element if margin="dense".
shrink Styles applied to the input element if shrink={true}.
animated Styles applied to the input element if disableAnimation={false}.

Have a look at overriding with classes section and the implementation of the component for more detail.

If using the overrides key of the theme as documented here, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiInputLabel.


The properties of the FormLabel component are also available. You can take advantage of this behavior to target nested components.
