Chakra UI is a simple, modular, and accessible component library that provides developers with a set of easy-to-use, flexible components that cater to almost all the UI requirements of modern web applications, including form components. Chakra UI components are built on top of React and have a broad user base due to their ease of use, extensive documentation, and the flexibility they provide to developers.
Chakra-UI's Form Components:
Button 🔗: This is one of the most frequently used components in any UI toolkit. In Chakra UI, a Button component represents a clickable element, usually used for submitting forms, and includes various states such as hover, active, focus, and disabled.
Checkbox 🔗: This component allows the user to make multiple selections from a set of options. Chakra UI provides a customizable Checkbox component that supports different sizes, colors, and states.
Editable 🔗: In Chakra UI this is an intuitive component that allows users to edit content directly on the page without the need for a separate form or modal. It's a perfect tool for enabling in-place editing experiences on your website.
Form Control 🔗: This is a wrapper component that provides context and functionality for all form components. It helps to manage form states and group labels, form elements, and form helper text together.
Icon Button 🔗: This component allows users to take actions and make choices, with a visual icon used to communicate the action to the user. This component is usually used for buttons that contain an icon without text.
Input 🔗: This is an essential form element that allows users to enter text. Chakra UI provides a customizable Input component with built-in styles and states for different scenarios.
Number Input🔗: This is a component that allows users to input numerical values, with optional controls for incrementing or decrementing the value. It's handy for forms that require numeric user input, like quantity, age, or rating.
Pin Input 🔗: This is a specialized input component, used primarily for input fields where the number of characters users should enter is fixed, like OTPs, PINs, or password fields.
Radio 🔗: This component allows the user to make a single selection from a set of options. Chakra UI provides a Radio and RadioGroup component to create a group of radio buttons.
Range Slider🔗: This component is a user input where the user selects a value or range of values by dragging a slider thumb. This component is typically used for filtering and specifying a range of values.
Select 🔗: This allows users to choose one option from a list. It's a staple in any form-based user interface and is used for options that are too numerous to be efficiently represented by radio buttons.
Slider 🔗: Similar to the Range Slider, a Slider is an input where the user selects a single value by dragging a slider thumb. This component is typically used for selecting a value on a continuum, like volume or brightness.
Switch 🔗: This is a checkbox with a physical toggle-like interaction model. It's an ideal component for representing an on/off or true/false selection.
Textarea 🔗: This is an input component designed for multi-line text input. It's used in scenarios where the user is expected to provide more extended text entries, such as comments or feedback.
