KendoReact Inputs Overview

The KendoReact Inputs are fields which allow for an input of data, based on a specific and predefined format.

The Inputs components are part of the KendoReact library which provides native Kendo UI components for the React ecosystem and are available under the kendo-react-inputs NPM package.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the NumericTextBox and Input components in action.

class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
             <div className="row example-wrapper" style={{ minHeight: 450 }}>
                <div className="col-12 col-md-6 example-col">
                    <Input label="First name"/>
                <div className="col-12 col-md-6 example-col">
                <div className="col-12 col-md-6 example-col">
                <div className="col-12 col-md-6 example-col">
                    <Slider min={1} max={10} step={1} defaultValue={4} />
                <div className="col-12 col-md-6 example-col">
                    <Switch />
    <App />,


  1. Download and install the package:

    npm install --save @progress/kendo-react-inputs @progress/kendo-react-intl
