FloatingLabel Overview

The FloatingLabel component enables you to provide a floating label functionality to Vue components. It supports labelling both form elements (e.g.: input element) and custom focusable elements. It can contain Kendo UI for Vue Native Input components such as Native DropDownList and NumericTextBox, or HTML elements like input.

Basic Usage

Wrap the component within a FloatingLabel component. Then set the label, editorValue and editorId properties of the FloatingLabel.

Labelling components without form element

By default the wrapped element is associated with the label element only if it's a form element (e.g.: input, select element). Custom components that do not contain form element (e.g.: Kendo UI for Vue DropDownList) would require setting additional properties to allow screen readers to correcly read the label. These properties are:

  • id property of the FloatingLabel
  • aria-labelledby attribute of the nested editor (Kendo UI for Vue components provide it as ariaLabelledBy property)
