Forms: Basic


Usage: Individual form controls automatically receive some global styling. All textual <input>, <textarea>, and <select> elements with .form-control are set to width: 100%; by default. Wrap labels and controls in .form-group for optimum spacing.


Example block-level help text here.


  <div class="form-group">

    <input type="email" class="form-control" id="exampleInputEmail1" placeholder="Email" />
  <div class="form-group">

    <input type="password" class="form-control" id="exampleInputPassword1" placeholder="Password" />
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="exampleInputFile">File input</label>
    <input type="file" id="exampleInputFile" />
