Overview

The TextBox is a widget that enables a user to enter and edit a single line of text.

View Demo

The following code adds a simple TextBox with a placeholder to your page.

HTML
<div id="textBoxContainer" style="width:300px"></div>
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#textBoxContainer").dxTextBox({
        placeholder: "Type a text here..."
    });
});

If an end user should not be able to edit the value in the TextBox, assign true to the readOnly option. In this case, make sure to set the value option too.

JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#textBoxContainer").dxTextBox({
        value: "The value that should not be edited",
        readOnly: true
    });
});
