Form consists of input, radio, select, checkbox and so on. With form, you can collect, verify and submit data.


The component has been upgraded with a flex layout to replace the old float layout.

Basic form

It includes all kinds of input items, such as input, select, radio and checkbox.


W3C regulates that

When there is only one single-line text input field in a form, the user agent should accept Enter in that field as a request to submit the form.

To prevent this behavior, you can add @submit.prevent on <el-form>.

Inline form

When the vertical space is limited and the form is relatively simple, you can put it in one line.


Depending on your design, there are several different ways to align your label element.


Form component allows you to verify your data, helping you find and correct errors.

Custom validation rules

This example shows how to customize your own validation rules to finish a two-factor password verification.


Custom validate callback function must be called. See more advanced usage at async-validator.

Number Validate


When an el-form-item is nested in another el-form-item, its label width will be 0. You can set label-width on that el-form-item if needed.

Size control

All components in a Form inherit their size attribute from that Form. Similarly, FormItem also has a size attribute.

Form Methods

validatevalidate the whole form. Takes a callback as a param. After validation, the callback will be executed with two params: a boolean indicating if the validation has passed, and an object containing all fields that fail the validation. Returns a promise if callback is omittedFunction(callback: Function(boolean, object))
validateFieldvalidate one or several form itemsFunction(props: string | array, callback: Function(errorMessage: string))
resetFieldsreset all the fields and remove validation result
scrollToFieldScroll to the specified form fieldFunction(prop: string)
clearValidateclear validation message for certain fields. The parameter is prop name or an array of prop names of the form items whose validation messages will be removed. When omitted, all fields' validation messages will be clearedFunction(props: string | array)
