The QField component is used to provide common functionality and aspect to form components. It uses
v-model if you want to use
clearable property) to have knowledge of the model of the component inside. It has support for labels, hints, errors, validation, and comes in a variety of styles and colors.
QField allows you to display any form control (or almost anything as a matter of fact) inside it. Just place your desired content inside the
Do NOT wrap QInput, QFile or QSelect with QField as these components already inherit QField.
The examples below use dumb content (text) just to show you the design that QField can use. For checking out examples that wrap real components, see the “Basic Features” section.
QField does not (and should not) manage your
control slot, so if you use
label prop, it might be a good idea to also specify
stack-label, otherwise it might overlap your control when QField is not focused.
For your QField you can use only one of the main designs (
borderless). You cannot use multiple as they are self-exclusive.
One of the most appropriate use cases for Standout design is in a QToolbar:
borderless design allows you to seamlessly integrate your QField into other components without QField drawing a border around itself or changing its background color:
rounded prop only works along with Filled, Outlined and Standout designs, as showcased in the example below:
square prop only makes sense along with Filled, Outlined and Standout designs, as showcased in the example below:
As a helper, you can use
clearable prop so user can reset model to
null through an appended icon.
clearable you must use
v-model or listen on
@update:model-value and update the value.
Anything you place inside the
control slot will be used as content of the field. We provide a few examples of controls below.
Most of the form controls always render something visible, so you if you’re using a
label then you might want to set it along with
stack-label, otherwise the label will overlap the enclosed control.

If you want to interact with the content of the label (QTooltip) add the
all-pointer-events class on the element in the slot.
Slots with QBtn type “submit”
When placing a QBtn with type “submit” in one of the “before”, “after”, “prepend”, or “append” slots of a QField, QInput or QSelect, you should also add a
@click listener on the QBtn in question. This listener should call the method that submits your form. All “click” events in such slots are not propagated to their parent elements.
You can validate QField components with
:rules prop. Specify array of embedded rules or your own validators. Your custom validator will be a function which returns
true if validator succeeds or
String with error message if it doesn’t succeed.
By default, for perf reasons, a change in the rules does not trigger a new validation until the model changes. In order to trigger the validation when rules change too, then use
reactive-rules Boolean prop. The downside is a performance penalty (so use it when you really need this only!) and it can be slightly mitigated by using a computed prop as value for the rules (and not specify them inline in the vue template).
This is so you can write convenient rules of shape like:
value => condition || errorMessage
value => value < 10 || 'Value should be lower'
You can reset the validation by calling
resetValidation() method on the QField.
If you set
lazy-rules, validation starts after first blur. If
lazy-rules is set to
ondemand String, then validation will be triggered only when component’s validate() method is manually called or when the wrapper QForm submits itself.
Rules can be async too, by using async/await or by directly returning a Promise.
Consider coupling async rules with
debounce prop to avoid calling the async rules immediately on each keystroke, which might be detrimental to performance.
You can also use external validation and only pass
bottom-slots to display this error message).
Depending on your needs, you might connect Vuelidate (our recommended approach) or some other validation library to QField.
You can also customize the slot for error message:
