A ChipInput allows users to create chips to filter content or make selections. Chips are created by typing characters or words and pressing the Enter key.


Using chip inputs

The ChipInput component utilizes a TextInput, enabling users to filter information by typing text that transforms into a chip. These chips can be edited by clicking directly on them or removed by interacting with the embedded remove button within each chip.

Use the ChipInput when users need to simplify a complex filtering process or when they need to edit the filters applied there.

Avoid using ChipInput if the filtering process is simple and doesn't require custom edits. In case you need to select static options that don't require editing, consider using a Checkbox group instead.

Example of a Codex ChipInput with two chips within the input.


Specification of ChipInput.

ChipInputs include the following items:

  1. TextInput
    The user can type letters or words within this input to create the chips and filter the information.
  2. Chip or chips
    The chip or chips created are stacked next to each other, and they are editable and can be removed.

Refer to the ChipInput component in Codex Figma.


Depending on the placement of the chips, there are two types of ChipInput:

  1. Chips within the input field
    In this case, when the chips are created they are placed next to the input’s placeholder text, and they are stacked next to each other.
  2. Chips separated from the input field
    In this case, the chips are placed in a light gray box above the input field once they are created.

Chip input type based on chip placement: chips within the input or chips separated from the input.

Basic Usage

Pass an array of chip data to the input using v-model:input-chips. When the user adds or removes a chip, the array will automatically be updated.

Text for the aria-label of each chip's "remove" button is a required prop.
