Installation

:warning: Warning :warning:

From NativeScript 5.x using this component will break the NativeScript tab component on iOS (which is bound to be removed). This is needed to allow using the latest native iOS features. If needed you can use either bottomnavigationbar (this one is the best choice, closest to material design) or material-tabs (clone of the NativeScript one, but with a little less features).

For NativeScript 7.0+

  • tns plugin add @nativescript-community/ui-material-textfield

For NativeScript 6.x

  • tns plugin add nativescript-material-textfield

If using tns-core-modules

  • tns plugin add nativescript-material-textfield@2.5.4

Be sure to run a new build after adding plugins to avoid any issues.

})
<MDTextField  helper="example helper" placeholderColor="green" keyboardType="datetime"

Vue.use(TextFieldPlugin);
<MDTextField helper="example helper" placeholderColor="green" keyboardType="datetime"

<MDTextField v-model="value" />
