Phone Input

This page provides information on using the Phone Input, which allows you to capture phone numbers as input from users.

Using the Phone Input Widget

Content properties

These properties are customizable options present in the property pane of the widget, allowing users to modify the widget according to their preferences.


Default Value string

Allows you to assign an initial value to the widget before user interaction.

Default country code string

Allows you to select a country code from a list of countries. Additionally, by clicking on JS, you can use custom country dial codes like +91.

Change country code boolean

Enabling this property allows the user to change the country code from the dropdown menu.


Text string

Sets the label on the widget.

Position string

This property allows you to configure the label's placement.


  • Auto: Automatically positions the label based on the widget type and layout.
  • Left: Aligns the label to the left side of the widget.
  • Top: Positions the label above the widget.

Alignment string

This property is only available when you select Left from the Position property. It allows you to align the text to the left boundary or adjust it closer to the widget using the Right alignment option.

Width number

This property is only available when you select Left from the Position property. It allows you to control the proximity of the text to the widget, determining how close or far it can be positioned.


Required boolean

When enabled, this property makes the Phone Input a mandatory field. When the Phone Input is placed within a Form widget, enabling the Required property ensures that the Form's submit button remains disabled until the Phone Input has some value.

Regex regExp

The Regex property, short for Regular Expression, enables you to apply custom validations on user input by defining specific constraints using regular expressions. If the user enters a value that does not adhere to the specified pattern, the widget displays an error message indicating "invalid input".

For instance, if you want to validate that a phone number consists of exactly 10 digits, you can set the Regex as:


Valid boolean

Allows you to set an expression to determine the validity of the user's input. When the specified expression evaluates to false, indicating that the input is invalid, the widget displays an error message. This feature enables you to define custom validation rules and provide informative error messages to guide the user when their input does not meet the required criteria.

Error Message string

Allows you to customize the feedback provided to the user when they enter an incorrect value. By default, the input widget displays a generic "invalid input" message.


Tooltip string

Enables you to add hints or provide additional information to guide the user regarding the required input.

Placeholder string

Allows you to set the placeholder text displayed within the input box. This can be used to provide a hint or example value to the user, guiding them on the expected format or content of the input.

Visible boolean

Controls the visibility of the widget. If you turn off this property, the widget would not be visible in View Mode. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Visible property to conditionally control the widget's visibility.

For example, if you want to make the widget visible only when the user selects "Yes" from a Select widget, you can use the following JavaScript expression:

{{Select1.selectedOptionValue === "Yes"}}

Disabled boolean

Prevents users from selecting the widget. Even though the widget remains visible, user input is not permitted. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Disabled property to control the widget's disable state conditionally.

For example, if you want to allow only a specific user to fill the input, you can use the following JavaScript expression:


Animate Loading boolean

Controls whether the widget is displayed with a loading animation. When enabled, the widget shows a skeletal animation during the loading process. Additionally, you can control it through JavaScript by clicking on the JS next to the property.

Auto Focus boolean

When enabled, automatically places the user's cursor in the input box upon page load, directing their attention to the input field for immediate interaction.

Enable formatting boolean

When turned on, the phone number typed into the input gets formatted based on the selected country code.

Height string

This property determines how the widget's height adjusts to changes in its content.


  • Fixed: Maintains a constant height for the widget, allowing you to adjust it by dragging or using the resize handle.
  • Auto Height: The widget's height adjusts dynamically in response to changes in its content.
  • Auto Height with limits: Same as Auto height, with a configurable option to set the minimum and maximum number of rows the widget can occupy.


When the event is triggered, these event handlers can run queries, JS code, or other supported actions.


Specifies the actions to be executed when the input is modified.


Specifies the actions to be executed when the input area is focused.


Specifies the actions to be executed when the input area loses focus.

Reset on submit

Clears the input value after submission.

Style properties

Style properties allow you to change the look and feel of the widget.

Font color string

Represents the text color of the widget, specified as a CSS color value. Additionally, the font color can be programmatically modified using JavaScript functions.

Font size string

Determines the font size of the label. It accepts CSS font-size values and can also be programmatically modified using JavaScript functions.

Emphasis string

Enables you to select a font style for the widget, such as bold or italic. Additionally, the font style can be programmatically modified using JavaScript functions.

Border radius string

Applies rounded corners to the outer edge of the widget. If JavaScript is enabled, you can specify valid CSS border-radius to adjust the radius of the corners.

Box Shadow string

This property adds a drop shadow effect to the frame of the widget. If JavaScript is enabled, you can specify valid CSS box-shadow values to customize the appearance of the shadow.

Reference properties

Reference properties are properties that are not available in the property pane but can be accessed using the dot operator in other widgets or JavaScript functions. They provide additional information or allow interaction with the widget programmatically. For instance, to get the visibility status, you can use PhoneInput1.isVisible.

countryCode string

The countryCode property stores the country code associated with the selected country.



dialCode string

The dialCode property retrieves the dialing code of the selected country.



text string

The text property retrieves the formatted input value of the widget.



value string

The value property retrieves the unformatted phone number, regardless of whether formatting is enabled or not.



isValid boolean

The isValid property indicates the validation status of a widget, providing information on whether the widget's current value is considered valid or not.



isDisabled boolean

The isDisabled property reflects the state of the widget's Disabled setting. It is represented by a boolean value, where true indicates that the widget is not available, and false indicates that it is enabled for user interaction.



isVisible boolean

The isVisible property indicates the visibility state of a widget, with true indicating it is visible and false indicating it is hidden.




Widget property setters enable you to modify the values of widget properties at runtime, eliminating the need to manually update properties in the editor.

These methods are asynchronous and return a Promise. You can use the .then() block to ensure execution and sequencing of subsequent lines of code in Appsmith.

setVisibility (param: boolean): Promise

Sets the visibility of the widget.



setDisabled (param: boolean): Promise

Sets the disabled state of the widget.
