bookmark_bordertext Field


The text type field, part of the Settings API, renders a text input.


The following example shows a section with two text boxes.

The first text box is required and upon submission, the function validate_mytextfield specified in the feedback_callback property will be called to check additional conditions.

The second text box only displays based on the result of the dependency property. If the field mytextfield_name (the first text box) has a value of showtestfield2 or test, the second text box will display.

	'title'       => esc_html__( 'This is the title for Section 1', 'sometextdomain' ),
	'description' => esc_html__( 'This is a description of the purpose of Section 1', 'sometextdomain' ),
	'fields'      => array(
			'type'              => 'text',
			'id'                => 'mytextfield_id',
			'name'              => 'mytextfield_name',
			'label'             => esc_html__( 'This is my text field', 'sometextdomain' ),
			'required'          => true,
			'value'             => 'This is the data specified for the value property',
			'default_value'     => 'This is the data specified for the default value property',
			'class'             => 'medium',
			'tooltip'           => esc_html__( 'This is my tooltip', 'sometextdomain' ),
			'tooltip_class'     => 'tooltipclass',
			'feedback_callback' => array( $this, 'validate_mytextfield' ),
			'type'       => 'text',
			'name'       => 'mytextfield2_name',
			'label'      => esc_html__( 'This is my second text field', 'sometextdomain' ),
			'dependency' => array( 'field' => 'mytextfield_name', 'values' => array( 'showtextfield2', 'test' ) ),

The code above will render the text boxes similar to the following:
