Floating Labels Interaction

A short CSS code for floating labels on a form

For this to work we need a few things:

  1. You need to have a label for each input field. Those needs to be placed as siblings right after the input field.
  2. A short CSS code to handle the input states
  3. On an Email field, you must have a placeholder text (a blank space or transparent text can work great)

<style>
 input:focus~.floating-label,
 input:not(:focus):valid~.floating-label,
 input[type=email]:not(:placeholder-shown)~.floating-label {
   bottom: 35px;
   font-size: 11px;
 }

 .input-text:focus {
   outline: none;
 }
</style>
