Text inputs

The text input plugin has the following options:

initSelector CSS selector string

default: "input[type='text'], input[type='search'], :jqmData(type='search'), input[type='number'], :jqmData(type='number'), input[type='password'], input[type='email'], input[type='url'], input[type='tel'], textarea, input:not([type])"

This is used to define the selectors (element types, data roles, etc.) that will automatically be initialized as textinputs. To change which elements are initialized, bind this option to the mobileinit event:

$( document ).bind( "mobileinit", function(){
   $.mobile.textinput.prototype.options.initSelector = ".myInputs";
mini boolean

default: false

Sets the size of the element to a more compact, mini version. This option is also exposed as a data attribute: data-mini="true"

$('.selector').textinput({ mini: "true" });
preventFocusZoom boolean

default: true on iOS platforms

This option disables page zoom temporarily when a custom input is focused, which prevents iOS devices from zooming the page into the input. By default, iOS often zooms into form controls, and the behavior is often unnecessary and intrusive in mobile-optimized layouts. This option is also exposed as a data attribute: data-prevent-focus-zoom="true"

$('input').textinput({ preventFocusZoom: true });
theme string

default: null, inherited from parent

Sets the color scheme (swatch) for all instances of this widget. It accepts a single letter from a-z that maps to the swatches included in your theme. By default, it will inherit the same swatch color as it's parent container if not explicitly set. This option is also exposed as a data attribute: data-theme="a"

$('.selector').textinput({ theme: "a" });
