‘ Text field ’ as a component

The process to create Text field components:

  2. Create a rectangle for the text field container with fixed dimensions.
  3. Now, apply an outline stroke of about 2px to the container. Allow the stroke color to remain default gray and change the fill color to white (#ffffff)
  4. Then, type the placeholder text for the container. (eg. ‘Placeholder’)
  5. Now, choose a typeface and font size for the placeholder text. (eg. Open Sans, 17pt - Regular)
  6. Place this text above the text field container.
  7. Align the placeholder text and text field container according to the requirements. (left, right, center)
  8. Select both the layers and click on the ‘create component’ button or click ‘Ctrl + Alt + K’ or ‘⌥ Option -⌘ Command-K.’
  9. Rename the component as ‘text-field/primary/(style)’.
