Bootstrap powered FormGroup Addon for Vaadin

Just another helper to build a more accessible and mobile friendly form with the power of Bootstrap 4 and Vaadin 8.

This addon helps you to easily create a good looking and accessible form with Bootstrap 4 combined with Valo as Theming Engine.

This Addon doesn't integrate Bootstrap in your project, you have to do it yourself!

The following is currently supported:

  • most of the input components (see github)
  • better accessibility by default
  • captions are rendered as labels and always with aria-labelledby and for combined with the input
  • all fields can get a description, the field is automatically linked to the description with aria-describedby
  • the same goes for error messages, the area below the field's description is called feedback - this area is also aria-describedby if it's not empty - useful for validation results.
  • FormGroupRatio to fully use the magic of bootstrap (see the example app)
  • bootstrap coloring (danger, warning & success)
