Label field

The Label field plays a crucial role in form design by providing context and guidance to users. Some users use the placeholder text as field labels and it is not a good UI / UX practice. As the placeholders will not be visible when the fields gains focus. Users with accessibility issues will also face problems when the fields do not have explicit labels. So it is recommed that you design all your forms with labels for all the fields.

To enable you do this easily, we have designed a field in such a way that it comes with a field label by default. All you need to do is supply the correct lable information.
