I am using something like this to build all my forms
<div class="dx-field-label">My Label</div>
<dx-text-box [(value)]="Entity.Plate" mask="00-000-00" useMaskedValue="true" [disabled]="IsLockedForChanges()" formatRequired>
How do I make the label to appear above the textbox so it would look as it should in material design?
Is there some global property or something?
I see you have this option on the form widget but using it is not flexible enough for my needs
Unfortunately, TextBox doesn't support this functionality in Material themes out of the box. This feature is on our TO-DO list and you can track our progress with the corresponding GitHub issue.
At the moment, I suggest you use this CodePen sample as a possible workaround. It is based on custom markup and CSS customization. Please note that this workaround is just a temporary solution and we recommend replacing it with the new official one in the future.
