import FormGroup from '@material-ui/core/FormGroup';

FormGroup wraps controls such as Checkbox and Switch. It provides compact row layout. For the Radio, you should be using the RadioGroup component instead of this one.


Name Type Default Description
children node The content of the component.
classes object Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
row bool false Display group of elements in a compact row.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.

Any other properties supplied will be provided to the root element (native element).


You can override all the class names injected by Material-UI thanks to the classes property. This property accepts the following keys:

Name Description
root Styles applied to the root element.
row Styles applied to the root element if row={true}.

Have a look at the overriding styles with classes section and the implementation of the component for more detail.

If using the overrides key of the theme, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiFormGroup.


The component is fully StrictMode compatible.
