Text input field with actions based on value
For prototyping and user testing, a text input field control would be very helpful. Bonus if you could apply actions to enter / submit based on different strings.
Really important feature guys.
A prototyping tool should really have this by default. Basic UI components that are actually interactive (e.g. text input, text area, checkboxes) are vital. For user testing, we have to create multiple screens to 'fake' this effect. Not only is this very difficult to manage, especially for complex journeys, but it also impacts the prototype's realism in usability testing. In a user test, the amount of times I've had to intervene when users say 'why can't I type in the box?' is innumerable. Frankly, I find it astounding why, which exception of Axure, no prototyping tool offers this - from Adobe XD, to Sketch, to Balsamiq. I'd happily migrate to Adobe XD if you add this!

Having an input textbox in XD would be soooo helpful. kindly Add this feature pls, users need to be able to see a live preveiw of what they are typing into TEXT feilds to really appreciate the prototyping design done.
its urgent pls
We're considering changing prototyping tools, it's great having everything in one place with Adobe, but if we can't do actual user testing with fields it's a no go.

Why is this not available. What tha heyll!
Brandon Eckenrode commented
This would change my world! Huge need!

Yes! This is the main reason I use Axure over other tools, I often need to see what a user would type into a field to answer a question as a test for the question wording being clear enough to the user.

I miss the functionality of the input box. An input box where the user can type and immediately see on the screen what is he writing. This is the only reason why sometimes I have to go back to Axure RP. And I hate these moments.

Please do this! Literally no design/prototyping tool does this, you have to use multiple tools (XD + UX Pin for eg) to achieve it which is such a pain. This is vital for user testing web application forms, I'd imagine a large proportion of your users are in-house designers, creating enterprise software for their companies, not portfolio sites or shops. This is a must!

This feature is really needed in XD. As in Uxpin, INPUT TEXT BOX and DROPDOWN MENU is just a drag and drop. Hopefully Adobe is also having a very strong development team to add this feature.
James Whelan commented
This feature alone makes Axure worth its cost! Please bring this to XD
Guillaume Ortega commented
We are all waiting for this feature !
PLEASE ADD THIS!!!
Why isn't this available?! This is just common sense..
now more then ever does Adobe XD need to add this, with most of the other functionality being integrated into XD already this is the oly basic feature that shocked me when I realised this wasn't do-able within XD.
Please add this in Early or Late 2020.

Please let Adobe XD take advantage of iOS and Android keyboard for wireframing to allow the input of dynamic characters in text boxes.
Yes, this is so needed.
Sean Taylor-Leech commented
The ability to demonstrate form completion is very valuable to stakeholders and developers.

Это была бы просто нереально полезная функция.
Please please add this. It is VITALLY needed. For a prototyping app to not provide at least the basic input fields like text, radio, popup leaves so so much out. I thought this would appear in the 2020 version but sadly it didn't and nothing at Adobe Max showed it either.
Please, myself and everyone here and in tons of other similar requests are begging for this. Even just a super simple few components that function like the real things. Please? :)
