Usage considerations

Using the tag parameter with text values

  • If the tags parameter is null, contains an empty array, or only contains tag items with no text value, then the label and instructions render with no tags displayed.
  • If multiple tags are displayed in a narrow container, tags can wrap onto multiple lines. An individual tag will never be split onto two lines.
