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

  • root
  • formControl
  • focused
  • disabled
  • underline
  • error
  • multiline
  • fullWidth
  • input
  • inputMarginDense
  • inputMultiline
  • inputType
  • inputTypeSearch

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

If using the overrides key of the theme as documented here, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiInput.
