We can extend form controls by adding buttons and text before, after, and on both sides of any text based <input>.

Addon

We can addon using the .input-group-addon class to a text based input field.

<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-addon" 
        id="basic-addon">@</span>
  <input type="text" 
         class="form-control" 
         placeholder="Enter your twitter handle"
         aria-describedby="basic-addon">
</div>

Output

  <input type="text" 
         class="form-control" 
         placeholder="Enter your email address"
         aria-describedby="basic-addon">
  <span class="input-group-addon" 
        id="basic-addon">@gmail.com</span>
</div>

Output

  <span class="input-group-addon">INR</span>
  <input type="text"
         class="form-control"
         placeholder="Amount in Indian Rupee"

</div>
