I am wondering if there is a simple way (dropdown option or checkbox) to add a title to a field in the Drupal Commerce checkout page. Specifically, I want the second field for Street Address to have the label: Address line 2.


I was unable to find this field in Admin > Structure > View that allows the option to "Manage Display" or "Manage Form Display" and make a label for a field "Hidden" or otherwise.

I also looked in the Commerce sections to no avail.

Next step is to find out if there is a Billing Information > "Manage Form Display menu somewhere.

Not in Home > Administration > Configuration > People > Profiles > Profile types > Edit Customer > Manage fields either.

Not possible in User Interface (via link or menu or whatever). But if you use the following code in a module, you can add a title to your form element:

function CUSTOM_form_alter($form, $form_state, $form_id) {
  // You should probably check for a form_id in here, as this runs on every form.
  // Below you will need to find the part of the $form array that has the billing address.
  $form['[see note above]']['widget'][0]['address']['address_line2']['#title'] = t('Address 2');

The second line of the address field has an invisible title. It's explicitly set by the Address module.

You can see that in action here: cgit.drupalcode.org/address/tree/src/Element/Address.php?h=272a7ce#n231

// Hide the label for the second address line.
if (isset($element['address_line2'])) {
  $element['address_line2']['#title_display'] = 'invisible';

You could use hook_element_info_alter() to define new process or after_build callbacks.

function mytheme_element_info_alter(array &$types) {
  $types['address']['#process'][] = ['\Drupal\mytheme\Element\Address', 'processAddress'];

Overriding the element:

namespace Drupal\mytheme\Element;

use \Drupal\address\Element\Address as DefaultAddress;
use \Drupal\Core\Form\FormStateInterface;

 * {@inheritdoc}
class Address extends DefaultAddress {

   * {@inheritdoc}
  public static function processAddress(array &$element, FormStateInterface $form_state, array &$complete_form) {
    $element = parent::processAddress($element, $form_state, $complete_form);
    return $element;


This answer is clumsy as it makes all form element labels visible, but ultimately gets the job done.

Using this theme and modifying specifically this template: DOrange_form-element-label.html.twig with an additional conditional before the set classes statment:

{%- if title_display == 'invisible'-%}
    set title_display = [
{%- endif -%}
