Customize avatar sizes

Even though the avatar comes with five predefined sizes, sometimes it’s not enough. So, the avatar is designed in such a way that the width and height will be relative to font-size. By changing the font-size of the avatar element, you can change the width and height automatically.

Dynamic avatar rendering from datasource

We can render avatar component dynamically from a data-source. In this sample we have rendered the avatar component using a data-source which contains the image source in different sizes dynamically. This is applicable also for data-source from the server or remote data or AJAX. We have also rendered the avatar using CSS property background-image and using image tag.
