2 May 202324 minutes to read

Size

The size of the AppBar can be set using the mode property. The available types of the AppBar are as follows:

  • Regular AppBar
  • Prominent AppBar
  • Dense AppBar

Regular AppBar

This mode is the default one in which the AppBar is displayed with the default height.

import { AppBar } from "@syncfusion/ej2-navigations";
import { Button } from "@syncfusion/ej2-buttons";

const defaultAppBarObj: AppBar = new AppBar({
  colorMode: 'Primary'
});
defaultAppBarObj.appendTo("#defaultAppBar");

const defaultButtonMenuObj: Button = new Button({ cssClass: 'e-inherit', iconCss: 'e-icons e-menu' });
defaultButtonMenuObj.appendTo('#defaultButtonMenu');

const defaultButtonLoginObj: Button = new Button({ cssClass: 'e-inherit', content: 'FREE TRIAL' });
defaultButtonLoginObj.appendTo('#defaultButtonLogin');

Prominent AppBar

This height mode can be set to the AppBar by setting Prominent to the property mode. The prominent AppBar is displayed with a longer height and can be used for larger titles, images, or texts. It is also longer than the regular AppBar. In the following example, we have customized the prominent text using align-self and white-space CSS properties. You can change the prominent AppBar height if larger titles, images, or texts are used.

import { AppBar } from "@syncfusion/ej2-navigations";
import { Button } from "@syncfusion/ej2-buttons";

const defaultAppBarObj: AppBar = new AppBar({
  colorMode: 'Primary',
  mode: 'Prominent',
  cssClass: 'prominent-appbar'
});
defaultAppBarObj.appendTo("#defaultAppBar");

const defaultButtonMenuObj: Button = new Button({ cssClass: 'e-inherit', iconCss: 'e-icons e-menu' });
defaultButtonMenuObj.appendTo('#defaultButtonMenu');

const defaultButtonLoginObj: Button = new Button({ cssClass: 'e-inherit', content: 'FREE TRIAL' });
defaultButtonLoginObj.appendTo('#defaultButtonLogin');

Dense AppBar

This height mode can be set to the AppBar by setting Dense to the property mode. Dense AppBar is displayed with shorter height which is denser to accommodate all the AppBar content.

const defaultAppBarObj: AppBar = new AppBar({
  colorMode: 'Primary',
  mode: 'Dense'
});
defaultAppBarObj.appendTo("#defaultAppBar");

const defaultButtonMenuObj: Button = new Button({ cssClass: 'e-inherit', iconCss: 'e-icons e-menu' });
defaultButtonMenuObj.appendTo('#defaultButtonMenu');

const defaultButtonLoginObj: Button = new Button({ cssClass: 'e-inherit', content: 'FREE TRIAL' });
defaultButtonLoginObj.appendTo('#defaultButtonLogin');
