2 May 20238 minutes to read

The Breadcrumb component provides a way to customize the items using itemTemplate and the separators using separatorTemplate properties.

Item Template

In the following example, Shopping Cart details are used as breadcrumb Items and the each items is rendered as chips component using itemTemplate.

import { BreadcrumbItemModel, Breadcrumb } from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

//Breadcrumb items definition

const items: BreadcrumbItemModel[] = [
    {
        text: 'Cart'
    },
    {
        text: 'Billing'
    },
    {
        text: 'Shipping'
    },
    {
        text: 'Payment'
    }
];

new Breadcrumb({
    items: items,
    enableNavigation: false,
    itemTemplate: '<div id="chip-default" class="e-lib e-chip-list e-control e-chip-set" role="listbox" aria-multiselectable="false"><div class="e-chip e-primary" tabindex="0" role="option" aria-label="Apple" aria-selected="false"><span class="e-chip-text">${text}</span></div></div>'
}, '#breadcrumb');

Separator Template

In the following example, the separators are customized with icons using separatorTemplate. While rendering the separator template, you can get the previous and next item using previousItem and nextItem variables, respectively.

import { BreadcrumbItemModel, Breadcrumb } from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

//Breadcrumb items definition

const items: BreadcrumbItemModel[] = [
    {
        text: 'Cart'
    },
    {
        text: 'Billing'
    },
    {
        text: 'Shipping'
    },
    {
        text: 'Payment'
    }
];

new Breadcrumb({
    items: items,
    enableNavigation: false,
    separatorTemplate: '<span class="e-icons e-bullet-arrow"></span>'
}, '#breadcrumb');

Customize Specific Item Template

The specific breadcrumb item can be customizable using itemTemplate with conditional rendering. In the following example, added the span element only for the breadcrumb text in breadcrumb item.

import { BreadcrumbItemModel, Breadcrumb } from '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);


var specificTemplateItems = [
{
    text: "Home",
    url: "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/demos",
},
{
    text: "Components",
    url: "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/demos/#/material/grid/grid-overview",
},
{
    text: "Navigations",
    url: "https://ej2.syncfusion.com/demos/#/material/menu/default",
},
{
    text: "Breadcrumb",
    url: "./breadcrumb/default",
}
];

new Breadcrumb({
    items: specificTemplateItems,
    itemTemplate: '<div>${if(text=="Breadcrumb")}<span class="e-searchfor-text"><span style="margin-right: 5px">Search for:</span><a class="e-breadcrumb-text" href="${url}" onclick="return false">${text}</a></span>${else}<a class="e-breadcrumb-text" href="${url}" onclick="return false">${text}</a>${/if}</div>',
    cssClass: 'e-specific-item-template'
}, '#breadcrumb');
