Simple container for headers, titles, actions and breadcrumbs.

adf toolbar 01


Basic Usage

<adf-toolbar title="Toolbar">
    <button mat-icon-button>
    <button mat-icon-button>


You can set the title content using an <adf-toolbar-title> element (although you can also set a simple textual title with the title attribute). All other content in the toolbar is free-form but you can use one or more <adf-toolbar-divider> elements between your own elements to add a visual separator. Also, any content following a <div> element with the CSS class adf-toolbar--spacer will be pushed across to the right-hand side of the toolbar:

        <adf-breadcrumb ...></adf-breadcrumb>



    <div class="adf-toolbar--spacer"></div>


For example, the image below shows a toolbar with a Breadcrumb component title, and then some buttons pushed to the right by a spacer:

Dropdown menu

The following example shows how to create a dropdown menu. The code is based on the <mat-menu> component from the @angular/material library but you could also use your own custom menu components:

<adf-toolbar title="Toolbar">

    <button mat-icon-button [matMenuTriggerFor]="menu">
    <mat-menu #menu="matMenu">
        <button mat-menu-item>
        <button mat-menu-item disabled>
            <span>Check voicemail</span>
        <button mat-menu-item>
            <span>Disable alerts</span>

adf toolbar 03

With the menu set up like this, you would see the following menu items as defined earlier when you click the menu button:
