Angular Material 7 - Toolbar

The <mat-toolbar>, an Angular Directive, is used to create a toolbar to show title, header or any action button.

  • <mat-toolbar> - Represents the main container.

  • <mat-toolbar-row> - Add a new row.

In this chapter, we will showcase the configuration required to draw a toolbar control using Angular Material.

Create Angular Application

Follow the following steps to update the Angular application we created in Angular 6 - Project Setup chapter −

Step Description
1 Create a project with a name materialApp as explained in the Angular 6 - Project Setup chapter.
2 Modify app.module.ts, app.component.ts, app.component.css and app.component.html as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3 Compile and run the application to verify the result of the implemented logic.

Following is the content of the modified module descriptor app.module.ts.

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import {BrowserAnimationsModule} from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import {MatToolbarModule} from '@angular/material'
import {FormsModule, ReactiveFormsModule} from '@angular/forms';
   declarations: [
   imports: [
   providers: [],
   bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Following is the content of the modified CSS file app.component.css.

.filler {
   flex: 1 1 auto;
.gap {
   margin-right: 10px;

Following is the content of the modified HTML host file app.component.html.

<mat-toolbar color = "primary">
   <span class = "gap">File</span>
   <span class = "filler"></span>


Verify the result.
