jQuery Mobile - Black and White Icon Sets


You can change the color of an icon to black using the ui-alt-icon class. By default, all icons are white.


Following example describes the use of changing icon color in the jQuery Mobile Framework.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Black and White Icons</title>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>
      <div data-role = "page" id = "page1">
         <div data-role = "header">

         <div data-role = "main" class = "ui-content">
            <a href = "" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-left 
               ui-corner-all">White icon</a>
            <a href = "" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-inline ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-left 
               ui-corner-all ui-alt-icon">Black icon</a>

         <div data-role = "footer">
