jQuery Mobile - Icon Positioning


You can determine the position of the icon (top, right, left, bottom in the button) using the ui-btn-icon-[value] class.


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

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Icon Setting</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 = "main" class = "ui-content">
         <a href = "" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-left">Left</a>
         <a href = "" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-right">Right</a>
         <a href = "" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-top">Top</a>
         <a href = "" class = "ui-btn ui-icon-home ui-btn-icon-bottom">Bottom</a>
