jQuery Mobile - Navbars in Footers


To add the navbar to the page's bottom, wrap, use the navbar within a container with a data-role = "footer" attribute.


Following example demonstrates the use of navbar in footer in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Navbars in footers</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 = "footer" style = "overflow:hidden;">
         <h2>This is Footer</h2>
         <div data-role = "navbar">
               <li><a href = "#" class = "ui-btn-active">Home</a></li>
               <li><a href = "#">About Us</a></li>
               <li><a href = "#">Contact Us</a></li>
