jQuery Mobile - Navbars with Button Elements


Instead of using links inside the navbar, you can also use button elements.


Following example demonstrates the use of navbar with button in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Navbars with button elements</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 = "navbar" data-iconpos = "left">
            <li><button data-icon = "star">Button One</button></li>
            <li><button data-icon = "arrow-l" data-theme = "b">Button Two</button></li>
            <li><button data-icon = "arrow-r">Button Three</button></li>


Let's carry out the following steps to see how the above code works −

  • Save the above html code as navbar_with_button.html file in your server root folder.

  • Open this HTML file as http://localhost/navbar_with_button.html and the following output will be displayed.
