jQuery Mobile - Grouped Buttons


You can use data-role="controlgroup" and data-type="horizontal" attributes to group buttons into a set of button and wrap the links within an element.


Following example demonstrates the use of grouped buttons in jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <title>Grouped Buttons</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 = "header">
         <div data-role = "controlgroup" data-type = "horizontal" class = "ui-mini ui-btn-left">
            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-icon-right ui-icon-gear">Options</a>
            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-icon-right ui-icon-plus">Add</a>
            <a href = "#" class = "ui-btn ui-btn-icon-right ui-icon-grid">grid</a>


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

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

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