AppBar

The AppBar showcases information and actions relevant to the current screen. Within the AppBar settings, you have the option to activate or deactivate the AppBar for new pages. It's enabled by default, automatically adding an AppBar to every new page you create. Additionally, you can personalize the default AppBar by altering its display style and customizing its overall look and feel.

Changes made on this page will only reflect on the AppBar of new pages. To override the defaults and make changes to any specific AppBar of the page, follow the instructions here.

AppBar

Changing AppBar type

There are four types of AppBar you can choose from:

  1. Large Header: This is the default AppBar that comes with only the page title.

  2. Large Header -> Back Button: This type of AppBar shows the back button with 'Back' text and a page title below the back button.

  3. Back Button -> Center Title: This type of AppBar displays the back button on the left and the page title in the center.

  4. Back Button -> Left Title: This type of AppBar shows the back button and a page title on the left.

To change the AppBar type, navigate to Settings and Integrations > General > NavBar & AppBar > App Bar > simply select the Type of AppBar you want.

Styling AppBar

You can use the various settings available under the styling section to customize the default AppBar.

Tip: you can enhance your customization options by using a Row or Column inside your AppBar.

  1. Navigate to the Settings and Integrations > General > NavBar & AppBar > App Bar > Icon.

  2. To change the icon, click on the Arrow Back Rounded <- button and then search and select the new icon.

Control responsive visibility of AppBar on new pages

You can configure the AppBar to show or hide automatically on new pages in response to different display conditions, such as on a mobile phone versus a tablet. This functionality is particularly useful for creating a user interface that adapts to various screen sizes.

For example, on some screen size, you might choose to hide the AppBar for a cleaner layout. Rather than manually adjusting the AppBar's visibility on each new page, you can set the responsive visibility just once here.
