ion-title is a component that sets the title of the Toolbar.


<!-- Default title --><ion-toolbar>  <ion-title>Default Title</ion-title></ion-toolbar>
<!-- Small title above a default title --><ion-toolbar>  <ion-title size="small">Small Title above a Default Title</ion-title></ion-toolbar><ion-toolbar>  <ion-title>Default Title</ion-title></ion-toolbar>
<!-- Large title --><ion-toolbar>  <ion-title size="large">Large Title</ion-title></ion-toolbar>

Collapsible Large Titles#

Ionic provides a way to create the collapsible titles that exist on stock iOS apps. Getting this setup requires configuring your ion-title, ion-header, and (optionally) ion-buttons elements.

<ion-header translucent="true">  <ion-toolbar>    <ion-title>Settings</ion-title>  </ion-toolbar></ion-header>
<ion-content fullscreen="true">  <ion-header collapse="condense">    <ion-toolbar>      <ion-title size="large">Settings</ion-title>    </ion-toolbar>    <ion-toolbar>      <ion-searchbar></ion-searchbar>    </ion-toolbar>  </ion-header>

In the example above, notice there are two ion-header elements. The first ion-header represents the "collapsed" state of your collapsible header, and the second ion-header represents the "expanded" state of your collapsible header. Notice that the second ion-header must have collapse="condense" and must exist within ion-content. Additionally, in order to get the large title styling, ion-title must have size="large".

<ion-header translucent="true">  <ion-toolbar>    <ion-buttons collapse="true" slot="end">      <ion-button>Click Me</ion-button>    </ion-buttons>    <ion-title>Settings</ion-title>  </ion-toolbar></ion-header>
<ion-content fullscreen="true">  <ion-header collapse="condense">    <ion-toolbar>      <ion-buttons collapse="true" slot="end">        <ion-button>Click Me</ion-button>      </ion-buttons>      <ion-title size="large">Settings</ion-title>    </ion-toolbar>    <ion-toolbar>      <ion-searchbar></ion-searchbar>    </ion-toolbar>  </ion-header>

In this example, notice that we have added two sets of ion-buttons both with collapse set to true. When the secondary header collapses, the buttons in the secondary header will hide, and the buttons in the primary header will show. This is useful for ensuring that your header buttons always appear next to an ion-title element.

ion-buttons elements that do not have collapse set will always be visible, regardless of collapsed state. When using the large title and ion-buttons elements inside of ion-content, the ion-buttons elements should always be placed in the end slot.

When using collapsible large titles, it is required that fullscreen is set to true on ion-content and translucent is set to true on the main ion-header.

Styling Collapsible Large Titles#

The collapsible large title should appear seamless in relation to the rest of your content. This means that the background color of the ion-toolbar that contains the collapsible large title should always match the background color of ion-content.

By default, the ion-toolbar that contains the standard title is hidden using opacity: 0 and is progressively shown as you collapse the large title by scrolling. As a result, the background color that you see behind the standard title is actually the background color of ion-content.

You can change the background color of the toolbar with the standard title by setting the --background CSS variable on ion-toolbar. This will give the effect of the header changing color as you collapse the large title.

When styling the text color of the large title, you should target the large title globally as opposed to within the context of a particular page or tab, otherwise its styles will not be applied during the navigation animation.

ion-title.large-title {  color: purple;  font-size: 30px;}
