navbar

Basic Navbar Navbar is a sticky container for secondary page navigation. Important Notes: The title can be turned into a link by passing link attributes. Demo
Twig
// Set up the navbar items {% set navbar_items %} {% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar-li.twig' with { link: { content: 'Section 1', attributes: { href: '#section-1' } } } only %} {% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar-li.twig' with { link: { content: 'Section 2', attributes: { href: '#section-2' } } } only %} ... {% endset %} {% set navbar_list %} {% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar-ul.twig' with { content: navbar_items, } only %} {% endset %} // Pass the navbar items to the navbar template {% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { title: { content: 'This is the navbar title', icon: { name: 'marketing-gray' }, link: { attributes: { href: 'https://pega.com' }, }, }, links: navbar_list } only %}

Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { spacing: 'medium', ... } only %}
HTML

navbar center

Center Alignment Navbar has a style variant that allows the title and links to be center aligned horizontally. Important Notes: It is recommended to set the spacing prop to xsmall when using the center prop. Demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { center: true, spacing: 'xsmall', ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar width

Auto Width By default the navbar takes up the full width of the viewport, but the width can be set to auto as well. Demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { width: 'auto', ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar static

Static Use the static prop to disable Navbar's default sticky position. Demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { static: true, ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar theme

Color Themes All color themes are available for use in the navbar while dark is the default. Important Notes: If the theme prop is set to none, the navbar will have a transparent background. Reference the schema for all options. Navbar schema Demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { theme: 'light', ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar hide title text

Visually Hide the Title text at Specific Breakpoints The navbar title text can be visually hidden at specific breakpoints. This is useful when working with a navbar that has a lot of links. Important Notes: This option is best combined with the center alignment. Reference the schema for all options. Navbar schema Demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { title: { ... hide_text: 'from-xsmall-bp', }, center: true, ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar scroll offset

Scroll Offset Scroll offset can be used when you want to offset the target scroll position of each navbar link. When a navbar link is pressed, the page will scroll down to the repsective anchor. The offset adds a specific pixel value on top of it. Demo View full page demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { scroll_offset: 16, // Adds a specific pixel value to the smooth scroll position of each section of the page. ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar sticky offset

Sticky Offset When there are multiple sticky elements on the same page, sticky offset can be used to prevent sticky elements from overlapping each other. Important Notes: The Navbar component already accounts for the sticky Page Header component, it is not necessary to pass Page Header’s selector to sticky_offset_selector. While sticky_offset_selector can automatically calculate the dynamic height of a specific element, the sticky_offset can offset a specific pixel value manually. You may choose to use that instead if you need an absolute value. Ideally, the two props are not used in tandem. Demo View full page demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { sticky_offset_selector: '#js-sticky-target', // Adds the height of the other sticky element to the top position of the sticky navbar. ... } only %}
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar multiple

Multiple Navbars When there are multiple navbars on the same page, in order for one to push off another, the navbars cannot be siblings in the markup. They must be contained within separate elements. Important Notes: If the navbars are siblings, they will overlap each other. In such case, reference sticky offset to avoid overlapping. Demo View full page demo
Twig
<section> {% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { ... } only %} // Content goes here </section> <section> {% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { ... } only %} // Content goes here </section>
HTML
Not available in plain HTML. Please use Twig.

navbar custom content

Custom Navbar A completely custom navbar can be built if neccessary. Important Notes: The content prop completely overrides the title and links props. Since this is still a navbar, it is recommended that the custom content contains links. Demo
Twig
{% include '@bolt-components-navbar/navbar.twig' with { content: custom_content, ... } only %}
