Breadcrumb

A breadcrumb displays the current location within a hierarchy. It allows going back to states higher up in the hierarchy.

When To Use#

  • When the system has more than two layers in a hierarchy.

  • When you need to inform the user of where they are.

  • When the user may need to navigate back to a higher level.

  • When the application has multi-layer architecture.

import { Breadcrumb } from 'antd';

ReactDOM.render(
  <Breadcrumb>
    <Breadcrumb.Item>Home</Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item>
      <a href="">Application Center</a>
    </Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item>
      <a href="">Application List</a>
    </Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item>An Application</Breadcrumb.Item>
  </Breadcrumb>,

expand codeexpand code
import { Router, Route, Link, hashHistory } from 'react-router';
import { Breadcrumb, Alert } from 'antd';

const Apps = () => (
  <ul className="app-list">
    <li>
      <Link to="/apps/1">Application1</Link><Link to="/apps/1/detail">Detail</Link>
    </li>
    <li>
      <Link to="/apps/2">Application2</Link><Link to="/apps/2/detail">Detail</Link>
    </li>
  </ul>
);

const Home = ({ routes, params, children }) => (
  <div className="demo">
    <div className="demo-nav">
      <Link to="/">Home</Link>
      <Link to="/apps">Application List</Link>
    </div>
    {children || 'Home Page'}
    <Alert style={{ margin: '16px 0' }} message="Click the navigation above to switch:" />
    <Breadcrumb routes={routes} params={params} />
  </div>
);

ReactDOM.render(
  <Router history={hashHistory}>
    <Route name="home" breadcrumbName="Home" path="/" component={Home}>
      <Route name="apps" breadcrumbName="Application List" path="apps" component={Apps}>
        <Route name="app" breadcrumbName="Application:id" path=":id">
          <Route name="detail" breadcrumbName="Detail" path="detail" />
        </Route>
      </Route>
    </Route>
  </Router>,
  mountNode,
);
.demo {
  margin: 16px;
}
.demo-nav {
  height: 30px;
  line-height: 30px;
  margin-bottom: 16px;

}
.demo-nav a {
  line-height: 30px;
  padding: 0 8px;
}

The separator can be customized by setting the separator property: separator=">"

expand codeexpand code
import { Breadcrumb } from 'antd';

ReactDOM.render(
  <Breadcrumb separator=">">
    <Breadcrumb.Item>Home</Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item href="">Application Center</Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item href="">Application List</Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item>An Application</Breadcrumb.Item>
  </Breadcrumb>,
  mountNode,
);
/Application List/Application/

The icon should be placed in front of the text.

expand codeexpand code
import { Breadcrumb, Icon } from 'antd';

ReactDOM.render(
  <Breadcrumb>
    <Breadcrumb.Item href="">
      <Icon type="home" />
    </Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item href="">
      <Icon type="user" />
      <span>Application List</span>
    </Breadcrumb.Item>
    <Breadcrumb.Item>Application</Breadcrumb.Item>
  </Breadcrumb>,
  mountNode,
);
