Subnav

Defines different styles for a sub navigation.

Usage

To apply this component, use the following classes. To align a subnav, for example to horizontally center it, you can use the Flex component.

Class Description
.uk-subnav Add this class to a <ul> element to define the Subnav component. Use <a> elements as nav items within the list.
.uk-active Add this class to a list item to apply an active state.

To add list items without a link, use a <span> element instead of an <a>. Alternatively, disable an <a> element by adding the .uk-disabled class to the <li> element and remove the href attribute from the anchor to make it inaccessible through keyboard navigation.

<ul class="uk-subnav">
    <li class="uk-active"><a href=""></a></li>
    <li><a href=""></a></li>
    <li><span></span></li>
</ul>
  • <ul class="uk-subnav" uk-margin>
        <li class="uk-active"><a href="#">Active</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><span>Disabled</span></li>
    </ul>

Note For a better layout, if items should wrap into the next row, add the uk-margin attribute from the Margin component.


Divider modifier

Add the .uk-subnav-divider class to separate menu items with lines.

<ul class="uk-subnav uk-subnav-divider">...</ul>
  • <ul class="uk-subnav uk-subnav-divider" uk-margin>
        <li class="uk-active"><a href="#">Active</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
    </ul>

Pill modifier

Add the .uk-subnav-pill class to highlight the active menu item with a background.

<ul class="uk-subnav uk-subnav-pill">...</ul>
  • <ul class="uk-subnav uk-subnav-pill" uk-margin>
        <li class="uk-active"><a href="#">Active</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
    </ul>

You can also use a dropdown from the Dropdown component with a subnav.

<ul class="uk-subnav">
    <li>
        <a href=""></a>
        <div uk-dropdown="mode: click;"></div>
    </li>
</ul>
  • <ul class="uk-subnav uk-subnav-pill" uk-margin>
        <li class="uk-active"><a href="#">Active</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
        <li>
            <a href="#">More <span uk-icon="icon:  triangle-down"></span></a>
            <div uk-dropdown="mode: click;">
                <ul class="uk-nav uk-dropdown-nav">
                    <li class="uk-active"><a href="#">Active</a></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
                    <li class="uk-nav-header">Header</li>
                    <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
                    <li class="uk-nav-divider"></li>
                    <li><a href="#">Item</a></li>
                </ul>
            </div>
        </li>
    </ul>
