Overview

The ASP.NET MVC Breadcrumb is a graphical user interface that serves as a navigation header for your web application or site. It helps to identify or highlight the current location within the hierarchical structure of a website. It has several built-in features such as templates, icons, binding to location, overflow mode, and UI customizations.


Users tend to perceive visual information better than text. Include icons or sprite images to the right or left of the breadcrumb items to provide a visual representation of their corresponding actions.


UI customization with templates

Templates are used to create custom user experiences. Breadcrumb provides a template for each breadcrumb item and its separator to customize or change the appearance of the entire Breadcrumb UI with HTML elements or other components.


Limit items with overflow mode

Overflow mode limits the number of items to be displayed in the view when the container width exceeds a breadcrumb item’s width or maximum item count. The following are the different overflow modes supported in the Breadcrumb component.

Default mode

This mode shows the maximum number of items possible in the container space and hides the remaining items. Clicking on a previous item will make the hidden item visible.

Collapsed mode

This mode shows the first and last breadcrumb items and hides the remaining items with a collapsed icon. When the collapsed icon is clicked, all items become visible and navigable.


Bind to location

Breadcrumb items can be automatically generated based on the current location of the user within the website or by providing a URL to the Breadcrumb component. The auto generated items can be customized using templates and item render events.


Accessibility

  • Fully supports WAI-ARIA accessibility practices to work with screen readers and assistive devices.
  • Follows WAI-ARIA best practices for implementing keyboard interaction.
  • Based on WCAG 2.0 standards, we designed the UI element visuals such as foreground color, background color, line spacing, text, and images.
  • Supports right-to-left (RTL) text direction for users working in right-to-left languages like Hebrew, Arabic, or Persian.

Developer-friendly API

Developers can control the appearance and behaviors of the Breadcrumb component using a rich set of APIs.

Built-in themes

The ASP.NET MVC Breadcrumb supports several built-in themes such as Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), and high contrast. Users can customize any one of these built-in themes or create new themes to achieve their own desired look and feel either by simply overriding SASS variables or using our Theme Studio application.


Other supported frameworks

The Breadcrumb component is also available in Blazor, JavaScript, Angular, React, and Vue frameworks. Check it out on other platforms at the links below:
