The React 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 understand 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 the maximum item count. The following are the different overflow modes supported in the React Breadcrumb component.

Menu mode shows the number of Breadcrumb items that can be accommodated within the container space and creates a submenu with the remaining items.

Collapsed mode

Collapsed 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.

Wrap mode

Wrap mode wraps the items to multiple lines when the Breadcrumb’s width exceeds the container space.

Scroll mode

Scroll mode shows an HTML scroll bar when the Breadcrumb’s width exceeds the container space.

Hidden mode

Hidden 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.

None mode

None mode shows all the items on a single line.

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.

Note: The previous sample is hosted in a different location and Breadcrumb items are generated based on it.


  • 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 APIs

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

Built-in themes

The React Breadcrumb supports built-in themes such as Bootstrap 5, Tailwind CSS, Fluent, high contrast, and more. Users can customize these built-in themes or create new themes to achieve the desired look and feel either by simply overriding SASS variables or using the Theme Studio application.

Other supported frameworks

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

We do not sell the React Breadcrumb separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion team license. This contains over 1,800 components and frameworks, including the React Breadcrumb. The price of the team license starts at $395 per month for 5 developers, and includes support and updates until the subscription expires. In addition, we might offer discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our product specialists today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our React Breadcrumb demo, which demonstrates how to render and configure the Breadcrumb.

No, our 1,800+ components and frameworks for web, mobile, and desktop, including our React Breadcrumb, are not sold individually. They are only available as part of a team license. However, we have competitively priced the product, so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Breadcrumb component alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 1,800+ components and frameworks for a subscription fee that starts at $395 per month for a team of 5 developers. Additionally, we might be able to offer discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our product specialists today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue, 5 or fewer developers, and 10 or fewer total employees.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
