Native Mobile - Style Header

0
Hi, I'm trying to find out how styling for Native Mobile apps work, this guide is helping a lot, but I can't seem to figure out how to style the Header of a Native Page. I cannot find this element/widget in the documentation. I'm talking about the header you can enable in the layout properties What ClassName should I use to style the header? Thanks!

You can also look inside Atlas files and check how we at Mendix are styling header and all the other widgets.

Please navigate to theme/native and check the files inside core folder.

The best way to customize the topbar is to go to the file `theme/styles/native/app/custom-variables.js` and replace the following code:

// Navigation Styles
export const navigation = {
    topBar: {
        backgroundColor: background.primary,
        backButtonColor: contrast.highest,
        titleColor: contrast.highest,
    },
    bottomBar: {
        color: contrast.high,
        selectedColor: brand.primary,
        backgroundColor: background.primary,
    },
};

with

// Navigation Styles
export const navigation = {
    statusBar: {
        backgroundColor: background.primary,
        barStyle: darkMode ? "light-content" : "dark-content",
    },
    topBar: {
        backgroundColor: background.primary,
        backButtonColor: contrast.highest,
        titleColor: contrast.highest,
        titleFontSize: font.sizeH5,
    },
    bottomBar: {
        color: contrast.high,
        selectedTextColor: contrast.high,
        selectedIconColor: brand.primary,
        backgroundColor: background.primary,
        fontSize: font.sizeSmall,
        iconSize: font.sizeSmall,
    },
    progressOverlay: {
        color: "#FFF",
        activityIndicatorColor: "#FFF",
        backgroundColor: `rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5)`,
        fontSize: font.size,
    },
};


And change the values as desired :)  (The updated custom variables will be in the next Atlas release)

 

Alternatively you can also copy the complete default styling from `theme/styles/native/core/widgets/navigation.js` to `theme/styles/native/app/custom.js` and change/update it there.
