The v-toolbar component is pivotal to any gui, as it generally is the primary source of site navigation. The toolbar component works great in conjunction with v-navigation-drawer and v-card.


A toolbar is a flexible container that can be used in a number of ways. By default, the toolbar is 64px high on desktop and 56px high on mobile. There are a number of helper components available to use with the toolbar. The v-toolbar-title is used for displaying a title and v-toolbar-items allow v-btn to extend full height.



Prominent toolbars

Prominent toolbars increase the v-toolbar's height to 128px and positions the v-toolbar-title towards the bottom of the container. This is expanded upon in v-app with the ability to shrink a prominent toolbar to a dense or short one.

Dense toolbars

Dense toolbars reduce their height to 48px. When using in conjunction with the prominent prop, will reduce height to 96px.

Light and Dark

Toolbars come in 2 variants, light and dark. Light toolbars have dark tinted buttons and dark text whereas dark toolbars have white tinted buttons and white text.


A v-toolbar has multiple variations that can be applied with themes and helper classes. These range from light and dark themes, colored and transparent.

Prominent w/ Background

Toolbars can display a background as opposed to a solid color. This can be modified by using the img slot and providing your own v-img component. Backgrounds can be faded using a v-app-bar.


Toolbars can be extended without using the extension slot.

Extension height

The extension's height can be customized.


Toolbars can be collapsed to save screen space.

Flexible toolbar and card toolbar

In this example we offset our card onto the extended content area of a toolbar using the extended prop.

Contextual action bars

It is possible to update the appearance of a toolbar in response to changes in app state. In this example, the color and content of the toolbar changes in response to user selections in the v-select.
