Bottom Navigation

Bottom navigation bars allow movement between primary destinations in an app.

Bottom navigation bars display three to five destinations at the bottom of a screen. Each destination is represented by an icon and an optional text label. When a bottom navigation icon is tapped, the user is taken to the top-level navigation destination associated with that icon.

Bottom Navigation

When there are only three actions, display both icons and text labels at all times.

  onChange={(event, newValue) => {
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Recents" icon={<RestoreIcon />} />
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Favorites" icon={<FavoriteIcon />} />
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Nearby" icon={<LocationOnIcon />} />

Bottom Navigation with no label

If there are four or five actions, display inactive views as icons only.

<BottomNavigation value={value} onChange={handleChange} className={classes.root}>
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Recents" value="recents" icon={<RestoreIcon />} />
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Favorites" value="favorites" icon={<FavoriteIcon />} />
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Nearby" value="nearby" icon={<LocationOnIcon />} />
  <BottomNavigationAction label="Folder" value="folder" icon={<FolderIcon />} />
