    Default Answered: Styling the back button

    I am building an app and have used the navigationview component which dynamically creates a Back button when opening a new page.

    I would like to style the toolbar so I have employed the sencha-toolbar-ui and sencha-button-ui @includes in my SASS file.

    However, the Back button is not displaying the correct style. How do I get the custom style applied to the Back button without creating custom CSS?

    Thanks.

  2. The back button has the ui config set to back. To change it you can do:

    Code:
    {
        navigationBar : {
            backButton : {
                align   : 'left',
                hidden  : true,
                ui      : '...........'
            }
        }
    }

    Hi Mitchell, thanks for responding.

    I have tried your advice and it successfully applies my custom colour scheme.
    However, it has removed the nice arrow shaped border that the Back button has.
    Do you know if there is a way of keeping the arrow shape for the Back button whilst applying a custom theme?

    Many thanks

    You need to extend the back ui and apply your custom colors

    I got it to work by doing this:

    backButton: {
    ui: 'customThemeName-back'
    }

    I didn't know you could concatonate different styles to make 'customThemeName-back', but it works!

    Thanks for your help.
