Ionic 5 Content Padding Example

  • Author: Techiediaries Team

In Ionic 5, there are some changes regarding how we set padding of the ion-content component.

We set the padding by using these CSS custom properties:

  • --padding-bottom Bottom padding of the content

  • --padding-end Right padding if direction is left-to-right, and left padding if direction is right-to-left of the content

  • --padding-start Left padding if direction is left-to-right, and right padding if direction is right-to-left of the content

  • --padding-top Top padding of the content

For example, in the SCSS file associated with your component, you need to add:

ion-content {
  --padding-bottom: 10px;
  --padding-end: 10px;
  --padding-start: 20px;
  --padding-top: 20px;
}

This should add padding inside the content area.

You need to replace the attributes Ionic 4 to CSS classes in Ionic 5. For example:

<ion-header text-center></ion-header>
<ion-content padding></ion-content>

Becomes:

<ion-header class="ion-text-center"></ion-header>
<ion-content class="ion-padding"></ion-content>

Or also

<ion-content color="primary" padding></ion-content>

Becomes:

<ion-content color="primary" class="ion-padding"></ion-content>
