To build intuitive user interfaces, icons can be used in addition to textual descriptions. Therefore map.apps provides a variety of icons based on a webfont. These can be used in different ways through:

  • configuration of the iconClass property (for example on a toolset in app.json)

  • setting the iconClass property inside the manifest.json for a custom bundle

  • adding the icon’s name as class attribute to an HTML element in a custom widget template

  • setting the content attribute accordingly for a custom HTML element

The Icon-Overview page provides a quick reference on the available icons, their names and their content attributes value.

The bundle font-mapapps which is responsible for providing the web-font is loaded automatically with any map.apps layout theme.
