Header Implementation

The sbb-header component is a container for actions and a logo, and it is displayed at the top of the page.


It has two slots:
the first one can contain one or more sbb-header-action
or other action items like sbb-button or sbb-link,
and it is displayed at the left end of the component; the second slot is displayed at the right end,
and it can contain a logo, which by default is the sbb-logo.

  <sbb-header-action icon-name="hamburger-menu-small" href="https://sbb.ch/somewhere"
  <sbb-header-action icon-name="magnifying-glass-small">Search</sbb-header-action>


Setting the expanded property will cause the sbb-header component to take up the full width of the page.

The height of the header can be overridden by re-defining the css variable --sbb-header-height.
To avoid that tabbed/focused elements get hidden behind the header,
it's recommended to set on the <html> tag the CSS property scroll-padding-top to var(--sbb-header-height) or to a greater value.
With this, it's ensured that content will be visible all the time.

The default z-index of the component is set to 10; to specify a custom stack order, the z-index can
be changed by defining the CSS variable --sbb-header-z-index.

Positioning and visibility

By default, the sbb-header has a fixed position at the top of the page;
when the page is scrolled down, a box-shadow appears below it and the component remains visible.
It's possible to change this behavior by setting the hideOnScroll property to true, or adding the hide-on-scroll
attribute: in this case, the box-shadow is still set, but the component disappears when the page is scrolled down and
then reappears as soon as it's scrolled up. It's also possible to bind this behaviour to something other than the document,
using the scrollOrigin property, which accepts an HTMLElement or the id of the element to search for.

<sbb-header expanded hideOnScroll>
  <sbb-header-action icon-name="magnifying-glass-small">Search</sbb-header-action>
  <a href="https://www.sbb.ch" slot="logo">
    <sbb-logo protective-room="none"></sbb-logo>


Users can customize position and behaviour of actions inside the sbb-header component
by adding classes to sbb-header-action elements and then defining their own style rules.

All the examples in Storybook have the following requirements:

  • four action items (with custom icons);
  • the first item is always left aligned and has expand-from set to small;
  • the other three items are left aligned in breakpoints zero to medium, and right aligned from large to ultra;
  • the last item is not visible in breakpoints zero to small.

To achieve this result, a div tag with a CSS class named sbb-header-spacer was added between the first
and the second sbb-header-action item, then a class named last-element was added to the last one.
Finally, the following custom CSS has been added(*). The result can be seen in the home and home--logged-in stories.

.last-element {
  display: none;

@media screen and (width >= 840px) {
  .last-element {
    display: block;

@media screen and (width < 1024px) {
  .sbb-header-spacer {
    display: none;

Content overflow

If a certain sbb-header-action should be shrunken (receive ellipsis) when there is too little space,
set the CSS class sbb-header-shrinkable on the desired sbb-header-action.

<sbb-header shadow="true">
  <sbb-header-action class="sbb-header-shrinkable"
    >Christina Müller has a long name</sbb-header-action

(*) Technical note: Due the presence of media-query rules, it was not possible to add those rules directly
in the component's stories (see also this Storybook issue),
so they were wrapped into a style tag and added to the Storybook's configuration file named preview-head.html.
