HTML-Markup kopiert.

The component represents a link element contained by the sbb-header component.


It is possible to provide a label via an unnamed slot; the component can optionally display a sbb-icon
at the component start using the iconName property or via custom content using the icon slot.

<sbb-header-link href="#">Text</sbb-header-link>

<sbb-header-link href="#" icon-name="pie-small">Another text</sbb-header-link>

If the component's icon is set, the property expandFrom can be used to define the minimum breakpoint
from which the label is displayed; below that, only the icon is visible.

<sbb-header-link href="#" expand-from="medium">Text</sbb-header-link>

Link properties

The component is internally rendered as a link,
accepting its associated properties (href, target, rel and download).
