Web Components Switch

    The Ignite UI for Web Components Switch component is a binary choice selection component that behaves similarly to the switch component in iOS.

    Web Components Switch Example


    At its core, the IgcSwitchComponent component allows for toggling between on/off states. The default styling is done according to the selection controls specification in the Material Design guidelines.

    First, you need to install the Ignite UI for Web Components by running the following command:

    npm install igniteui-webcomponents

    You will then need to import the IgcSwitchComponent, its necessary CSS, and register its module, like so:

    import { defineComponents, IgcSwitchComponent } from "igniteui-webcomponents";
    import 'igniteui-webcomponents/themes/light/bootstrap.css';

    For a complete introduction to the Ignite UI for Web Components, read the Getting Started topic.

    The simplest way to start using the IgcSwitchComponent is as follows:


    [!WARNING] The IgcSwitchComponent component doesn't work with the standard <form> element. Use IgcFormComponent instead.



    To provide a meaningful label for the switch, simply place some text between the opening and closing tags:


    You can specify if the label should be positioned before or after the switch toggle by setting the labelPosition attribute of the switch. Allowed values are before and after(default):

    <igc-switch label-position="before">Label</igc-switch>

    The switch can also be labelled by elements external to the switch. In this case, the user is given full control to position and style the label in accordance with their needs.

    <span id="switch-label">Label</span>
    <igc-switch aria-labelledby="switch-label"></igc-switch>


    You can use the checked attribute to toggle on the switch.

    <igc-switch checked></igc-switch>


    You can use the required attribute to mark the switch as required.

    <igc-switch required></igc-switch>


    You can use the invalid attribute to mark the switch as invalid.

    <igc-switch invalid></igc-switch>


    You can use the disabled attribute to disable the switch.

    <igc-switch disabled></igc-switch>


    You can use the name and value attributes when using the switch with IgcFormComponent.

    <igc-switch name="wifi" value="enabled"></igc-switch>


    The switch component exposes several CSS parts (base, control, thumb, and label) to give you full control over its styling.

    igc-switch::part(control) {
      background: beige;
      border-radius: 0;
    igc-switch::part(thumb) {
      background: olive;
      border-radius: 2px;
      box-shadow: none;
