Ionic Buttons

The ionic framework contains several types of buttons. These buttons are an essential way to interact with and navigate through an app. It should also use to clearly communicate what action will occur when the user clicks on them. It can be used in the forms or anywhere that needs a simple, standard button functionality. The buttons can contain two things, which are text, icons, or both. It can also be enhanced with a variety of attributes to look a specific way. We can access buttons by using a standard <ion-button> </ion-button> element.

1. Block Buttons

Block button will always make the button take 100% width of its parent's container with a rounded corner.

2. Full Buttons

The full button will also make the button take 100% width of its parent's container. It also removes the button's left and right border. The Full button style is useful when the button needs to stretch across the entire width of the display.
