Aww yeah, Material-UI v4 is here!

IconButton API

The API documentation of the IconButton React component. Learn more about the properties and the CSS customization points.

import IconButton from '@material-ui/core/IconButton';

Refer to the Icons section of the documentation regarding the available icon options.


Name Type Default Description
children node The icon element.
classes object Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
color enum: 'default' |
 'inherit' |
 'primary' |
'default' The color of the component. It supports those theme colors that make sense for this component.
disabled bool false If true, the button will be disabled.
disableRipple bool If true, the ripple will be disabled.

Any other properties supplied will be spread to the root element (ButtonBase).


You can override all the class names injected by Material-UI thanks to the classes property. This property accepts the following keys:

Name Description
root Styles applied to the root element.
colorInherit Styles applied to the root element if color="inherit".
colorPrimary Styles applied to the root element if color="primary".
colorSecondary Styles applied to the root element if color="secondary".
disabled Styles applied to the root element if disabled={true}.
label Styles applied to the children container element.

Have a look at overriding with classes section and the implementation of the component for more detail.

If using the overrides key of the theme, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiIconButton.


The properties of the ButtonBase component are also available. You can take advantage of this behavior to target nested components.
