Avatar Appearance

The Аvatar allows you to set different styles based on its content.

The available types are:

  • Image—By passing an img element as child element of the Avatar.
  • Text avatar (Default)—By passing a string that will be rendered as text (initials).

All of the types can be rendered in a different shape by setting the rounded property.

The available rounded values are:

  • "full" (default)—Renders a circle shape avatar.
  • "small"—Renders an avatar with small border radius.
  • "medium"—Renders an avatar with meduim border radius.
  • "large"—Renders an avatar with large border radius.
  • null—Renders an avatar with no border radius (square avatar).

    <div id="avatar"></div>

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $("#avatar").kendoAvatar({
                rounded: null,
                type: 'text',
                text: "IMG"
            });
        });
    </script>

            $("#avatar").kendoAvatar({
                themeColor: 'success'
            });
        });
    </script>

Size

The Avatar allows you to set predefined or custom sizes. To specify a predefined size, set the size property.

The available size values are:

  • "small"
  • "medium" (Default)
  • "large"
  • null

To specify a custom avatar size, use the style property.

    <p>Avatar Predefined Sizes</p>
    <div id="avatar"></div>

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $("#avatar").kendoAvatar({
                size: 'large'
            });
        });
    </script>

FillMode

The Avatar enables you to set styling options and create solid or outline avatars by setting the fillMode property.

The available fillMode values are:

  • "solid" (Default)
  • "outline"
  • null

An additional border around the content of an outline avatar can be rendered by setting the border property to true.

    <div id="avatar"></div>

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $("#avatar").kendoAvatar({
                fillMode: 'outline'
            });
        });
    </script>

Border

The Avatar allows you to specify whether or not to render an additional border around its content by using the border property. By default, the border is set to false.

    <div id="avatar"></div>

    <script>
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $("#avatar").kendoAvatar({
                border: true
            });
        });
    </script>
