Learn how to create and use the Ionic Badge component in your Ionic 4 application.

Instructor: [00:00] Ionic has a badge component that we can apply to our application. The component is simply ion-badge. This component is an inline element, meaning that we can compose it within other components.

[00:10] For example, we can add a badge component to our tab bar. Here's a default tab template. This is the base HTML that defines the three tab buttons. We'll add an ion-badge component within the ion-tab button component.

[00:25] We can set the color attribute to one of the predefined values, say secondary. Since I have ionic serve already running, once I save, my application will automatically recompile and reload. There. Now you can see the badge applied right within our tabs content.

[00:44] Ion-badges can also be used with list items. Switching back to the code and to the template for tab one, let's add an ion-badge to one of the list items. Saving. Returning back to our browser, we can now see the badge being shown.
