Window Customization

Tauri provides lots of options for customizing the look and feel of your app's window. You can create custom titlebars, have transparent windows, enforce size constraints, and more.

Configuration#

There are three ways to change the window configuration:

Creating a Custom Titlebar#

A common use of these window features is creating a custom titlebar. This short tutorial will guide you through that process.

CSS#

You'll need to add some CSS for the titlebar to keep it at the top of the screen and style the buttons:

.titlebar {
  height: 30px;
  background: #329ea3;
  user-select: none;
  display: flex;
  justify-content: flex-end;
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  right: 0;
}
.titlebar-button {
  display: inline-flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  width: 30px;
  height: 30px;
}
.titlebar-button:hover {
  background: #5bbec3;
}

HTML#

Now, you'll need to add the HTML for the titlebar. Put this at the top of your <body> tag:

<div class="titlebar" data-tauri-drag-region>
  <div class="titlebar-button" id="titlebar-minimize">
    <img
      src="https://api.iconify.design/mdi:window-minimize.svg"
      alt="minimize"
    />
  </div>
  <div class="titlebar-button" id="titlebar-maximize">
    <img
      src="https://api.iconify.design/mdi:window-maximize.svg"
      alt="maximize"
    />
  </div>
  <div class="titlebar-button" id="titlebar-close">
    <img src="https://api.iconify.design/mdi:close.svg" alt="close" />
  </div>
</div>

Note that you may need to move the rest of your content down so that the titlebar doesn't cover it.

JS#

Finally, you'll need to make the buttons work:

import { appWindow } from '@tauri-apps/api/window'
document
  .getElementById('titlebar-minimize')
  .addEventListener('click', () => appWindow.minimize())
document
  .getElementById('titlebar-maximize')
  .addEventListener('click', () => appWindow.maximize())
document
  .getElementById('titlebar-close')
  .addEventListener('click', () => appWindow.close())
