Today lets see how we can add details arrow or the right arrow icon to our list items in Ionic 2.

Ionic uses modes to customize the look of components. Each platform has a default mode, but this can be overridden. For example, an app being viewed on an Android platform will use the md (Material Design) mode. The < ion -app > tag(in index.html) will have class=”md” added to it by default and all of the components will use Material Design styles:

index.html

< ion-app class="md">

Default Modes used on different platforms
ios devices – ios mode.
android devices – md(Material Design) mode.
windows devices – wp mode.

In ios mode, buttons and anchor elements with ion-item attribute will display right arrow icon by default. If you want to remove this right icon you should add detail-none attribute to your elements.

Note:
1. For removing right arrow icon use detail-none attribute on your elements.
2. To add right arrow icon use detail-push attribute on your elements.

If the arrow still doesn’t display, you need to overriding some variables inside src/theme/variables.scss file.

For iOS Mode: iOS devices

$item-ios-detail-push-show: true;

For md mode: android devices

$item-md-detail-push-show: true;

For wp mode: Windows Devices

$item-wp-detail-push-show: true;

Important:
If you are previewing or testing your ionic 2 application using Chrome browser on Windows machine, then set variable $item-wp-detail-push-show also to true or else simply set the one applicable to your target device.

src/pages/home/home.ts

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({

  templateUrl: 'home.html'

export class HomePage {
  companies: any;
  constructor(public navCtrl: NavController) {
    this.companies = [
      {name: 'Microsoft', code: 1},
      {name: 'Apple', code: 2},
      {name: 'Google', code: 3},
