Ability to add custom directive as an thumbnail in ion-item


Using item-thumbnail-left works fine in ion-item if the thumbnail is (indeed) an image :
<ion-item class="item-thumbnail-left item-button-right"> <img src="myimage.png" /> </ion-item>

but, is there a way to make this work using non img tag ?


many thanks in advance,


Yup, just add the class item-image to the div


Thanks Mike. Works like a charm!

Could you elaborate how you’ve figured out which class was meant to be added, as I’m facing similar issue on other topics ?

for example, adding an element to the right of a ion-header-bar only works for button element, but what if I just want to use another directive.

Thanks again for your time,



( I would recommend adding a link in the documentation between ion-item and cards )
