How to Place Tabs on Different Side

In order to change the side on which tabs are placed, you can use the placement property. This property accepts one of the following values:

  • Top - tabs appear on top side
  • Right - tabs appear on right side
  • Bottom - tabs appear on bottom side
  • Left - tabs appear on left side

You can change the tab placement during run-time, but its best if you can have predefined settings on where tabs will appear. Depending on tab position, the SiderBar will open the tab content in opposite direction with size set in code (width or height). By resizing the tab content panel during run-time, changes to the size are saved for the next time when side bar opens.


To change tab placement in SideBar component, you only need to specify the side at which tabs will appear using the placement property. Tabs can appear on top, right, bottom or left side in the side bar.
