Left oriented tabbar with layout parent

I’m trying to construct a tabbar with the tabs on the left hand side, and with a dhtmlXLayoutObject as it’s parent. I can see how to do this with a

as the parent, but can’t see how to have the layout without the default tabbar orientation. Is there a setMode method (looked but can’t find) or a way to construct this properly?


You may define orientation in the attachTabbar method:

dhxTabbar = dhxLayout.cells(“a”).attachTabbar(“lelft”);

Thanks Alexandra, that worked perfectly.

Is there a way I can orient the text on the vertical (left hand side) tabs? i.e. rotate the text 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

I have checked all the documentation and samples but cannot find anything that looks like it might answer this.

You may set html as tab label. It could be an image with a vertical text.
