Add div to tab header area

I have a tab set (width 100%) with only two tabs.  There is a lot of unused area to the right of the tab headers that I would like to add content.   What is the best way to accomplish that?  

The screenshot below shows my current layout.  The red outline is where I'd like to place a DIV with some content.  (right-aligned).  My brain is a little foggy this morning, as I think this would be a simple task.  Can you help me?

We regret to inform you that a div element will behave like a tab header by default if it is rendered inside a tab header. Therefore, rendering a div element in a tab header is not possible. To achieve your requirement, you must customise the div element in accordance with your needs, as illustrated below.



let contentToolbarTemplate: string =

  '<button class="custom-item ">Custom content</button>';

let tabContentToolbar: Element = createElement('div', {

  className: 'content-toolbar',

  innerHTML: contentToolbarTemplate,


//Initialize Tab component

let tabObj: Tab = new Tab({

  created: onTabCreate,

  items: [
