The Vue Sidebar, also called the side navigation menu, can be used to simplify the navigation hierarchy. Users can place primary or secondary content alongside the main content in this control. It provides a flexible container that can be expanded or collapsed based on user interactions. Any type of HTML content or component can be placed in the Sidebar for quick access and easy navigation, like quick references, menus, lists, and tree views.

Transition and animation

Different types of slide-out content in the Sidebar component give users the flexibility to view or hide content over or above the main content by pushing, sliding, or overlaying it.

HTML content positioning to the sides

The Vue Sidebar control positions its content to the left or right side of the main content area. This option allows the placement of two sidebars in a page, to the left and right, to show primary and secondary content simultaneously.

Dock the HTML side panel content

When the side content is docked to give the main content more space, the navigation text is represented as a shortened view of icons.

Toggle sidebar menu

Bind custom actions to an element (hamburger menu or buttons) to toggle the sidebar.

Responsive sidebar

Auto closing the Sidebar component’s content allows the main content area to be more readable.
