Segmented control can be used in two ways:
Secondary tabs: if the page already has a set of primary tabs used as navigation, this can be used as a sub-navigation of those primary tabs.
View switcher: in the case of a page in which the same piece of content is shown in more than one format, this component can be used as a switcher between the different views.
At smaller breakpoints, this pattern should be swapped out for one more suited to the available width, such as a select.
Use the class
p-segmented-control to make your tabs appear as a group of buttons.
By adding the
is-dense modifier to the
p-segmented-control element, the buttons will take on a more compact appearance.
The pattern also supports the use of icons within each button.
To import the segmented control component into your project, copy the snippet below and include it in your main Sass file.
// import Vanilla and include base mixins // this only needs to happen once in a given project @import 'vanilla-framework'; @include vf-base; @include vf-p-segmented-control;
For more information see Customising Vanilla in your projects, which includes overrides and importing instructions.
