Creating Blazor StackLayout

  1. Use the <TelerikStackLayout> tag to add the component to your razor page.

  2. Inside the <TelerikStackLayout> tag, add the desired HTML containers (e.g. <div>) or components. Each immediate child element will represent one stack layout item.

  3. Set Width and Height.

  4. (optional) Set the Orientation parameter to determine the layouts direction.

StackLayout basic configuration.

@* This example showcases how the StackLayout fills the entire parent container and some of its core features. *@

<style>
    .parent-container {
        height: 500px;
        width: 500px;
        border: 1px solid black;
    }
</style>

<div class="parent-container">
    <TelerikStackLayout Orientation="@StackLayoutOrientation.Horizontal" 
                        Width="100%" 
                        Height="100%">
        <div style="background-color: aqua;">
            Aqua colored stack item
        </div>
        <div style="background-color: cornflowerblue;">
            Cornflowerblue colored stack item
        </div>
        <div style="background-color: blue;">
            Blue colored stack item
        </div>
    </TelerikStackLayout>
</div>

Nested StackLayouts

Use nested StackLayout to create a page layout.

<TelerikStackLayout Orientation="StackLayoutOrientation.Vertical" Height="100%">
    <div class="red">
        Header
    </div>
    <TelerikStackLayout Orientation="StackLayoutOrientation.Horizontal">
        <div class="green">
            Navigation
        </div>
        <div class="yellow">
            Content
        </div>
        <div class="orange">
            Right side content
        </div>
    </TelerikStackLayout>
    <div class="purple">
        Footer
    </div>
</TelerikStackLayout>

<style>
    .red {
        background-color: #dc3545;
    }

    .green {
        background-color: #198754;
    }

    .yellow {
        background-color: #ffc107;
    }

    .orange {
        background-color: #fd7e14;
    }

    .purple {
        background-color: #6f42c1;
    }

    body, html {
        height: 100%;
    }

    app {
        display: initial !important;
    }
</style>
