Basic Configuration

To specify the page width where the content will become hidden, use the breakpoint configuration option of the ResponsivePanel. To define the placement of the expandable content, use the orientation option of the component.

The following example demonstrates how to collapse the menu on the left of small screens.

    <!-- toggle icon, .k-rpanel-toggle hides it on page width > breakpoint -->
    <button class="k-rpanel-toggle"><i class="k-icon k-i-menu"></i></button>

    <h1>Site header</h1>

  <!-- responsive panel -->
  <nav id="sidebar">
    <a href="#">Home</a>
    <a href="#">About</a>

  <article id="content">
    <p>Lorem ipsum<p>

        breakpoint: 768,
        orientation: "left"
      .on("click", "a", function(e) {
        // Handle clicks of dummy items. Actual links do not need this.
        alert($( + " clicked");

    #sidebar {
      /* The panel background has to be set to match the design. */
        background: #092646;

    article {
      /* Clear the floating sidebar. */
      overflow: hidden;

    html, body {
        margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
    body {
        font-family: Arial,sans-serif;
    header {
        padding: 1em;
        color: #fff;
      background-image: linear-gradient(to top, #014F80 0%, #092646 100%);

    h1 { display: inline; }
    p { padding: 2em; }
    nav a {
        border: 1px solid #ccc;
      background: #ddd;
      display: block;
      text-decoration: none;
      padding: .5em;
