Getting Started

Configuration

The BottomNavigation provides a set of default API configuration options that can be set during its initialization. Follow the steps below to configure the Kendo UI BottomNavigation for PHP:

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps in the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create a BottomNavigation:

    $bottomNav = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigation('bottomNav');

    $inboxItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $inboxItem->text("Inbox")
        ->template('<span class="k-bottom-nav-item-icon k-icon k-i-email"></span><span class="k-bottom-nav-item-text">Inbox</span><span id="badgeInbox" style="top:2px; left:55px"></span>')
        ->data(array('view' => 'inbox'))
        ->icon("email")
        ->selected(true);

    $calendarItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $calendarItem->text("Calendar")
        ->data(array('view' => 'calendar'))
        ->icon("calendar-date");

    $profileItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $profileItem->text("Profile")
        ->data(array('view' => 'profile'))
        ->icon("user");

    $bottomNav->addItem($inboxItem);
    $bottomNav->addItem($calendarItem);
    $bottomNav->addItem($profileItem);
    $bottomNav->positionMode("absolute");

Step 3 Output the BottomNavigation by echoing the result of the render method:

   <?= $BottomNavigation->render() ?>

Items

The Kendo UI BottomNavigation's items configuration allows setting various properties. For the full set, refer to the API reference.

Note: When the items.url configuration is set, the items will be rendered as <a> tags. Otherwise, they will be rendered as <span> tags.

    $bottomNav = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigation('bottomNav');

    $inboxItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $inboxItem->text("Inbox")
        ->template('<span class="k-bottom-nav-item-icon k-icon k-i-email"></span><span class="k-bottom-nav-item-text">Inbox</span><span id="badgeInbox" style="top:2px; left:55px"></span>')
        ->data(array('view' => 'inbox'))
        ->icon("email")
        ->selected(true);

    $calendarItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $calendarItem->text("Calendar")
        ->data(array('view' => 'calendar'))
        ->icon("calendar-date")
        ->enabled(false);

    $profileItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $profileItem->text("Profile")
        ->data(array('view' => 'profile'))
        ->icon("user");

    $bottomNav->addItem($inboxItem);
    $bottomNav->addItem($calendarItem);
    $bottomNav->addItem($profileItem);
    $bottomNav->positionMode("absolute");

Appearance

The Kendo UI BottomNavigation for PHP allows you to alter the appearance of the component by setting the itemFlow, themeColor, shadow border and fill.

    $bottomNav = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigation('bottomNav');

    $inboxItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $inboxItem->text("Inbox")           
        ->data(array('view' => 'inbox'))
        ->icon("email")
        ->selected(true);

    $calendarItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $calendarItem->text("Calendar")
        ->data(array('view' => 'calendar'))
        ->icon("calendar-date");

    $profileItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $profileItem->text("Profile")
        ->data(array('view' => 'profile'))
        ->icon("user");

    $bottomNav->addItem($inboxItem);
    $bottomNav->addItem($calendarItem);
    $bottomNav->addItem($profileItem);
    $bottomNav->positionMode("absolute");
    $bottomNav->itemFlow("horizontal");
    $bottomNav->themeColor("secondary");
    $bottomNav->border("false");
    $bottomNav->fill("solid");
    $bottomNav->shadow("true");

Event Handling

You can subscribe to the select event by the handler name.

Specify Function Names

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe for events by specifying a JavaScript function name.

    $bottomNavigation = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigation('bottomNavigation');

    $inboxItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $inboxItem->text("Inbox")
        ->data(array('view' => 'inbox'))
        ->icon("email")
        ->selected(true);

    $calendarItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $calendarItem->text("Calendar")
        ->data(array('view' => 'calendar'))
        ->icon("calendar-date");

    $profileItem = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigationItem();
    $profileItem->text("Profile")
        ->data(array('view' => 'profile'))
        ->icon("user");

    $bottomNavigation->addItem($inboxItem);
    $bottomNavigation->addItem($calendarItem);
    $bottomNavigation->addItem($profileItem);
    $bottomNavigation->positionMode("absolute");
    $bottomNavigation->select("onSelect");
    echo $bottomNavigation->render();

    <script>
        function onSelect(e) {
            //handle select event
        }
    </script>

Reference

Client-Side Instances

To reference to an existing BottomNavigation instance, use the jQuery.data() method. Once a reference is established, use the API to control its behavior.

The following example demonstrates how to access an existing BottomNavigation instance.

    $bottomNav = new \Kendo\UI\BottomNavigation('bottomNav');

    <script>
        $(function() {
            // The constructor parameter is used as the 'id' HTML attribute of the BottomNavigation
            var bottomNav = $("#bottomNav").data("kendoBottomNavigation");
        });
    </script>
