View Full Version : [FIXED-185] TabPanel with 'slide' animation should slide the other direction

29 Jul 2010, 9:51 AM
To fit the mental model of a tab system, selecting a tab that's to the left of the current tab should have the tab's contents slide from the left instead of always sliding from the right. It feels very disconnected always sliding from the right regardless of which direction I go in the tabs.

Hey Jamie,

Thanks for opening the report. Is there a place where we can see the status and where it appears on the roadmap? Not that it much matters to you guys, but this is the most visible bug in our client demos and gets comments every single dang time.

Not currently, but I can poke Tommy or Doug and bump the status.

Can you post your sample TabPanel config (with animation config) ?

To address this problem, we've added a new animation profile 'cardslide' and modified the CardLayout to leverage it.

To use it after the next release, just specify the new animation profile:

var tabpanel = new Ext.TabPanel({
tabBar: {
dock: 'top'
fullscreen: true,
ui: 'light',
animation: {
type: 'cardslide',
cover: true
// or simply
animation: 'cardslide',
Look for it in the next release. ;)

Fantastic, Doug! When's the next release expected?
