Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if this OfficeNavigationBar is in compact mode; otherwise, false.


Office Navigation Bar can operate in compact mode only when it serves as a bottom navigation panel for the Navigation Bar control (refer to the Interaction with Navigation Bar article for more information). In this mode, the control is integrated into the Navigation Bar and docked to its bottom. All Office Navigation Bar items hide their captions and display only icons. These icons are automatically retrieved from corresponding Navigation Bar groups. The animation below illustrates an example.
