A widget that is similar to a traditional tab control, but optimized for the phone with simplified end-user interaction.

Included in: dx.phonejs.js, dx.all.js

The dxPivot widget includes items (tabs). These items are placed horizontally next to one another and navigated by flicking or panning to the left or right, or by choosing the desired pivot header. While you always see the content of one item (tab), the pivot header of the next item is visible so users can clearly see that more items are available. This widget is often used to present lists of data filtered by different criteria. Although dxPivot was created based on the native WindowsPhone8 Pivot widget, it can be used on any platform.

You can create a widget using one of the following approaches.

  • jQuery
    Use the dxPivot jQuery plug-in.

    <div id="pivot"></div>
        dataSource: pivotData
  • Knockout
    Add a div element and apply the dxPivot binding to this element.

    <div data-bind="dxPivot: {
        dataSource: pivotData
  • Angular
    Add a div element and apply the dx-pivot directive to this element.

    <div dx-pivot="{
        dataSource: pivotData

Note that DevExtreme widgets require you to link the jQuery and Globalize libraries to your application. If you use the Knockout or Angular approach, the Knockout or Angular library is also required.
