Creating a BottomNavigation component, as it exists in Asp.NET Core tools

Hi.  Still in the trial phase, and I was curious about this.

I'm trying to develop two apps, one in ASP.NET Core and the other in Blazor WASM.

I found the ASP.NET Core Bottom Navigation which is perfect for the ASP.NET Core project.  Shown here.

However, I'd like to be able to show continuity as users transition to the Blazor project and I don't see a BottomNavigation component listed for Blazor.

Is this something that can be added to the Blazor UI tools, or is there an example someplace I can use to get started?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bill,

There might be one in the future, right now we are still focusing on the most important features and components that have high demand (say, a Gantt), and this type of smaller components are something that usually comes a bit later. The UI for Blazor suite is just over 2 years old (and already at 70+ components, by the way), and so it still has some work on the core to do.

Thus, the best way to know when a dedicated component for such a purpose becomes available is to Follow the feature request, we keep those pages up to date with our plans and development.

I do hope that the tabstrip will suffice for the time being, even if it will require a bit more work than a dedicated component.

Thanks, Marin.

I really struggled with the tab strip - getting the content to behave like a bottom navigation component.  I was trying to do it without getting carried away with CSS. 

I've spent more time with Telerik controls now and I think I can get it to work, I was just hoping for a control that was designed specifically for bottom navigation.

Hi Bill,

I've made sure your Vote is added to this request and since you created it you are subscribed automatically for notifications so you can track its status. We monitor the public interest in such requests and when they gain traction we add them to the planning process for further review and implementation.

In the meantime, I can suggest you use a TabStrip component for this:
