Shiny by RStudio

Create a navigation list panel

navlistPanel(..., id = NULL, selected = NULL, well = TRUE, fluid = TRUE, widths = c(4, 8))


... tabPanel elements to include in the navlist
id If provided, you can use input$id in your server logic to determine which of the current navlist items is active. The value will correspond to the value argument that is passed to tabPanel.
selected The value (or, if none was supplied, the title) of the navigation item that should be selected by default. If NULL, the first navigation will be selected.
well TRUE to place a well (gray rounded rectangle) around the navigation list.
fluid TRUE to use fluid layout; FALSE to use fixed layout.
widths Column withs of the navigation list and tabset content areas respectively.


Create a navigation list panel that provides a list of links on the left which navigate to a set of tabPanels displayed to the right.


You can include headers within the navlistPanel by including plain text elements in the list. Versions of Shiny before 0.11 supported separators with "------", but as of 0.11, separators were no longer supported. This is because version 0.11 switched to Bootstrap 3, which doesn't support separators.


shinyUI(fluidPage( titlePanel("Application Title"), navlistPanel( "Header", tabPanel("First"), tabPanel("Second"), tabPanel("Third") ) ))
<div class="container-fluid"> <h2>Application Title</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 well"> <ul class="nav nav-pills nav-stacked"> <li class="navbar-brand">Header</li> <li class="active"> <a href="#tab-1247-1" data-toggle="tab" data-value="First">First</a> </li> <li> <a href="#tab-1247-2" data-toggle="tab" data-value="Second">Second</a> </li> <li> <a href="#tab-1247-3" data-toggle="tab" data-value="Third">Third</a> </li> </ul> </div> <div class="col-sm-8"> <div class="tab-content"> <div class="tab-pane active" data-value="First" id="tab-1247-1"></div> <div class="tab-pane" data-value="Second" id="tab-1247-2"></div> <div class="tab-pane" data-value="Third" id="tab-1247-3"></div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
