    I am an experienced web forms developer, new to the Kendo UI.  I have a reasonable grasp on things, but sometimes feel I am I groping around in the dark!  :-)

    So here is my issue...

    I have a panel bar with eight root level items, each of these containing 1-5 child items.  All of these items, both parent and child contain both an image and text.  I have added a toggle button to my view that will grow or shrink the width of the panel bar, depending on the button state when clicked.  That much I was able to glean from various forum post.  What I need to know now is how to modify the root and/or child item text when growing (restore text) or shrinking (remove text) the panel bar.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

    Hello Barry,

    If the PanelBar can only have 2-3 fixed widths, then the best option is to tweak the appearance and layout of all its internal content with CSS code. Here is a simple demo, which demonstrates what I mean.

    In case the PanelBar can have more widths, then you can tweak the looks of the internal content with Javascript or a combination of Javascript and CSS. For the Javascript part, use standard jQuery selectors and DOM/CSS manipulation techniques.
