    Currently, the RadPanelBar can only act as a tab strip (role="tabstrip"). (Actually, the current implementation is missing the role="tabstrip" attribute, so it's basically invalid and only a collection of incoherent tabs.)

    The RadPanelBar, however, is rather a menu. It may, semantically, even rather be a tree view, too.

    It depends on the usage on a web page what the RadPanelBar is actually supposed to represent.

    So I suggest to add an enumeration property to the RadPanelBar enabling developers to designate it either

    • as a tabstrip (containing tabs)
    • as a menu (containing menu items)
    • as a tree view (containing tree items)
