Occasionally to change the aesthetic design of the web page, the developer would like to reposition the expansion indicator on the WebPanel. By default, the expansion indicator is displayed on the right side of the header. Unfortunately, the WebPanel does not provide a property to change its location. However, this can be accomplished using some simple JavaScript.

Step-By-Step Example

1) Add the follow JavaScript code into a Script block on the page:
In Javascript:

function LoadPanel()
    ig_getWebControlById("<%=WebPanel1.ClientID %>").getHeader() = "left";

2) As the WebPanel does not have a client-side initialization event, a client-side event that fires after the page has been properly loaded must be used. The client-side “onload” event of the Body tag can be used. Set the “onload” attribute of the Body tag to refer to the JavaScript function added in the previous step, similar to:

<body onload="javascript:LoadPanel();">

In place of the JavaScript added in step 1, the following JavaScript function can be used to make the code slightly easier to read:
In Javascript:

function LoadPanel()
    //get the panel
    var panel = ig_getWebControlById("<%=WebPanel1.ClientID %>");

    //get the Header
    var header = panel.getHeader();
    //change the alignment on the rendered image element = "left";
