This property determines how this group's children are displayed. Possible options are:

  • VerticalTabs: Similar to the Tabs option, but in this case the tab bar is shown as a vertical column on the left instead of a horizontal bar on top of the group.
  • Cards: Components will be shown as cards in the UI. In K2BTools 13.0 and earlier, this option was called "Table".
