jQWidgets jqxSwitchButton orientation Property

  • Last Updated : 30 Sep, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxSwitchButton is used to illustrate a jQuery button widget that changes its verified state after being clicked. Moreover, it’s quite identical to the jqxToggleButton, yet possesses a distinct user interface view.

The orientation property is used to check the orientation of the displayed switch button. It is of type string and its default value is “horizontal”.

Its possible values are:

  • horizontal
  • vertical



To set the orientation property.

$('Selector').jqxSwitchButton({ orientation:vertical });  

To get the orientation property.

var orientation = $('Selector').jqxSwitchButton('orientation');

Linked Files: Download jQWidgets from the link. In the HTML file, locate the script files in the downloaded folder.

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css” type=”text/css” />
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”scripts/jquery-1.11.1.min.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”jqwidgets/jqxcore.js”></script>
