yes ,but in Side navigation we don’t set icon only if we leave title empty it will took some space so used Tab for side navbar now i want to add submenus

This can be fixed with CSS for sure.

Hi, @gangadharhiremath20710
this will give you a direction
add your styles and themes

public class Toolbar extends MenuBar {

    public Toolbar() {


        Button contactsButton = new Button(LineAwesomeIcon.USERS_SOLID.create());

        SubMenu sub = addItem(contactsButton).getSubMenu();
        sub.addItem(item(LineAwesomeIcon.USER.create(),"Contacts"),(clickEvent -> {
            // here is you click event
        sub.addItem(item(LineAwesomeIcon.LIST_ALT.create(),"Lists"),(clickEvent -> {
            // here is you click event

        sub.addItem(item(LineAwesomeIcon.BUILDING.create(),"Accounts"),(clickEvent -> {
            // here is you click event



    private Div aItem(String text) {
        Div div = new Div(text);
        return div;

    private HorizontalLayout item(SvgIcon icon,String label) {
        HorizontalLayout hl = new HorizontalLayout();
        hl.add(icon,new Div(label));
        return hl;


A rail navigation will be added to Vaadin+ soon. Unfortunately, there’s a few blockers in review at the moment. Once released, it should help solve your use case.
