Offset classes are coming to Office UI Fabric

January 28, 2016

A week ago I submitted a pull request to the Office UI Fabric repository to include a new set of offset classes. These offset classes could come in handy when you want to position your elements on the page.

Info: here you can see the details of the pull request -

Today the pull request got merged into the master branch. That means that in the upcoming release you will be able to make use of these new classes.

What does these offset classes do?

The offset classes allow you to move elements / columns to the right.
