Overview

The ASP.NET MVC Menu Bar is a graphical user interface control that serves as a navigation header for your web application or site. It supports data binding, templates, icons, multilevel nesting, and horizontal and vertical menus.


Data binding

Menu can be bound to data in the form of JavaScript object array collection. It supports self-referential or hierarchical structure of data.


Users tend to perceive visual information better than text. Include icons or sprite images to the menu items easily to provide a visual representation of the actions.


Templates is used to create custom user experience. Menu provides template for each menu item to customize the entire Menu UI.


Vertical Menu

ASP.NET MVC Menu supports its alignment in either vertical or horizontal orientation.


Multi-level nesting

Menu supports multi-level nested items. You can browse the sub-menu by hovering or clicking a parent item.

Integration with other controls

ASP.NET MVC Menu can be used with other controls. Adding a menu to other controls only requires simple configuration.


Built-in themes

ASP.NET MVC Menu supports built-in themes such as Bootstrap 5, Tailwind CSS, Fluent, high contrast, and more. Users can customize these built-in themes or create new themes to achieve the desired look and feel either by simply overriding SASS variables or using the Theme Studio application.

No, our 80+ ASP.NET MVC components, including Menu Bar, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Menu Bar alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 80+ ASP.NET MVC components for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
