The JavaScript 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

JavaScript Menu supports its alignment in either vertical or horizontal orientation.

Multi-level nesting

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

Integration with other controls

No, our 1,800+ components and frameworks for web, mobile, and desktop, including our JavaScript Menu, are not sold individually. They are only available as part of a team license. However, we have competitively priced the product, so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Menu control 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 1,800+ components and frameworks for a subscription fee that starts at $395 per month for a team of 5 developers. Additionally, we might be able to offer discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our product specialists 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, 5 or fewer developers, and 10 or fewer total employees.

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