The React Menu Bar is a graphical user interface component 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.

React Menu Bar data binding

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

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

Multi-level nesting

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