About the Menu Tree
Menus are typically used to launch actions such as running another report or linking to another web page. The Menu Tree element and its child elements, introduced in v12.1, allow you to easily to create a multi-level menu.
The Menu Tree can be configured for three different modes; the default mode is HorizontalPopup, shown above. The example uses two menu branches (MainOpt 1, MainOpt 2), each of which has three menu leaves (SubOpt 1, SubOpt 2, SubOpt 3). You can also nest branches and leaves to get additional suboptions, as shown at the far right.
The Vertical mode, shown above, lists the branches and leaves in a vertical hierarchy that can be expanded and collapsed.
And the VerticalPopup mode uses a vertical list of branches and pop-up panels to display the leaves.
The arrangement of menus on the page is dependent on their containers (Divisions, Rows, etc.). The styling of the examples shown is controlled by a theme. You can supply additional styling to change their appearance.
Other Menu Variants
Logi Info also includes other menu elements you may wish to investigate; they may be more useful depending on the nature of your application. Pop-up menus (see Popup Menus) display a panel with menu options and the ReportCenter Menu is useful for displaying a menu based on the available reports.
